1864… Lion Coffee!
One of America’s oldest major Kona coffee companies, lion kona coffee roared into life in 1864 in Toledo, Ohio. In 1979, LION moved to Hawaii to focus on the only beans grown in America. That was the year Hawaii officially became LION Coffee Country!!
LION’s regal standards demand the finest beans, fancy roasting, freshness, and an abundance of cheer! Today, our cheery red bags emblazoned with “the cup that cheers!” are shipped to coffee lovers around the world.
When you drink LION Coffee, you are enjoying over a century of wisdom in every roast.
1968… Royal Kona Coffee!
Royal Kona Coffee has a rich history dating back to the days before the world knew about Kona. The dream was to market the little-known bean from Kona Hawaii to International fame so coffee drinkers of the world could know of its Aloha flavor.
Royal Kona Coffee started with a commitment and a promise to Kona Coffee farmers, that we could (and would!) sell all the royal kona coffee beans they could grow. One by one, they came to our door bearing 100 pound bags of green Kona and smiles as wide as the day is long.
When you drink royal kona coffee, you are drinking the first, the original Kona Coffee.
