A collection of articles about my favorite restaurants on Maui. The Maui lifestyle isn't just about the sun and the sand, but also experiencing the vibrant flavors and atmospheres of the island's restaurants. 

Best Coffee on Maui

The 'magic bean', as one of my former chiropractors used to lovingly refer to coffee, is a ubiquitous part of many of our daily lives. And for those of us that live on Maui and for the millions that visit every year, knowing where to find the good stuff is all part of being a connoisseur.

Sure, Maui has many Starbucks locations conveniently located around the island and I'm not above the occasional Nitro Cold Brew from the coffee giant. But, Maui is blessed with so many great locally-owned coffee spots that it's almost a crime not to check them out.  I've narrowed down several of my personal favorite local coffee shops to drop into when I'm in these different parts of the island and the next time you're in the area, you should too!
