Coffee Omakase by Kona Coffee Roasters

Omakase, in Japanese, means 'I’ll leave it up to you,' and is commonly associated with a prix fixe menu for sushi. Our Coffee Omakase allows you to try the best of the best, at the barista’s recommendation.

With coffee omakases, we want you to experience the same thoughtful curation, serving unique coffee beverages that highlight the distinct flavors of Kona coffee. While we currently do not offer this unique experience, we are diligently preparing to bring it to you soon.

Get Ready for a Coffee Adventure

A coffee omakase is the antithesis to the conventional coffee tasting experience. Traditional coffee tastings, or cuppings, use a standard brewing method to streamline the process of tasting and comparing different coffees. We wanted to break out of that conventional format and redefine coffee tasting by offering a more curated and experimental experience. Our omakase demonstrates the diverse range of coffee as an ingredient and maximizes the variety of ways to enjoy it.

Expect nothing standard at our coffee omakase. From the format of the event to the expertly brewed coffees, everything is designed to provide a unique experience. You'll have one-on-one time with a barista who can answer questions about coffee, the courses, and our business. The coffees you will be served are specially sourced and uniquely prepared, showcasing our commitment to bending the rules and creating a brand-new coffee experience.
