Today’s SF Chronicle features an article on some of the lesser-known coffee growing regions of Hawaii: Hawaiian Islands erupt with new coffee regions. For each of the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Hawaii (the Big Island), they offer info on the coffee growing history of the island, what’s brewed from there today, and additional tourist perks near the growing regions.

Just when we were pointing out the annoying media obsession with all things shiny and new earlier this week, here comes this article’s headline. But while coffee growing has a history on the islands dating back to a commercial farm in Koloa, Kauai back in 1836, many of the designated growing regions in the article have only been operating plantations since the late 1980s.
