Grocery store promotion, buy a single serve orange juice, get a free can of this.


The Mouse tried. IMO, Meh. Kinda weird, but drinkable. Maybe it’s an acquired taste, but The Mouse likes cola and coffee, just not together. There’s a vanilla flavored one too. Maybe The Mouse will give that one a try try (only if it’s on promotion, hee hee). 

Stay safe and well.

Treats on the return.

So, the last time we were in the area, The Mouse spotted a cap he was intrigued with, but because we were in a rush to see sunflowers, The Mouse blew by. Filed in the back of his mind.

Since we were in the area … check it out. The old Wailua sugar mill, converted into a small shop and chocolate/coffee processing operation.

After a quick tour of the operations, The Cat found her chocolate covered coffee beans. She also picked up a chocolate bar (all Waialua chocolate) and a bottle of mac nut oil.

In the Basket

And yes, the item The Mouse was interested in. A SPAM cap!


Hee hee!

The Cat and The Mouse also found a new natural drink The Cat is liking.

The Trailer

Mush smaller than a truck. In another sugar mill converted into a shopping/eating complex.

Sugar Cane Juice

We googled it. The juice has health benefits as well as refreshing. Good deal!

Outside the Trailer

I think the owner wanted to show that she is authentic. Kinda cute. The Mouse shoulda thought faster and asked for some of the pulp to throw on the grass at home. Bringing a large trash bag next time. 🙂

To all our veterans, thank you.

Enjoy. Eat well.

“A Walk in the Clouds”? Kinda?

Coffee, not grapes. No Paul Sutton, Neo, nor John Wick. Not even Ted. But still pretty breathless.

Picking Coffee Beans





Farms is one of few certified organic. They are also heading toward “off the grid”. Solar, water catchment, etc. Awesome visit. Thanks Dawn and Robert! Hana Hou!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Jus’ kidding. Cubicle eating.

Recently, The Mouse has to start with coffee. Not good, have to cut back, so hard when coffee at 7-Eleven is so cheap.


Most Kona coffee blends have 10% or less Kona coffee, this one has 20%! Score!

The coffee is usually accompanied by a bowl of oatmeal, extra fiber (weekdays/workdays).

Yesterday, the warehouse owner’s mother (one of the founders) passed around mochi (why? dunno, just smile, say thank you, and eat).

Nom, thanks Mrs. K.

Heading to our first gastropub for lunch. Should be interesting.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Unplugged, Part I

If you guessed we “unplugged” on the big island, you were correct. Spent the weekend playing tourist with CB.
