Is Mahalo's Mini Donuts a franchise?
No. Mahalo's was created by owners Troy and Julie while on vacation to Waikiki Beach in 2014. Their love for the Islands and admiration of the ALOHA SPIRIT is the inspiration behind Mahalo's Coffee and Mini Donuts.

Where does Mahalo's Coffee Come from?
We hand select our coffee beans from the Maui Grown Estate and the Big Island. Our beans are then roasted on the Big Island and are shipped the same day. Our beans arrive in our hands within 48 hours of being roasted. We are committed to providing the freshest and purest Hawaiian Coffee around.
Isn't Kona Coffee the only real Hawaiian Coffee?
No! The only coffee grown in the United States is coffee that comes from farms on Maui, Molokai, Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island. Coffee from Hawaii is known for it’s high praise, accompanied by an equally high price. Hawaiian coffees are the only coffees grown in the United States (sorry, Puerto Rico is a territory). Although many think of Hawaiian Kona Coffee, Royal Kona Coffee, or Hawaiian Gold Kona Coffee as being the best, or even the only coffee Hawaii has to offer, many do not realize that the islands of Hawaii have a lot more to offer than just pure Kona Coffee.
Kona Coffee Confusion (Bad news if you buy your Kona Coffee on the mainland)
If you purchase Kona coffee from a store anywhere other than Kona, you are very likely purchasing a Kona Blend. In Hawaii there is a state law that requires a minimum of 10% Kona coffee and the percentage has to be written on the label. On the mainland there is no such law so a “Kona Blend” might be 0% Kona coffee. Even at 10%, that means a Kona Blend is 90% cheaper filler beans.
What do you need to know when it comes to Kona Coffee?
AVOID: Kona Roast – Most likely has 0% Kona coffee.
AVOID: Kona Style – Most likely has 0% Kona coffee.
AVOID: Kona Blend – Has just 10% Kona coffee if purchased in Hawaii and as little as 0% if purchased elsewhere.
BUY: 100% Kona Coffee – Island coffee is special and will cost more. Make sure you getting 100% Kona.
What makes Mahalos Mini Donuts the healthiest donut around?
