Dreams Really Do Come True...

Monday, July 01, 2002

Always wanting to own their own business together and tired of working the 8 to 5 jobs, Jennifer and Brent found paradise. It was long past the last signal and over the one lane bridge, and past the state's largest taro plantation nestled up against the beautiful mountains and their cascading waterfalls. With the Hanalei river on the right to guide them, they found Hanalei town. The smell of fresh coffee and fresh baked bagels lead them to Old Hanalei Coffee Co. Full Of charm, and a personality all its own, the building was built in the 1920s. Old Hanalei Coffee Co. was established in 1994, and Jennifer and Brent Hickman took over as owners in 1997. Eager to let others know of the great Hawaiian coffees (the only coffee that's 100% American), they opened their second shop, on the south side of Kauai overlooking beautiful Kalapaki Bay. It was here, while watching the surfers, that they decided to start roasting their own coffee for themselves and for others. So Brent took over the arduous task of making sure that they roast the best coffee on the island and Jennifer threw herself into designing unique labels to adorn her husband's work. Longing to get fresh baked bagels and muffins on the island, they started work on their third shop in downtown Kapaa, which is a full gourmet bakery and juice bar. So that is how the husband and wife team created Hawaii's Java Kai, Kauai's first micro coffee roasting company. They hope you enjoy the cup of paradise that this husband and wife have helped to prepare you- and that it reminds you of cascading waterfalls and beautiful sunsets. Dreams really do come true... The Hickman Family Brent, Jennifer, Harrison, Preston, and Gracen
