Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii was born on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1989 with the dream of sharing American-grown, premium Hawaiian coffee with customers everywhere. But, with a name that begins with Bad Ass Coffee, it's easy to bypass the true inspiration behind the brand name that holds a special place in Hawaiian coffee history.

The Bad Ass Legend: For generations, the donkeys of Kona, Hawaii could be heard bellowing as they carried precious loads of coffee beans down the steep mountains of the Big Island. The indigenous people of Kona named these hard-working donkeys the "Bad Ass Ones" because of their reliably strong, but stubborn nature in carrying their precious cargo. The legend of those hard-working donkeys lives on today at Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii where the brand remains stubborn about sourcing, roasting, and serving quality Hawaiian coffee with the Aloha Spirit that centers on best-in-class hospitality. The brand proudly supports these hard-working donkeys through its Bad Ass For Good – Give A Hoof program that raises funds for nonprofit donkey rescues: Longhopes Donkey Shelter and Leilani Farm Sanctuary.
