|At the rooftop level of the Ala Moana shopping mall, this location in their chain is also where the green beans arrive and the roasts begin. Being in a mall, it's more modest than their Sheraton Moana Surfrider location. But it still has dark-wood chairs. This location is very popular in the afternoons with Japanese women tourists for some reason. Using a two-group La Marzocco (as with nearby mall kiosk), their baristas make their espresso from their lightly roasted Honolulu Blend (10% Kona) and produce a medium brown crema of very good consistency. Their baristas also produce good microfoam for milk-based drinks. With a cedar, smoky flavor. An espresso worthy of Hawaii's coffee-growing heritage. Some coffee pros are real detractors and detest the coffee at this chain, but for some reason my samplings have been very good.
