We have been to Lava Java twice (both times we were in Maui) and I have to say that the coffee is amazing. More importantly, the owner and his son/staff were very welcoming. My 3 daughters couldn't get enough of the frozen lava java. Can't wait to go back and will be ordering coffee online from now on

Locally grown coffee. Very good! Nice to enjoy while sitting on their lanai or walking along Kalama Park.

Free sample. Then 12 oz. cup of mocha ice. Good, sip slowly or you will freeze the roof of you mouth.

I was looking for a local coffee shop and decided to try this one. It was advertising 100% local coffee. I ordered a cappuccino and to be honest, it wasn't great. I don't know what went wrong but I wouldn't order one again. That said, maybe the other coffee was good?? I wouldn't want to dissuade anyone from going here,... More

We were warmly greeted by the owner when we entered the coffee shop. He provided a complimentary sample of a blended coffee drink which was excellent and I would've ordered had it not been early morning and I craved a hot mocha. The coffee beans Lava Java uses are grown and roasted in Maui therefore have a refreshing flavor unlike... More

This is a regular stop for us to get our local coffee beans - they are experts and help with the selection and will grind them for you for your own coffee maker. Great selection, great staff, definitely recommended.

No food, not even very good coffee menu. Cold coffee was premixed like slurppy. Ugh won't go back. Mostly selling bags of coffee not drinks. Dont expect Starbucks.

Our perfect morning ritual is our walk to Lava Java. The best coffee bar in Kihei. The owner greets us daily with a small sample of his iced coffee, which is free. (Not much on Maui is free!). We love the Peabody coffee he serves in his Americano's, You will not regret your stop here, which had much better coffee... More
