The Surfers Coffee Bar got an extra jolt last Friday morning with a visit from Stumptown’s very own David George. This seven-year veteran with Stumptown Coffee Roasters took the five hour flight from Portland to Wahiawa to up the expertise of the already “Top 10 Coffee Shops in Hawaii” placeholder.
SCB Barsita, Karen Domingo was thrilled to have the opportunity, and recognizes the benefits it will have on Surfers Coffe Bar: ”"In general, I think it was important that all of our baristas were trained together. Not only do we know we’re on the same page, but we’re all following the same high standards. David is a good teacher- he taught us important barista basics- from from pulling a great shot if espresso, to steaming milk, making latte art, brewing a simple pourover, and properly caring for our machines. He even explained more about Stumptown as a company. Since we are a non-profit, it was key for us to know the good work behind Stumptown’s good coffee. They know their farmers and give them fair wages directly, which in turn has given the farmer’s communities a better quality of life (education, medical support, proper housing). When we use our motto “more than a cup of coffee” we know that we’re not just helping our home community, but we’re supporting other communities worldwide.
We invite you to come in and take a seat as we warm up your mornings with a perfectly poured Americano. The Surfer’s Coffee Bar is stoked to serve StumpTown Coffee Roasters with excellence by our trained full time volunteer staff. Whether or not you’re the coffee connoisseur that can identify the origin, aroma and taste of the pulled shot of coffee in your cup; or you’re the simple kind that just needs a cup of joe and a bagel to go, The Surfers Coffee Bar is ready to serve you! Mahalo to Stumptown Coffee Roasters for helping us bring Wahiawa a better cup of coffee!
Don’t you love it when something that’s already good, gets taken to the next level and made so much better? That is what has happened at the Surfers Coffee Bar.
Thanks to the generosity of people in Hawaii and all over the world, The Surfers Coffee Bar, already an amazing coffee shop serving quality, fair trade coffee, is now serving drinks using a new grinder, filtration system and top quality LaMarzocco espresso machine.
Stop by and get your chance to test out the new machine! If you’ve already been to SCB, come try out your favorite drink with the new machine. It’s almost like visiting an all new coffee shop, but with all the things you loved about it still perfectly in place. If you’ve donated through the Kickstarter campaign, come and redeem your rewards!
As for my own personal review: this is not only for coffee drinkers! I took a break from my usual cappuccino and I ordered a chai latte. It was so good, that I literally turned around and got another one right after!
(Note to self: order the largest size next time!)
Come by this weekend! Surfers Coffee Bar, 63 Kamehameha Hwy, Wahiawa, Oahu.
