Now, before you drop your yoga mat and dive into Wanderlust, we thought we’d provide you with four key things you need to know—and can do—during this year’s festival.


Your Guide to North Shore Coffee

Historically, Hawai’i has been renowned for its agriculture production, growing sugarcane and pineapple and every delectable commodity in between. The islands’ rich volcanic soil and winterless sub-tropical climate yield an abundance of crops. It should come as no surprise then that everyone’s favorite energy booster, the coffee bean, has its roots deep in the islands soil. While Kona coffee reigns supreme in coffee shops worldwide, fewer recognize that Oahu was the birthplace of coffee production in Hawai’i. And further, the North Shore of Oahu produces some of the finest premium coffee in the world, making it a go-to destination for coffee lovers and jet-lagged travelers alike. The Waialua Estate began growing premium coffee in 1996 following the closure of the Waialua Sugar Company, after a century-long sugar production tenure.
