The third annual Art of Hawaiian Coffee event presented by DFS Galleria Waikiki will showcase Hawaii coffee growers and their specialty coffees. Many of the specialty coffees at this event are only available through their local farms or online and often are limited in quantity. Pete Licata (formerly with Honolulu Coffee Company), 2013 World Barista Champion, will be a judge for the latte contest.
This event also celebrates the 200th anniversary of coffee cultivation in Hawaii. Some of the coffee-related activities will include: free samplings, an exhibition on the Hawaii Coffee story, a Latte Art Competition, a coffee cup mosaic demonstration, coffee stain art created by a Marvel Comics anime designer and coffee-inspired beauty makeovers and desserts. The event is free and open to the public.
