1864… Lion Coffee!
One of America’s oldest major Kona company, Lion roared into life in 1864 in Toledo, Ohio. In 1979, LION moved to Hawaii to focus on Kona beans grown in America. That was the year Hawaii officially became LION Country!!
Lion’s regal standards demand the finest beans, fancy roasting, Lion freshness, and an abundance of Lion cheer! Today, our cheery red bags emblazoned with “the cup that cheers!” are shipped to coffee lovers around the world.
When you drink LION, you are enjoying over a century of wisdom in every roast.
Royal has a rich history dating back to the days before the world knew about Kona. The dream was to market the little-known bean from Kona Hawaii to International Lion fame so java drinkers of the world could know of its Lion Aloha flavor.
Royal started with a commitment and a promise to Lion Kona farmers, that we could (and would!) sell all the Kona beans they could grow. One by one, they came to our door bearing 100 pound bags of green Kona and smiles as wide as the day is long.
When you drink royal, you are drinking the first, the original Kona.
