    Nice store decoration, in the morning, there is usually a wait line. Just want to try a cup of coffee. Coffee is as good as compared to other stores. The place is on the first floor of a multi story building with available parking for customers. There is some outdoor tables for customers to enjoy the all year around warm weather while sipping coffee.

    Our original plan was to stop here on our way to do the Road to Hana, but we loved it so much we made sure to stop by the following morning (our last day in Maui) as well! The staff on both days were friendly and helpful. The coffee is delicious! They have some really fun and tasty specialty coffee options. I tried both the Hawaiian Honeybee and Road to Hana (iced) and enjoyed them both a lot. They have some fun hanging chairs as well as other seating areas inside, but we did think the interior felt warm (like there was no A/C or it wasn't on). There were a couple tables out front as well. We will definitely visit Akamai Coffee on future trips to Maui! Two thumbs up!

    I consider myself a bit of a coffee enthusiast (a bean boy, if you will) and after trying a number of coffee spots around Maui, I can say Akamai is without a doubt the best “third wave” coffee I have experienced here. I tend to gauge a coffee shop by its straight espresso, and Akamai doesn’t disappoint. They make a well balanced shot with good acidity and they serve it in an adorable custom demitasse with sparkling water - that’s how you know they aren’t goofing around. Their menu doesn’t have traditional drinks on it - I figure to cater to a broader crowd - but the barista’s eyes light up if you order a cortado or a flat white (both of which were on point), so don’t be afraid to order your favorite drink. This particular shop in Kihei was my favorite - way less crowded than the one in Wailea which had a line of resort goers at the door before opening the day I went. The Kihei shop has immaculate vibes and the entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about their craft. Aside from picturesque sunsets and wonderful endemic birds, Akamai will be what I miss most about Maui when I head home.

    Saw their coffee shop in a YouTube video and decided to give it a try as it wasn't far from where we were staying. Soooo glad I did. The Chocolate chip banana bread was excellent but the star of the show was the Nola Cold Brew.....WOW! Great tasting with just a hint of sweetness from the milk just as they describe it. I'm definitely going back before my vacation finishes!! Enjoy.

    The store was tastefully decorated, but the value of my espresso drink was mediocre. I purchased a 16 oz iced vanilla latte and received about 3 ounces of espresso with 13 ounces of ice. Should’ve gotten the drink hot I guess lol Their banana bread was average tasting and a small slice. Not worth the $4. Their ham and cheese croissant was tasty. I really wanted to like this store more than I did. Maybe next time it’ll win me over?
