Honolulu Coffee Co.

On the third level of the Ala Moana Shopping Center is a cooling, refreshing antidote to the humid heat that is Honolulu in mid-August, the kiosk of the Honolulu Coffee Co.

The straight espresso I ordered was -- well, OK, it wasn't all that great. But the iced coffee was really an iced Americano, and THAT was delicious.

(Note: other locations exist, as well, but this is the only one I experienced.)

    I've had great espresso at the Moana Hotel branch, but I may have lower standards than you ;) I like my espressos not too tannic and thick with cream, and these fit the bill.

      This was thin, bitter, and the crema was very flat.
