Koana had her soft opening in August 2019. She is a local Hawaiian specialty shop, located in the Mountain View Village, halfway point between Hilo and Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. It was thoughtfully designed and put together by Brian and his wife Jan, longtime coffee lovers: they began to seek out and gather a diverse selection of rare and award-winning coffees from local farms and roasters. For two years, they juggled their work schedules and parenthood in order to visit between Hawaii, Tokyo, and Taipei, to further educate themselves in coffee, and then they finally open their café and shop.
