I used your Kona Coffee Spices last evening to rave reviews from my husband. I just wanted you to know how great they are.

I was recently at a dinner party when the hostess told me she had to show me some spices she loved. They were yours!!

You got it going on. No words can tell you what you have happening in your mouth…. I have made a number of my own dishes and added your spices and it came out better than ever.

I hate to cook but this cooking class inspired me to try making a healthy meal a fun family adventure in my own home. What could be better than doing something together that is healthy and fun?

I met you a couple months ago on Maui at Down to Earth. Thank goodness you offered your sample food to me that day! My Family and I are hooked!! We have your tomato pasta recipe once a week. It’s so crave-able!...I am so blessed to have met you. Thanks for sharing your recipe sheet and expanding my cooking horizon with your fabulous herbs!

The Kona Coffee rub is out of this world! We bought a pound more through your website along with your Hawaiian spice rub.

Some good friends of mine are currently visiting the island, and I’ve commanded them to visit the Saturday Market this weekend, and urgently advised them to find you…I am excited for them to meet you. I’ve told them about you, that you have an amazing heart and are so beautiful inside and out, while your spices are brilliant, it is actually knowing you that makes cooking with them an act of Love.

I totally ran out of the Exotic Curry and I’m finding myself in dire need if some. Potatoes and rice and everything else are just not the same without it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We used the Spice Rub on 40 pounds of pork shoulder, smoked with hickory for 14 hours at 225 degrees. Our family reunion Luau night on the lake was a huge success. Everyone loved the flavors and many people asked about Ka’iulani Spices…Great rub, great service, and all ate with a really big smile!
