In 2019, Origin Coffee Roasters was established in Kihei, Hawai’i. As a roaster with our operations based in a coffee growing region, our intention is to highlight the origin & source of our beans.
Recognized as the island’s most award-winning coffee roaster, Origin Coffee is proud to have put specialty coffee on the map in Maui. From winning Maui’s Best Coffee Roaster, to a consistent winner of scores above 90pts from Coffee Review, along with roasting the first ever Maui grown coffee to be on Coffee Review's Top 30 Coffees. Our staff’s expertise & skill has impacted the culture of coffee on the island and made us leaders in our industry.
Origin’s founder & roaster Heather Brisson-Lutz is no stranger to the specialty coffee scene. Her journey with coffee began as a part-time barista in the mid-west. It wasn’t long before this became a full-time career. Heather was inspired by cafes and roasters in the PNW, and within a few years she was on a successful path honing her craft as a barista in Portland, Oregon.
Over the years Heather became more intrigued by the roasting process, and especially interested in the intricate journey coffee takes from farm to cup. She envisioned each one, from the farmers hands, to the skilled roast-master & baristas, to the customers first taste.
As a small business owner, she knows the job is never done. Whether is it working directly with local farmers, developing roast profiles, packaging & sales, she is a well-seasoned professional continuing to innovate and lead in the field.
A lifelong dream to be in Hawai’i has brought Heather and her family to the island and she commits to establishing the strongest connection possible to this spectacular growing region and its vibrant community of coffee lovers.
"Our goal is to never stop learning within our industry and beyond it. This ensures we deliver a product we are proud of, something the customer will love. "
We believe that having a direct relationship at the farm level benefits the impact we have to our consumers. Farmers and their workers are an integral part of the quality of coffee we source. When a partnership is formed between farmer and roaster there is more honest and collaborative purchasing relationship and opportunities for experimental methods and further innovation.
Farmworkers are on the frontline of the crop. They nurture the quality and care that comes forth at first taste. We know that by infusing lasting relationships at the farm level that it creates a higher success rate for us all. Origin Coffee Roasters are about doing better. We don’t rely on labels or policies as much as we rely on building and keeping successful and stable relationships, and it shows in our farm direct partnerships and throughout our entire company culture.
