Daniel Charlson, the founder of Dark Horse Coffee Roasters, grew up on Kauai, a small island in Hawaii where he was surrounded by coffee fields, that's certainly where his passion for coffee culture was planted.  He has always had a fascination with good coffee and being from a tiny Island, community has always been massively important to him.

For part time jobs, as a kid he'd work in coffee shops, ever expanding his knowledge on coffee beans and their origins.  He remembered back to his days in Kauai how local farmers would pick the coffee beans and bag them for export.  He learned more on real coffee and how it was an art and craft.  It wasn't long before he wanted to try his hand at coffee roasting, doing it the real, local way. He bought a small roaster and began experimenting.  After a lot of trial and error, he was making the best coffee he'd ever tasted.

That's when Dark Horse was born.  He invites you to come try their coffee experience.  From smelling the beans roasting right there in their shop, learning more about how they brew, to their exclusive Dark Horse only beans - you'll feel the Kauai experience from the moment you step inside.
