Lion Coffee Started in the Mid-1800's

It takes eleven minutes to roast the beans for Lion Coffee with the above machine. There is a separate room filled with liquid flavor and another machine for flavoring. The original company was formed in the mid-1800's and it is the oldest trademarked coffee company in the United States that is still in operation. It was started in Illinois and brought to Oahu. The company is small in size but they roast, package, and distribute their coffee internationally. Their coffee is served exclusively with Hawaiian airlines, local hotels, and sold in many local markets. These facts and many others interesting ones were revealed to me though their daily tour.

Sounds like you thoroughly enjoyed your tour of Lion Coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker but processes like this fascinate me, so I probably would have had a great time, too. Thanks for sharing.
