Enduring Establishments

This year, in honor of the 25th anniversary of Maui Nō Ka ‘Oi, we are celebrating beloved local businesses that have stood the test of time. Here are four more of our favorites.

Maui Oma
David Gridley, founder; Maria Holmes, V.P. and director of sales and operations; and Grant Schule president and CFO.

Maui Oma Coffee Roasting Company
Est. 1998

In 1988, David Gridley landed a job in a local coffee shop and immersed himself in the art of roasting, cupping and brewing. He had a knack for developing new flavor profiles, and soon he was creating special roasts for local chefs by request. In 1998 Gridley opened his own shop, Maui Oma Coffee Roasting Company, and quickly became one of Hawai‘i’s top roasters, renowned for his high-quality coffees and custom blends.

Today, Maui Oma sources beans from Hawai‘i and around the globe, and uses “Big Red,” a 60-kilogram Probat roaster, to produce its small-batch specialty coffees. And though Gridley retired in 2018, his passion lives on with president and CFO Grant Schule and vice president and director of sales and operations Maria Holmes. Purchase these time-tested beverages online or at The Country Market in Waikapū.
