Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii is announcing today that its second Lexington location – 3070 Lakecrest Circle in Beaumont – is having its opening weekend October 9-10. Earlier this summer, Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii debuted at 685 S. Limestone, at the base of the newly constructed Hub on Campus Limestone apartment complex near the University of Kentucky.
“Our appreciation goes out to everyone who gave us such an incredibly warm welcome since we opened our first location near campus just over a month ago,” said Bryce Walker, the area Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii franchise owner and longtime Kentucky resident. “We already feel like part of the community’s ‘ohana (family) and can’t wait to develop this same connection with everyone in Beaumont.”
Inside, guests will enjoy a relaxing experience with nods to Hawaiian culture, décor, and lore along with the aroma of delicious premium Hawaiian coffee. The beverage menu also includes signature lattes, cold brew, popular blended espresso drinks and teas. The food menu offers various Hawaiian-inspired items such as delicious breakfast and lunch sandwiches served on KING’S HAWAIIAN™ bread, including the Bad Ass One which features Spam, egg, swiss, and pineapple.
Guests can also purchase retail bags of Bad Ass Coffee to brew at home or the office including 100% Kona, 100% Hawaiian Coffees, Hawaiian Blends and Signature Blends. In addition to taking home the distinct taste of Hawaii, guests can purchase shirts, mugs and gifts.
Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii originated on the Big Island. Its name pays tribute to a very important animal in Hawaiian coffee history: The Donkey. Legend has it that for generations, the donkeys of Kona, Hawaii could be heard bellowing as they carried precious loads of coffee beans down the steep mountains of the Big Island. The native people of Kona named these hard-working donkeys the “Bad Ass Ones” because of their reliably strong, but stubborn nature in carrying their precious cargo. The legend of those hard-working donkeys lives on today at Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii, a company that is “stubborn” about sourcing, roasting and serving quality Hawaiian coffee with the Aloha Spirit.
Recently under the new ownership of Royal Aloha Coffee Company, Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii has updated its branding, packaging, and restaurant design concept as part of an aggressive expansion plan to open 150 new locations over the next five years.
