Maui Wowi Hawaiian Celebrates National Coffee Day With Half-Off Online

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Coffee has become such a staple in our morning routine and as an afternoon pick-me-up that when National Coffee Day rolls around on September 29, nearly two-thirds of Americans will indulge in some java. To add to that, coffee drinkers are drinking nearly three cups a day, totaling more than 500 million cups nationwide (source).


No one understands this love for coffee better than Maui Wowi® Hawaiian Coffee & Smoothies (www.MauiWowi.com). That’s why the global smoothie and coffee concessionaire, known for its brightly-colored mobile tiki huts and kiosks, wants to celebrate National Coffee Day with you by offering a one-day-only online discount exclusively available at shop.MauiWowi.com. On Saturday, Sept. 29, customers will receive 50 percent off their orders of limited-time and classic Maui Wowi Hawaiian coffees by using the promo code ALOHACOFFEE at checkout.


“We are looking forward to sharing our premium blends with coffee aficionados at a steeply discounted rate for the sixth year in-a-row on National Coffee Day,” said Mike Weinberger, brand president for Maui Wowi. “Maui Wowi harvests only the best beans from Hawaii’s Kona District, Molokai, Maui and Kauai regions, which gives our roasts an outstanding taste profile and personality. From our Kona coffees to the full-bodied roast of the Hawaiian blend to smooth, flavorful options like Vanilla or Toasted Coconut, everyone will find something to enjoy.”


In addition to this one-day deal, Maui Wowi will bring back a few longtime fan favorites for a limited time: 


  • Maui Mountain Roast: With beans cultivated in the premier coffee growing conditions on Maui, this is a bold coffee blend with subtle hints of wild berry and an earthy finish. Available Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 for purchase online and in select retail and event locations nationwide.
  • Pumpkin Spice Latte: This premium specialty espresso beverage marries the finest Hawaiian espresso beans with the same flavors that make pumpkin pie a Thanksgiving tradition to create the fall season in a cup. Available Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 at participating retail locations and select event locations.
  • Peppermint Mocha: This holiday favorite combines flavorful premium Hawaiian espresso beans with rich chocolate and bright peppermint flavors to give it a smooth, refreshing taste that makes it a hit with holiday coffee lovers. Available Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 at participating retail locations and select event locations.
