How to relax with coffee in Hawaii

There's only two surefire ways to refresh the body and wake up the mind. Getting away on a long holiday is one, and a fresh cup of coffee is the other. But imagine the energy you'd have if you combined those two together. Well, when you visit Hawaii, you can do just that.

The Aloha State is well known for some of the most amazing R and R resorts, and one of the boldest coffee flavours in the world. If you're reading this between squinted eyes, then it seems that a trip to Hawaii is almost inevitable.

Check out how you can make the most of coffee during your holiday in Hawaii.

Grab a cup to go

To begin, you'll need to grab a cup of Kona coffee, as it is known for being one of the best brews in the world. Coffee fanatics are probably already familiar with this roast so it will be all the more enjoyable when you can sip from inside the Kona region itself. The reason this coffee has such a distinct flavour is because of the Hawaiian environment in north and south Kona. The high elevation, dark volcanic soil and consistent cloud coverage make for the perfect coffee recipe. Enjoy at a cafe or take a tour of the plantation.

Get a coffee scrub

Next, really detoxify with a coffee scrub. These treatments have a ton of surprising benefits for the skin. You can either head to a nearby spa and ask for a package, or just make your own in the resort with leftover grounds from your daily cup of Kona. The caffeine found in fresh grinds wakes the skin up just like it does in your brain. A scrub naturally and safely removes dead skin. This improves circulation, making skin tighter and reducing the appearance of cellulite, giving you firmer complexion.

Coffee hair treatments 

Finally, just like caffeine is good for your skin, it's also amazing for hair follicles. Save some of the grounds from the scrub for your hair as well. A quick rinse with a regular shampoo routine increases hair shine and boosts colour. Not to mention it also works as an excellent au natural conditioner. Note as a rule of thumb, the lighter the hair the less grounds you use, or risk staining the locks. Caffeine is even thought to help treat hair loss because it is so powerful in stimulating the roots at the scalp.

By following these tips, you can take relaxing over a cup of coffee to a whole new level during your next holiday in Hawaii.
