Hawaiian Beanz Coffee Company in Damascus: my home away from home, my place of refuge from the stress of my life, my knitting retreat, and my first choice when I want a a latté, capuccino or mango smoothie.
Karie, Mike and their kids Amanda and Andrew are ‘ohana to me, and I am Aunty Mokihana to their friendly workers. I’m in the shop a lot, and usually order the same thing: a 16-oz sugar-free fat-free decaf raspberry mocha extra-hot no whip.
I’ve ordered it so many times that Mike and Karie named it after me! Last week Karie even wrote its name in my mocha!
