Aloha and welcome to Da Kine’s Kava! 

We’re so glad you found us, and we hope you’re ready to experience the relaxing benefits of kava.


My husband Brent introduced me to kava on one of our first dates, when he took me to a local kava bar to hang out after work. I loved having the option to drink something other than alcohol, and I loved how the kava made me feel calm and relaxed, but I wasn’t so excited about the earthy taste. Although plenty of people love plain kava, together we realized that kava could reach even more people if there was a wider array of delicious flavors to choose from. Hence, Da Kine’s was born!

We came up with our first recipes in my parents’ kitchen, and from there we built our business from the ground up. We handcraft each of our drinks ourselves, and bottle them in small batches with a little help from our retired dads (who LOVE kava... and helping their kids). We couldn’t have done it without the love and support of our friends and family, which just goes to show what kava is really all about. We’re so excited to share what we’ve created together, and to welcome you into the kava community.

Da Kine is a Hawaiian Pidgin word that can mean just about anything you want it to. Da Kine’s Kava is meant for anyone and everyone, and we hope you love it as much as we do.

Much Mahalo,


Co-Founder and Co-Owner
