It is October and the Fall Season is here announced by pumpkins beginning to fill the aisles of the supermarkets in Hawaii. (I would love to buy a large pumpkin for $5.00 like in the photo!) As the days and nights get chillier, a steaming bowl of this delicious pumpkin soup with a Hawaiian twist, is sure to get rave reviews. If you need some authentic Kona coffee shipped to you direct from the Big Island, we can help!
