Pono Potions Sells All-Natural Syrups For Coffee, Cocktails and Cooking
The company is part of Mana Up’s sixth cohort
Pono Potions lets you add the natural flavors of the Islands to your drinks and culinary creations.
Owner Peter A. Hessler says he combines ingredients from local small farms and businesses to create syrups in flavors like Golden La‘ie Vanilla, Ali‘i Lavender and Maika‘i Mac Nut. To support the local community, the company says, it has a bottle recycling program and donates 10 cents from every bottle sold to the Hawaii Foodbank.
You can buy from the website, on Sunday mornings at the Lōkahi Kailua Market and, in coming months, from a new factory, store and espresso bar at 1119 Smith Street in Chinatown.
