finding your tree “Let’s pick a tree” is a colloquial Hawaiian expression for having a conversation of significance…whether it means to “talk story”, relay news of import, or settle a beef. Essentially, it means let’s find a shady cool place to have a civil conversation rather than sweating, and possibly swearing, uncomfortably in the searing tropical sun. That is our hope for The Understory…to create a portal to a shaded conversation about what coffee wants to be. This is our salon of links, bonds and associations, and we invite you to share a cup and engage. Welcome.
