How It All Began
Maui Oma Coffee Roasting Company was founded by David Gridley in 1993. Maui Oma was established to create individual coffee programs for restaurants and cafes throughout Hawaii with the emphasis being to create single origin varietals using 100% Hawaiian coffees as well as developing proprietary blends for Hawaii’s finest chefs.
In 2018, David retired and to this day, Maui Oma considers itself a small to medium size roasting company paying attention to quality and freshness in every step. With over 20 years of sourcing quality beans from around the world and in Hawaii we take great pride to ensure a great cup of coffee.
All our coffee is roasted and blended to order. Coffee is never sitting around for months before you receive it.

Meet The Team
Randy moved to Maui from Virginia Beach in 2005 with 3 suit cases and enough cash for 1 month and a rental car… He saw an ad posted which read:
Do you know electricity?
Do you know plumbing?
Do you like coffee?
He responded with “2 out of 3 ain’t bad” and started working at Maui Oma shortly thereafter. He’s come to know coffee well as he was already an experienced electrician and plumber. Over the last 13 years, Randy has dedicated himself to the food service industry in Hawaii and goes out of his way to ensure Maui Oma’s customers are satisfied. He’s learned to match the needs of our customers to their equipment by working with them side by side. His mission is to keep your equipment in good working order so you can focus on what you do best.
The saying goes, the Devils’ in the details…. Well here at Maui Oma, our Office Manager, Wade is into the details! He’s been with Maui Oma since 2015 starting out as our Delivery Driver; however, he had a keen sense for numbers and customer service. He’s been at the numbers game for the last 3 years and enjoys working on the production line and always finding ways to help our customers serve the best coffee possible while supporting their growth and development. If you become an Oma Customer, chances are you’ll be talking to Wade frequently.
Geoff’s first experiences with coffee began in downtown Honolulu working at a coffee cart on the corner of Bishop and Hotel St. That stint landed him a job at Starbucks Coffee at Ward Center where he made his way up to Shift Supervisor. It was at a Golf Tournament in 1998 where he met David Gridley and that’s where the fun began. Geoff is originally from Maui so he moved back in 1999 and started working at Maui Oma as a General laborer, and delivery driver. He had an interest for roasting and took over as the head Roastafarian (his words) in 2007. Geoff roasts and services both our 60kilo Probat as well as our 35kilo US Roaster. He’s also the creator of our slogan “Oma Goodness”.
Delivery Driver & Customer Service Tech
In the summer of 2016, Jessica found her way into Agriculture on Maui and starting working on an Upcountry Maui farm as a Farm Technician and she was also the Tour Supervisor. At the farm, she recognized her passion for coffee and has become a good steward of the land. As Maui Oma continued to grow its customer base, we were in need of a production roaster, so in 2017, Jessica was hired not only to roast, but also to learn the art of blending and taste profiling. Jessica also enjoys working with our smaller Maui farmers to provide them with custom roasts for their estates.
