BEGINNINGS Like many couples on vacation, Walter Lappert and I dreamed of finding a way to live in Hawaii for more than two weeks a year. We never suspected the solution would appear in the form of an ice cream cone. We returned to Hawaii as often as possible, and on one visit, Walter bought an ice cream cone that was so awful we immediately threw it away. He looked at me, I looked at him, and we proclaimed that we would come back here to make really fabulous ice cream. Over 25 years ago, our "factory" was a single ice cream machine, and our "desk" was a door on two sawhorses. The first flavors we tested were macadamia nut and vanilla. It was hard work, but darn it, somebody had to do it. Hawaii deserved a delicious, handmade ice cream. Those first two flavors (and the half-gallon of blueberry cheesecake we made for the electrician) expanded to over two hundred flavors. We now have two machines and have recently added a gelato machine. COFFEE & BAKERY There was no time for hammocks, and very little relaxing on the beach. Then, in 1985, we bought a cup of coffee we didn't care for and immediately tossed it away. We looked at each other and said "Uh, oh!" Two months later we had a coffee roaster behind our ice cream factory where we roast artisanal coffees, including several Hawaiian coffees. And what's a gourmet cup of Kona coffee without a delectable cinnamon roll to go with it? Together we tested many of our favorite family recipes and now Lappert's Hawaii's mouth-watering bakery goodies are becoming as popular as our signature coffees and gourmet ice cream. TODAY Walter's gone now, but the spirit of aloha that we created together lives on in everything we do at Lappert's Hawaii. All of our products are made fresh daily in small batches right in Hanapepe, Kauai and are available only in Hawaii. We continue to use only the finest ingredients, whether in our ice cream, coffee, bakery goodies, or our new line of organic flavors and authentic Italian-style gelato. Aloha & Mahalo!
