☕ Deaf Chat Coffee

Image
Deaf Chat Coffee is a place where ASL users can meet and drink a cup of coffee or other drink. Deaf Chat Coffee is not new for Hawaii's island. A long time ago, there was a Deaf Chat Coffee at the Starbucks on Kilauea Avenue in Hilo.

Jessica established the Deaf Chat Coffee in September 2016 . About 10 people monthly attended for almost for 2 years at the Starbucks Prince Kuhio Plaza in Hilo. The most visitors are hearing and deaf women. They enjoyed the chat on Saturday night from 6 pm to 9 pm. Sometimes, we got curious locals, tourists and home buyers from the Mainland.

January 2018 was the best month for Deaf Chat Coffee. In this month, about 16 visitors attended the Starbucks.

Unfortunately, Jessica stopped attending Deaf Chat Coffee because of a busy life. There are still Deaf Chat Coffees in another places on the Mainland and Oahu (?)
