The cause pays tribute to Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii's namesake: the donkeys of Kona, Hawaii that for generations carried loads of coffee beans down the steep volcanic mountain sides. The native people of Kona named these hard-working donkeys the "Bad Ass Ones" because of their reliably strong, but stubborn nature.
