This is a third generation coffee farm in the Kona district of Hawaii. The business name is in honor of my mom, Bea, and is a play on the expression "the bee's knees." The meaning can be googled, but Webster's dictionary says, "a highly admired person or thing." Other definitions say "height of excellence."
The logo will be used on the website and on labels which will go on the bags of roasted coffee. I would like the logo to somehow convey Hawaii and/or coffee since the name doesn't. This needn't be totally obvious; a hint is fine.
For visual examples/ideas of coffee images, you can look at Google Images and search "coffee tree graphic".
You may want to consider "buzz" -- bees buzz, you get a buzz from coffee, "buzz" creates excitement. Slang. a feeling of intense enthusiasm, excitement, or exhilaration.
I've included an image/idea of my mom's for the logo. I like the direction it's going, but I'm interested in completely other ideas, as well.
