Very friendly informative tour of a great little coffee farm on the mountain overlooking Kona. Easy to find, with an excellent tutorial on making coffee and plenty of purchase options.

The tour is very interesting and you get to sample different kinds of coffee and 'coffee beans' right from the tree.

If you are looking for a bit of a time killer, check out Hula Daddy. They give you free samples and an inexpensive tour of the facility. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Coffee tour was at 10 AM. Met by an extremely knowledgeable guide who took us through the process of coffee production and why Hula Daddy coffee is special. Great coffee tasting experience which on its own was worth the price of admission.

The hostess was kind & knowledgeable. She gets 5 stars. But we were disappointed that the literature did not state tour times & dates. We arrived on a non touring day. The coffee was good but $$$

If you're going to visit a coffee farm, then Hula Daddy is the place to see. It's small (boutique) and unassuming. Several things stood out about our visit. 1. The coffee: wow... it's the best I've ever had. I - literally - didn't know what...More

We stopped in on a rainy day for a tour. Incredibly knowledgeable staff and a quick and informative tour. We got to see the actual roasting of the coffee and watch the roast master do her batch tasting.
