My husband and I visited the plantation in September and were treated to our own personal tour by a lovely young lady. It seemed magical to actually touch coffee "cherries" on a real live coffee tree! And what was even better was discovering that the cherries can be dried and used to make tea! Just one tasting and I was... More

A great location to visit with nice airy ambience, definitely take the tour and try what they suggest (based on your preferred blend). Coffee is fantastic and a treat! If you are not sure what to order at time of future purchases, go with their suggestions. Love it!

Not far up the hill from Kona is this small operation. You enter off the porch into the main room, that has a lovely view over Kona and the ocean, and where you can sample their coffee. Tours run periodically and take place on the grounds. There are some stairs, but it is not strenuous. The staff are friendly and... More

This is our favorite Kona Coffee on the Island. We have probably tried coffee from 75% of the coffee farms here, and we always end up back at Hula Daddy. If you have not purchased real Kona beans before then you will be in for sticker shock, around $60.00 per pound. The chocolate covered coffee beans are the best I... More

This is a fun stop in Kona where you can get REALLY good coffee. They have free samples of all their blends, although the actual bags themselves are SOOOOO expensive. The house where they have the store and samples is really nice, with great views of the fields below. The staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable as well. We went... More

Made a stop here on our last day on the Big Island. It is a cute place with the most amazing view of the Kona Coast. Coffee tastings were available as well as a team that is made from the outer shell of the coffee beans, not tea leaves. I am not a coffee drinker, but certainly enjoyed the tea.

Stopped by here on our way down to Kona and took the tour. Very informative tour about Kona coffee and the whole growing, harvesting and roasting process. Learned a lot about peaberry coffees and whole fruit coffee processing. Staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Our family (young girls 7,9) visited in mid September. Great coffee planation and very informative tour (20 min)- perk also that tour is free. Girls were even engaged. We were able to pick coffee bean fruit, extract the bean and even taste! Great tasting Kona coffee and we left with some. Staff is extremely friendly.
