I like their coffee bean, mail order from them many times. The coffee they ship to you simply vinyl bags packaged inside USPS priority mail box without any additional protection. It may be fine unless during the heavy raining days. USPS officer leave the box under the rain which can have the box completely soaked with water. I would like... More

Aloha Thank you for saying that you like our coffee. We are confused as to why you are angry at us because your postman left your package in the rain. You said that the coffee in the sealed vinyl bags was not damaged and was good. Your complaint was that the Priority Mail box was wet. We take ecology seriously.... More

We stopped by Hula Daddy and were impressed at how friendly the staff were. They provided other tips of things to see in the area, things to do, etc. The hospitality was terrific. We enjoyed the laid back tour of their company, and of course the samples of their delicious Kona coffee. My husband is the coffee drinker, and I... More

Hula Daddy was one of the place's I was intent on visiting. I've been ordering coffee from them for years and I was looking forward to seeing the plantation. It was not a disappointment. After a little adventure finding the place (GPS wasn't so helpful) we got there and I was immediately struck by how much smaller it was than... More

For coffee lovers, this place is a must! Hula Daddy is an hour and 45 minute scenic drive from Hilo, where I was staying, but it was definitely worth the trip out! The view on the land that Hula Daddy is located on is amazing and so serene while sipping on as many tasting cups of coffee as you can... More

A friend who lives in the island took us here the last day of our vacation. We took a short tour of the farm and also met the owner - who was so great and informative about their process and product. We left with an order for coffee, tea and chocolate being shipped home. Such a lovely place on a... More

We stopped in and took the coffee tour which was very informative and personalised. We got to try the coffee beans at each stage and even drank the tea made from the coffee skins. The coffee is easily the best on the Island and free to taste. The souvenirs are also pretty cool with a great logo. Thanks Hula Daddy... More

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
