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.

We visited on the in-law's recommendation. Pretty cool place with an amazing view. Cool old clock as a centrepiece piece in the kitchen. During the tour, we heard a great story behind the family and history of the plantation. The coffee is very dear, no doubt because of the small size of the plantation. Also they had won many awards,... More
