This is a small coffee plantation. If you haven't been to one before (and we hadn't), it will be much smaller than you are expecting. But that's GREAT! There were only 4 of us on... read more

This is a small coffee plantation. If you haven't been to one before (and we hadn't), it will be much smaller than you are expecting. But that's GREAT! There were only 4 of us on the tour, and we get to taste a raw coffee berry. You can sample the coffee, and if they have a coffee you want to... More

This is a great place to stop on your way from Kona to Captain Cook or the Volcano. They have many different coffee and tea samples to try while visiting their gift shop!

We stopped by Hula Daddy on a whim - we were trying to avoid the harshest midday sun and wanted to sample some true Kona coffee, plus, we really liked the name! The view from the back of the shop was incredible! I could have sat there all day and enjoyed. On top of that, the coffee was delicious! The... More

We had some time to kill before our flight so we stopped for a quick tour of the plantation, tasted some coffee and of course bought some coffee to take home with us. The tour was quick and informative and the coffee was great. If you have some time to kill before or after your flight, stop in and meet... More

We went based on Trip Advisor recommendations. It was quite interesting to see how carefully and literally by hand coffee is tended to, with lots of care and attention. We didn't realize there are so many varieties of coffee plants! There are samples available and knowledgeable staff throughout to help you learn more about coffee. You can venture below the... More

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
