The owners of this place have a great story and such beautiful property. I had never been to a coffee plantation before. Was very glad we made it here. Friendly people with a love of coffee that shows. The tea was actually my favorite product, but coffee connoisseurs will be in love. Views are top notch as well!

HD was one of the highlights of our trip to Kona & the Big Island. If you are a fan of small operations who pride themselves on *quality, *personal service, and *'doing it right,' this is for you. This was not a pre-planned experience - we walked in off the street into the open arms of the staff. They could... More

For all of my coffee-drinking life, Kona has been my favorite. I was stoked to take the tour on this, my first trip to Hawaii, and see firsthand how some of the finest coffee on earth is produced by hand. Loved the free samples, and could not decide on my favorite, so I ordered plenty to ship home. I'm pleased... More

Very good tour, professional, very interesting to know how my morning coffee is made. Best coffee to try. Facility is well maintained and very pleasant. Very disappointing that it costs so much to send to Australia :(

The Tour: A great tour of how coffee is grown, selected and processed before it winds up in your cup. The staff and owners are knowledgeable and caring. They take the time to answer all questions and demonstrate how the operation works. This is one of the cleanest coffee operations I've ever seen. No pressure whatsoever to buy anything. (They...

Boutique coffee. Hand picked. Cultivated with love and roasted with the utmost care. The product is top shelf. Enjoy the personalized tour and ask all the questions you want. You'll never want to drink another cup of bitter coffee again!

Recommend this place if you've never been to a coffee plantation before. The office/site is just a part of the overall operations. More acres up on the mountain. But you get the sense of the process on their smaller site. HD lay out 3 different coffee and 2 diffferent tea (from coffee leaves) tastings. Coffee tastings were great and you... More

We enjoyed our stop at this plantation. We arrived promptly at the 10AM opening and were greeted by the owner - Mr Hula Daddy, on the porch of the building. The view from the building of the plantation and the Kona seascape is breathtaking. Several samples are offered: the "sweet" brew is their award winner. Our tour guide was extremely... More

I don't remember why we picked Hula Daddy to visit over some of the nearby coffee farms, but I'm really glad we did! The tour was very informative and their coffee tastes great. The package with the coffee that we bought there just arrived and we're looking forward to trying it again.

Really, the title of this review says it all. That being said, the staff was very knowledgable and friendly. We did the tour with Britney who really knew her stuff. To top it all off the view is spectacular. Have fun!
