The owners of Hula Daddy, Lee and Karen, constructed a beautiful "visitors center" overlooking their farm and house on the Kona hillside. They offer free small intimate tours of the farm with a complete demonstration of the coffee production process. The staff is very friendly and well informed. Before and after the tour they offer free tastings of their coffee.... More

I agree with arnold v with the weather in the mountain make this your first stop in the morning. The coffee is smooth yet bold due to it's place on the mountain. The chocolate covered coffee beans are really good as well. Definitely worth a stop on your travels.

The weather up on the hillside, and the views are stunning. Kona coffee only grows within a certain area on the hill, so the beans get the best weather and the best views on the island. I have never had coffee so smooth, so delicate, but so full of flavor. There's a free tasting, and the warm, friendly, and knowledgeable... More

We selected Hula Daddy based on other reviews and I'm really glad we did. The workers are exceptionally friendly, especially Teresa! She was smart, funny, and very friendly. We liked her immediately. We got a really great tour and some yummy coffee to try! Of course I ended up taking some home. I also got a great "Who's Your Hula... More

If you're a coffee snob or just like smell, I would suggest you take a toyr of Hula Daddy. At first, they weren't even on our radar but we're glad we heeded some local advice. The tour was great. Not only is it free it comes with unlimited cups of fresh brewed coffee and tea. We learned everything about the... More

After researching all the plantation tours on the big island, we picked this one. We are glad we did. This was an amazing time. We drove up to the front, parked, walked up and immediately met owners Kai and Cocoa. Oh yes we also met Karen and her husband as well. They both made us feel so welcomed. The tour... More

The staff were great, very welcoming, and they give you free coffee samples which is amazing! I wasn't crazy about the tour, but that could just be me because I'm not a huge coffee drinker, and wasn't too interested in the process. If you like that sort of thing, they're very knowledgeable though!

The tour guide, Theresa (I think), made the visit so lovely! She was very knowledgable and seemed to really love her job! The owner was also there when we visited, perhaps because there was a film shoot for a travel program going on. Despite needing to attend to them, he chatted with all of us normal people too! Very nice.... More
