Such a quaint and well kept coffee farm! Beautiful views too! Loved the tour with Tia - she is very knowledgeable and friendly! The owners were very friendly and helpful and their coffee and tea (made from the outer shell of the coffee berry) are super delicious! You come to understand why Kona coffee is pricey but well worth it... More

Just visited and took the tour. The coffee is amazing! The owner's passion was very evident and she was so informative. She was also a joy to be around. The grounds are beautiful. I recommend Hula Daddy's to anyone visiting the Big Island.

Nice tour. Clean. You won't get dirty. Korean and Engilsh available. Coffee was very tasty. I bought the chocolate-covered macadamia nuts. Gorgeous view and kitchen facilities.

Had a great tour with one of the owners guiding us. She was a wealth of knowledge about Kona coffee. Very enjoyable coffee with a view.

Beautiful location! Was more than happy to purchase a $60.00 one pound coffee until the owner of Hula Daddy said during the tour,"I have a college degree, I don't have to pick my coffee, I have people to do that for me". Total turnoff!

Aloha Denise I did say that but I meant it as a joke. I am sorry that the joke didn't go over. In fact, I do pick coffee regularly and there are photos of me picking coffee on our website and on Facebook. We appreciated your visiting our farm. We promise not to tell any jokes if you come back.... More

Wow. I don't think I even knew how amazing my trip here was until I visited other coffee farms in Hawaii, the other islands, and internationally. HANDS DOWN THIS IS THE BEST COFFEE I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. Bold statement? Yes! But trust me on this...the quality of Hula Daddys coffee and coffee farm tour is unlike... More

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
