I may not be able to ever drink other coffee again, lol. I enjoy coffee but never really knew the process. I knew when on the Big Island I wanted to visit a Kona coffee farm and I am so glad we picked this one. When we first walked in we were greeted by a beautiful view and the delicious... More

Loved the coffee and experience. Mary gave us a tour and was extremely informative and friendly. She made the trip to Hula Daddy worthwhile!!! We met the owner, Lee, who is personally involved in the coffee making process. The master brewer, Laura, was also very friendly and knowledgable. The medium roast was exceptional as was the dark roast they served... More

Was so glad that I chose Hula Daddy to tour. The staff was friendly and can answer any question you can think of about coffee. Good to see that quality is their priority and not quantity like many other businesses. Must see when in Kona.

So we happened upon this place by chance and were we ever happy we did. We got there just before close so they were winding down but still welcomed us and gave us a full tour and explained everything in detail about the process and the manufacture of their coffee. It was so interesting and very personal. I love how... More

Recently visited Kona and stopped by to see this plantation. The view is amazing and the coffee is even better. The tour was extremely informative and hands on. The only downside to this experience is now I constantly crave their coffee, the Kona Sweet is outstanding!

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
