We loved this small plantation and visiting with the owner himself about his plantation and coffee. The process from growing to roasting and brewing is demonstrated. Lots of varieties to taste and buy.

Absolutely worth a visit. Thank you, Mary, for a great tour. We all enjoyed it. After the samples, we certainly had to buy some coffee to bring home. The view from the field is beautiful too.

I've been drinking coffee for 37 years and had never thought about where it comes from. I know what I like to taste, and dark, burnt beans aren't it. I've always liked the taste of Kona coffee, but never understood why. Thanks to our knowledgeable and friendly guide at Hula Daddy, I now understand. The samples were generous and tasty,... More

What I like about this place is their ETHICS they pay their pickers by the hour, and not by the pound like so many other coffee plantations. Really amazing view from inside, and very kind people working there.

We were there all on our own so got the tour guide to ourselves. She answered all the questions we had about coffee, how it grows and how it is processed.

Aloha You have made our day with your great review. Mahalo nui loa. We are closed on Sunday for two reasons 1) we need the rest and 2) since we sell out our crop every year being open on Sunday means we will sell out that much sooner.
