This is a nice little stop for when you are out and about exploring the island. They have samples of about 20 different flavors of macadamia nuts and Kona coffee to try. You can watch a video on the macadamia nut harvest and then the canning process. Usually, you can see them working in the canning line, but of course... More

Our visit was wonderful! They have a large variety of flavors of nuts to taste and also some of the local coffees. You can watch them process the nuts and purchase not only nuts but also other items. Staff were very friendly.

We stayed at the Waikoloa Hilton King's Lands and the Hamakua Macadamia Nut factory is a quick trip up the road. Most of the visitor center is a shop with every kind of flavor you can imagine (spam macadamia nuts anyone?) and all the taste testing you can manage. There's a cute little self photo frame for pics. The kids,... More

I did not know that you could get macadamia Nut in so many flavors. You can also find Brittle in numerous flavors. Highly recommend this as a stop.

Coconut glazed, Chili Peppah, and Wasabi Macadamia Nuts are just some of the treats to be enjoyed at this wonderfully generous Nut Company. Walking in the door, one is greeted by the bright colors and tasting table laden with a cornucopia of differently flavored Macadamia Nuts, nut brittle, and flavored popcorn. Free samples of island coffee are a perfect accompaniment... More

It was a quick stop. Great for bringing home treats for friends and getting to sample the coffee, nuts and brittles. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

One of our favorite stops during our stay on The Big Island. Fun self tour. Friendly employees. Lots of samples. And to top it off great items to buy and take home. We loved it. Would go back again if we travel to The Big Island again.

We loved going to Hamakua Mac Nut Co. Be sure to get there before 5, even though they are open until 5:30. It would have been that much more fun to see the work in progress. The tasting tables are plentiful with no pressure to purchase. It was neat to see the huge mountain of mac shells in the back... More

Assuming you have enough time it is worth spending 1 hour here. You get the full program: Introduction Video with the production details, a view into the production, you can open you own nut (and eat it), and also enjoy a shop where you can taste as much as you want and of course also buy. This is not a... More

We got to the Nut Co. visitor center soon after it opened at 9. There are two tasting tables, one just inside the front door as mentioned by the previous reviewer, and one at the back. So many different flavors to try, as well as coffee, brittles, chocolate covered nuts, and raw macadamias you can crack from the shell (I... More
