What a view! Nice tour, only about 30min. From the trees, to the nursery, to the roasting process and they answered all our questions. Good coffee.

Hula Daddy is one of many Kona coffee plantations that offer tours. Hula Daddy is a smaller operation compared to say, Mountain Thunder, but it does have really picturesque building and sometimes smaller scale allow for more personable experience. We were in the Holualoa area and wanted to do a coffee tour. Hula Daddy offers free tours with complimentary Kona... More

The tour is very informative, and you can tell these people know their stuff. I really wanted to love their coffee. I had planned to take back bags of it for gifts to all my coffee loving family and friends. It's not cheap, and I understand why. We visited at the end of the day, so maybe the coffee had... More

Aloha Kelly. We are sad that you didn't enjoy our coffee. My husband remembers talking to you and even getting some more cream for you. We wish you had said something about the coffee. We would have put out a new pot right away. Mahalo Karen More

We went with our kids and we received a kids adapted tour where even the kids received good information. You can taste coffee and thee naked from coffee parts. I should recommend to go here even if you drink only a bit coffee.

We had a tour of the facility and Tyra was our guide. She was extremely friendly and informative. We learned the process from planting the trees, to harvesting, and roasting, and got to sample several coffees and teas.

Very informative tour - how the trees grow, the variety of trees and beans, the processing of the beans and of course, the tasting of freshly roasted coffee. Includes tips on keeping coffee fresh and which roasts have the most and the least caffiene. This is a relatively small coffee grower, but only sells 100% Kona Coffee. It's delicious!

The front office of this plantation is so airy and charming, it draws you in. And then you get samples of the coffee in the front room - delicious on both counts of the types they had when I visited. The tour itself was very informative - I never knew much about coffee except that I have to have it... More

The owners of Hula Daddy are passionate about their coffee, and were so willing to share their knowledge with us. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of their beautiful facility (with its amazing views) the well tended trees, the careful attention that goes into each batch of coffee, and of course, the tasting!
