    Fun Tour
    We did the early farm tour. When we first arrived tasted a bunch of the coffees that Kauai Coffee had to offer including some limited batches. Then we boarded an open air bus and was given a guided tour of the farm by Lisa. She was very personable and shared a lot of great information about both the Farm but also the history of farming on the island and the community. I highly recommend doing the tour if you want to see the property and get a some background about the process.

    Perfect for the Coffee Lover!
    We decided to take the "Coffee on the Brain" tour at Kauai Coffee Co. We love good coffee and are always looking for new ways to brew and different types of beans to make that perfect cup. We were not disappointed! We got to try 2 different coffees made 2 different ways while Melissa taught us how to pick good coffee, the appropriate grind for a particular brewing method, how to measure and many tips and tricks on making that perfect cup! After our lesson, we took a walking tour through the plantation, and she educated us on the different varieties and methods to harvest and roast coffee. She was so knowledgeable and made the tour a lot of fun! After the tour we were treated to a free cup of coffee of our choice (the kids who didn't want/drink coffee could choose from ice cream or another drink). We chose to buy a scoop of their Vanilla Macadamia Nut ice cream as a treat and were not disappointed. We were also given a sticker at the start which gave us 15% off of our purchase in the gift store. They also have a great online site and will ship to you wherever you are and save you room in your luggage as well. If you are in Kauai and are a coffee lover, you should take this tour! It's fun and affordable and great for everyone in the family.

    Worth the stop
    I'm giving this a five for a few reasons. We didn't do the tour of the grounds because we had done Greenwell Farms tour on the big island. We stopped in, tried all of the samples, two of which they had just roasted the night before and the morning of. There are fun photo ops like the big cup. The store is fun, a little pricey, but you can get a few things for under $10. I bought a 24 oz. bag of their medium roast beans at Costco in Lihue for $22.99. I really like this coffee! I am usually a dark roast drinker but I was surprised at how much I liked it. See my review on Greenwell on the big island...fantastic place!

Used to come here once a year every Christmas when visiting family in Kauai. However, This time the workers were kind of rude- I came for a second taster cup of coffee and the attendant was just chatting away and seemed to enjoy making me wait.

She barely filled my small cup either- before you could fill your own cup and the cups were bigger.
I heard her say " Our normal customers are coming later" ... how rude! ... overall, the visit was unenjoyable and it's sad to see that spot become so rude. Lots of other things to do in Kauai.

Well, we were excited about the coffee company as we love our coffee! We entered to find it incredibly crowded. We got a sample of coffee, but the older man who was filling the carafe's was short with people and seemed overwhelmed. We went into the small building where there is a counter to get ice cream and see the antique coffee grinders. My husband and myself were the only ones in there at this time. We waited at the ice cream counter for at least 5 minutes while there were at least 5 ppl working behind it and could clearly see us. No one greeted us, but 2 of them put on sweaters and left walking right past us with no greeting or acknowledgement. An older woman was taking a carafe out and finally greeted us with "someone will be right with you". She came back and served us, she was very informal but got us the ice cream. It was very good on a rainy day. No tours due to rain. Best part was on departure the flowering trees outside have hundreds of colorful spiders in large webs right above your head and in your face if you get too close! Did not see them till it was in my face! That was creepy, but awesome!

We did the "Coffee on the Brain" hour long tour. We were hesitant at first, based on mixed reviews that we saw online, but I am SO GLAD that we did. Lisa was our tour guide and she gave us great information about growing and roasting coffee and made us two great samples using the beans. The guided tour was definitely geared more towards adults or older teens, but we got much more out of our experience at the farm than a self-guided walking tour alone. There was also a small gift shop and a coffee shop that we purchased from.

What a fun experience! We try to find things a bit off the usual when we travel and this fit the bill. Our guide Genny has an enthusiasm and love for the company, the experience and her home island that radiates out from her. Her laugh is AWESOME and down right infectious. Hands down this experience was one of the best tourist bargains on the island and we would do it again in a heart beat! We came home with ALOT of Kauai coffee!

Kauai Coffee Company is a great add-on for a day spent exploring Waimea and the Waimea Canyon. You can spend 15 minutes here checking out the small museum and gift shop, or you can do a leisurely coffee tasing on the deck and wander around the grounds to learn about the Kauai Coffee Company's production process. There is also a small snack bar with drinks and sweet treats. The coffee is delicious. We had a great time, learned a lot and found this spot to be a lovely background for photographs.

The “Coffee on the Brain” tour at the Kauai Coffee Company with Jenny at the helm was an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours on Kauai. The Kauai Coffee Estate is the largest coffee farm in the U.S. and has more than four million coffee bushes under cultivation. Under the patio sun shade, Jenny demonstrated the best ways to brew a great cup of coffee and how to grind and store our coffee. Happily we got to drink the brew! Then we walked around the grounds and learned how the coffee is grown, harvested and roasted on site. Jenny was a very knowledge guide and answered a myriad of questions. After the tour, we relaxed on the lanai and tasted some exceptional coffee and later claimed our tour discount on a couple of pounds to take home.

We did not plan to go here, but we passed it while listening to an audio travel guide and it was recommended. We got there just in time - we needed a pick me up (coffee) and it was time for lunch. They served us a great tuna fish sandwich with chips and an iced coffee. It really hit the spot. Then we did the self-guided tour, enjoyed the gift shop, and purchased a few too many bags of delicious smelling coffee! They allow you to taste all you want coffee samples and this coffee is really good. I wanted to go back the next day!

Did you know Kauai Coffee is the largest coffee grower in the US? They have 4 million coffee trees.
You can learn the history of the Kauai coffee plantation at their shop and museum in Kalaheo. You can also taste test their coffees.
They provide an informative casual walk through the coffee plantation process. It's a nice place to visit.

Very nice self guided tour. Guided tour was sold out (and limited because of pandemic). Was able to talk with a coffee roaster who was roasting coffee at the time. She was very helpful by giving us lots of information on how coffee is grown, harvested, classified, roasted, and tasted. Nice gift shop. Coffee can be tasted and ordered by the cup - but the line was too long. Not much in the museum.

A great way to taste the different flavors without buying a bag. Daily they have at least six varieties of coffee for you to try and the cafe can hook you up with fancy coffee. We took the self-guided tour of the land and there are signs explaining the process along the way. They do have guided tours available. Was a nice stop on our road trip on the island.
