“Best coffee in the world”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We asked our driver if he could take us somewhere with really good coffee and he drove us out to Tanna Coffee Plantation. They grow, harvest, roast, grind, package etc. their own coffee as well as serving it. It was fascinating seeing the green coffee beans and Phil took us out to see a coffee cherry tree as well. Inside we got to watch them roasting beans. There were massive 240L bins of medium beans and dark roasted beans etc. I really don't like coffee (not even a little bit in chocolate cake) so those that know me well will appreciate that it was a big thing for me to enjoy the local culture and order a mocha (with some sugar added). It was actually really smooth and something I could become accustomed to drinking if it were available. Tania drank two flat whites and thought she'd died and gone to heaven. She said it was the best coffee she's ever drunk and she's travelled extensively. She bought a bag of coffee to take home and we were thankful again we'd met Phil.

“Nice for a coffee break between sites.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The woman who served us was lovely, great to stock up on some local coffee beans for a great price! Coffee wasn't all that hot but not needed given the heat of the day anyway!!

“Great coffee in a realistic setting”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We went to the Tanna Coffee factory on a rainy day. There were just a few visitors besides us.
I wasn't expecting much but was blown away by just how good the coffee was. Probably the best coffee I have had.
We found the staff very friendly and helpful when we were choosing which coffee beans to buy.
There were some staff busy packing freshly roasted beans while the roasting machine was preparing the next batch.
There was also a video outlining the process from harvest to packing. Our taxi driver introduced me to the locals also. The old building is the perfect roasting site for the islands coffee.
I think it was well worth the trip out to the factory :)

“Beautiful coffee”

well worth a visit - I wouldn't make a special trip there just to visit Tanna, but definitely worth a stop when you are out visiting other attractions
