A pretty fun couple hour trip at max. They have a free tour and free coffee samples at the end.

Its a great way to see where that coffee you drink comes from. It also introduced me to "peaberry" coffee, which I had never heard of before.

If you are interested, we made a short video on it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKCpxa8EL-I

Overall its a fun place to visit.

TIP: They mark up their coffee at their gift shop. You can find the same coffee bags much cheaper at other stores in the area...namely ones that begin with Wal and end with Mart. I did pick up a cool t shirt and a bag of coffee that I didnt see at other stores.

Going to the Kauai Coffee Visitor Center and Plantation was a neat 30 minute thing to do on the way to the Waimea Canyon. You can watch them roast the coffee beans, take a walk out in the coffee fields, buy food and have as much free coffee as you want (40 flavors). We are not coffee drinkers, but a neat thing to stop at.

Rent a car and see the Kauai coffee plantation. Plenty of samples to taste so you can pick just the right blend. If you love coffee this is a must see.

This was just a quick stop on our trip back from the canyon, but it was SOO worth it. They have so many free samples that you can taste! They have great ice cream for the kids--that kept ours busy so that I had plenty of time to taste coffee. It was cool to walk around and see the plants and they have a nice gift shop as well. I absolutely recommend this as a stop on your trip. Oh yeah, and try the chocolate macadamia nut coffee!

The tasting room has at least 20 or so types of roasts and flavored coffees served from coffee dispensers w small cups. Powdered creme is available or you can buy a small bit of half n half for about $0.35 enough for 5-6 tastings. The video presentation is about 20-25 minutes and seemed very interesting to me. It features how many trees are on this plantation and how many months it takes to grow the beans and the roasting process, showing how several of the highly specific sorting, washing and shelling machines work and the quality control for brewing. The walking tour is pretty brief and allows you to see how they used to rake and dry the coffee under filtered light on cement pads, see how they transplant seedling trees, how large the coffee trees grow, etc. so depending on if you go at fall you may see the beans ready for harvest or in Spring the flowers on the trees. The gift shop has some soaps, lotions, lip balm, stuffed items and books, candies, trinkets and of course bags of coffee! Some of them were only 10 oz. bags, but reasonable priced, ranging $10.50 to $16 or so for "Poipu Estate" roast I bought. This is an enjoyable visit (<45 minutes) and easy to do on the way to the canyon, as they are open early.
