Probably my favorite attraction in Hawaii. Just minutes away from Haleiwa. Free coffee and chocolate samples. Freshest tasting coffee on the island. You get a mini tour of the coffee plants and drying process. You also see them roasting and la king the beans. Heaven for any coffee aficionado!

Very friendly, coffee and chocolate free samples as much as you wanted. Very interesting and the owner William was happy to have you and teach you all about the coffee and chocolate beans. Iwas so exexcited to get my mom and myself some very rare coffee that has beaten out Kona and a bunch of other coffees. Love being able to get truly unique gifts. The rare coffee was Ka'u $30 for an 8 oz bag. Also got really cool soap with funny saying for my brother who's going to be a lawyer. Great store next to the North Shore Soap Company to great finds!

My wife's family is from Hawaii, and we were on Oahu for a family reunion. We found this place mostly by accident, but it was a gem of a place. The free samples are amazing, and the people are all extremely helpful. The coffee was so good that I bought some as a wedding present. The prices are not cheap, but the quality of the coffee is amazing. And the other stuff you can buy there has a fun, slightly campy feel.

And as someone else said: the service is great and gave us a tour of everything.

Between it and the handmade soap place also in the old sugar mill, it's worth the drive.

It is a small local place, but all the workers encourage you to sample their products. They are more than willing to answer questions, give you background on their coffee and chocolate, and are just helpful in general. We will definitely be back!

Having seen a short description of the old sugar mill now a coffee mill in a list of things to do on Oahu, we decided to give it a try on a day we were visiting the Dole Plantation which is 'nearby'. While the sign directing us to Wailalua was misleading and after driving through a neighborhood that we knew was probably not where we were going, we finally located the coffee mill. It was a very interesting place, we learned some things about coffee we did not know. Brought home some very good Wailalua Coffee, even though it was a little on the expensive side, it is very good! If you are interested in coffee it is a very good place to visit.
