We had a lovely tour of the plantation and a wonderful tasting session - meeting the owner of the plantation was a real treat and the coffee was just wonderful. Everyone at Hula Daddy's was very gracious.

Highly recommend Hula Daddy coffee plantation for a tour. Our guide did a fantastic job of explaining the Kona coffee growing, harvesting, and roasting process. We were able to walk through the orchard of coffee trees, pick ripe coffee berries, sample Kona coffee, and more.
