It's a tiny location, but worth the stop. The view is stunning and the coffee is excellent. Be sure to try the tea too! The tour was very informative and our guide was wonderful and she didn't rush you through! Being a smaller operation, you can only get their coffee there and online.

There is nothing more special than having a private tour over looking the award winning Kona Coffee fields! The View is Breathtaking!! The history of the farm and the amazing quality that is placed in each step of its final product is so inspiring! Thank you for placing quality over quantity!! You make "coffee time" a spiritual experience!

This is a friendly, informative tour in a very pleasant setting. You get to taste two kinds of coffee, as well. It was the right amount of information - I remember what I learned. And, I long for more of that incredibly smooth coffee!

Hula Daddy is a good place to stop for an hour to get a taste of coffee growing and processing. It's a small coffee company with a short tour about the coffee plant & roasting. The day I was there, the coffee roaster, Laura, was available - & she can answer a lot of coffee questions. You don't need reservations... More

Wonderful place to tour. The staff there were so nice. They give you fresh coffee prior to your tour. It was a very educational tour if the field and the factory. All free of charge. Gifts are available for purchase.

While it was fun learning about the history of the farm and the process of growing coffee, the true star was the coffee itself. The coffee tasting was exceptional. I would go back just to taste the coffee again - though sadly, buying the coffee, at $60/lb, was not in my budget.

This is a small coffee plantation. If you haven't been to one before (and we hadn't), it will be much smaller than you are expecting. But that's GREAT! There were only 4 of us on the tour, and we get to taste a raw coffee berry. You can sample the coffee, and if they have a coffee you want to... More

This is a great place to stop on your way from Kona to Captain Cook or the Volcano. They have many different coffee and tea samples to try while visiting their gift shop!

We stopped by Hula Daddy on a whim - we were trying to avoid the harshest midday sun and wanted to sample some true Kona coffee, plus, we really liked the name! The view from the back of the shop was incredible! I could have sat there all day and enjoyed. On top of that, the coffee was delicious! The... More
