We appreciate our wonderful customers and want to share with you what they're saying about Hula Daddy Kona Coffee.
We enjoyed our impromptu tour here as the entire staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable but also realize this won't be for everyone. The main reason is the tour costs $15 per person and the coffee is expensive ($60+ per pound).All of this to say I understand it, and we even bought some coffee - BUT, you can get a free tour at most coffee farms and learn the same, if not more, information on the growing process.So consider this the high end, or maybe highest end, that you will see in Kona and your expectations will be met.Colin M. 3/05/2020
A re;axed, highly informative overview on the success and quality production of the famous KONA COFFEE. Their tour guide and coffee grader gave great insight to the challenges and benefits in starting a coffee plantation. In my view, a tremendous win for the owners in our free enterprise system! The coffee, by the way, is very tasty!Craig Sawtelle 2/20/2020
This turned out to be the perfect small coffee operation to tour. The owner is wonderful and engaging, the tour staff, (Momi especially), are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Their coffee is a very hands-on product, with a very skilled roaster. The pour-over was a perfect way to bring to a close the tour, with a chocolate covered coffee bean as the cherry on top! When I go back to the Big Island in the future, I'll definitely be found back at Hula Daddy's.Douglas Swope 2/17/2020
Had a wonderful tour and tasting with the friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff. The owners were even on site and were happy to help answer questions. It is clear Hula Daddy coffee prioritizes quality over quantity, and their delicious coffee is all worth it. We were especially impressed with how much care they put into harvesting only the top quality beans and being meticulous in the brewing process. Definitely recommend coming here for a tour and/or tasting, no matter if you're a coffee lover or not.Alexandra Colley 2/11/2020
Not the best coffee tour, but very good coffee. A relatively inexpensive tour to taste a bunch of different coffees and see a coffee plantation. Our guide was the most relaxed and low-energy coffee-love I've ever seen, but he was pretty knowledgeable and walked us through the plantation a bit and through the coffee growing and making process. We tried a couple types of coffee in the main room of the nice house the roastery is in that were available to the public, but we also got to try a couple fancier coffees from being on the tour. The coffee to purchase was pretty pricey but it was tasty and clearly high quality.Jeffrey S. 12/30/2019
I booked this tour because it was rated #2 on Yelp (#1 had a religious theme which was definitely not for me). We arrived early and enjoyed some extra coffee and beautiful views. The tour was very informative and gave us a deeper explanation into how they produce such wonderful coffees. I wish I had the vision and ability like the owner, Jeff, to come to the Big Island and develop such a wonderful product. The coffees to buy at the end are a bit pricey, but the best you will ever have.Chad N. 12/09/2019
As a coffee addict and a first timer to the islands, I was excited to try the infamous Kona coffee. My honey and I got there a lil early and we were immediately greeted by Moni (hope I spelled it right). Moni and Laura made us feel right at home while sippin on the delicious coffee. Very relaxing to drink good coffee while catching an amazing ocean view. Moni took us on a tour and she gave us a great overview of the Kona coffee growing process and the Hula Daddy way! We had a great experience and hopefully be able to return again someday. Mahalo!Mark M. 11/16/2019
I am a complete coffee fanatic, I was over the moon to go to a coffee farm. Unfortunately it was raining but that's okay because no one was there. The coffee was delicious, the view was beautiful but I deducted a star because although the staff was nice they hardly said much. Maybe my expectations were different but I at least expected them to offer some history or explain how the whole process works.Brit D. 11/12/2019
Awesome small coffee farm that lives and breathes high quality coffee. The attention paid to the natural growing cycles and limits of the coffee fruit, offering of different varietals and drying methods, and attention to roast quality (and importantly, surprisingly one of the only farms that actually labels the roast date on their beans) are all reasons for coffee aficionados to visit this farm. The owner is an awesome person to talk to and a wealth of knowledge, and the coffee is absolutely delicious. Make sure you stop here coffee lovers!Terence Chan 9/13/2019
Visit and learn all about coffee! Hula Daddy is a small, boutique operation, and offers an up-close look at coffee production. With just a short walk around their shop, we saw the process of growing, harvesting, drying, roasting, and brewing coffee - with a fantastic cupping (tasting) at the end. No reservations needed, we just stopped in and joined the next tour for $10pp. Definitely worth the hour when you need to get away from the salt and sun!tiffanyl206 8/25/2019
This place is pretty special. We just missed the guided tour by 15 minutes, but were still able to go in and sample a couple of coffees and talk to one of their staff. The vista from the office/seating area was beautiful. And we just happened to be there when they were picking the beans right in front of us. Really cool experience. We'll time it better next time!Megan T. 7/21/2019
We had an amazing tour with Meg. She was great and did an awesome job walking us through the whole coffee process.
She was very helpful and knowledgeable. Growing coffee in Hawaii is very different than anywhere else in the world. This was very enlightening.
The coffee is outstanding and has won many awards, samples were delicious
The tour group was small personal.
Thank you Meg!
Great visit to Hula Daddy. Awesome samples of different roasts. I had both the Dark and Medium Roasts. The staff and owner are very friendly and helpful. Beautiful views from the mountain overlooking the coffee farm and down to the ocean. Can't wait to try the coffee I bought at home!Zach Hinson 6/29/2019
