We appreciate our wonderful customers and want to share with you what they're saying about Hula Daddy Kona Coffee.
Karen is very knowledgeable of Kona coffee and roasting the beans in small batch. It was fun walking the grounds and capturing the beautiful view from the office balcony. Flavorful coffee ... smooth and perfect for any Time of day. Thank you Karen & Lee ! Cheers to many more successes for you B and your Companies !CCindy L. 3/04/2021
Beautiful location. Took free tour of coffee plantation. Tour guide was super knowledgeable and entertaining. Learned a lot about coffee production with lots of hands on experiences. Samples of coffees were provided along with honey samples. Cute coffee shop on premises. Gift shop is well stocked with many varieties of coffee grown on the estate.Kathleen J. 2/06/2021
Hula Daddy Kona Coffee is a very charming coffee plantation. Laura taught us all about the coffee process and made us several different coffees to try. Karen then came and took us down to the coffee trees and explained the growing process. We spent a wonderful afternoon with Laura and Karen talking about much more then coffee. Highly recommended Hula Daddy Kona Coffee!gary brown 2/04/2021
Coming from mainland America, sometimes it can be hard to get your mind wrapped around it the cost of Kona coffee. If you already love coffee, but you need it a more convincing reason to spend the extra money on beans, you should absolutely try Hula Daddy.
Seriously though, you're going to want to up your coffee game across the board. You got to make sure you're brewing with the right temperature, you want to have the right kind of grinder... Otherwise you're just not going to get the full flavor and you won't taste the difference. I do recommend experiencing higher level of coffee if it's something that you enjoy.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to taste any this time I was on the island because of Covid restrictions but I've had the pleasure of tasting in the past and buy it regularly online. For those extra special days you want to start with some delicious Kona Hula Daddy!
Looked up coffee plantations during our first trip to the Big Island, and Hula Daddy was among the top options. Being located close to the airport, we decided to make this our 2nd detour stop on the way to our hotel. The place is high up on the slope of Mauna Loa, so a fairly steep drive up. There is an interesting looking (and also poisonous) tree out front to help it stand out. It's pretty bare bones inside but they have a nice deck.The tour itself was informative. I'd never been on a coffee tour before, so it was maybe more valuable to me than others. At the end of the tour, everyone got chocolate covered coffee beans to try. Bought a bag of those to take home. Wanted to buy other coffee, however they were out of almost everything and seemingly weren't willing to sell some things; liked what they had in the store well enough but found that weird.Would probably expand my horizons to other coffee plantations first, however this was definitely fun.Justin L. 12/31/2020
Such a fun, detailed, and informative coffee tour! I admit, my visit was pre-COVID times and I'm just getting around to reviewing. The views of the coast and ocean and gorgeous and the coffee is incredibly toasty, full-bodied, and not at all bitter or too acidic. Freshly roasted and extremely high quality. We left with two bags of coffee beans and a bag of chocolate covered espresso beans. Worth the visit. Pricey beans, but also worth it.Liz W. 11/30/2020
Worked with these wonderful people online. I had an issue with my purchase and they worked with me and resolved the issue. They were professional and very courteous. I hope to meet them in person someday. Thank you for working with me and helping resolve a situation that wasn't perfect. I am so glad it worked out well for both of us. Thank you for your sincere kindness and cooperation. These are great people and I hope everyone supports their small business.A Google User 5/22/2020

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!A Google User 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.A Google User 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
