Kona Coffee

I was back in Kona mid-October and had an opportunity to taste a great Kona Coffee from a small grower, Hula Daddy.  If you are on the Big Island I would recommend stopping by their small shop off the Mamalahoa Hwy in Holualoa.  You can take a small tour, taste some great coffee, see some spectacular views of Kona, and of course buy some awesome coffee to bring home.

From the Honolulu Magazine:

We all know Kona coffee is the best, but choosing a bag from the hundreds of farms on the Big Island can be challenging. So we asked the experts at Web site Coffee Review, which rates coffees on a 100-point scale-similar to the one used for wine-which is tastiest. The editors recommended Hula Daddy Kona Coffee, giving 97 points to the Kona Sweet roast and 92 points to the Mele roast.

Hula Daddy started in 2002 on an 11-acre cow pasture and has since grown to more than 30 acres in Holualoa. Owner Lee Patterson also offers tours of the farm and the coffee-tasting room, even baking cookies for guests. “I grew up on a farm and I like creating something that makes people happy.”
