It’s been just over a year since our family visited Kauai, Hawaii and I’m still working my way through the gorgeous photos. Our family vacation was one of the best with so many adventures. We ziplined over the beautiful hawaiian jungle, snorkeld on the Na Pali Coast, and hula’d at a luau. Among so many other favorite memories made, we saw the most amazing sunsets and swam with turtles in their natural environments. The week went by too quickly and we hope to plan another family visit soon. Visiting the Kauai Coffee Estate was another experience I greatly anticipated because Kauai Coffee Company has always been a favorite brand. Visiting the actual plantation where the beans are grown and processed had been on my bucket list for awhile. During our visit we learned about the plants, the history of the company and drank excessive amounts of coffee. It was a spectacular day.
The warm tropical breeze and the sweet smell of Kauai coffee is heavenly. The estate has several different attractions to see during your visit including a gift shop, cafe with delicious coffee drinks, museum and walking tour. We were there for a couple of hours and were able to see everything while also stopping to enjoy drinks with a view of the coffee plantation.
The coffee samples provide you the opportunity to really try everything, including decaffeinated options. The flavored coffees were my favorite.
The museum shares the natural history of the company along with artifacts like an antique coffee grinder and old coffee cans.
The walking tour truly walks you through the coffee growing process from the ground to your cup.
You’ll see the progression of equipment and how the coffee is manufactured today.
We really do take for granted how easy it is to pour a cup of coffee each morning. The process is quite complicated and learning all the steps was fascinating. After the plants are fully grown, the beans are dried and raked to prevent fermentation.
My daughters were very interested in the plants. My oldest daughter compared them to her failed lima bean experiment and said it would be very sad if an entire crop didn’t grow. The entire experience was a great learning opportunity for her.
We sampled so many different Kauai Coffee varieties while visiting the Kauai Coffee Estate in Hawaii. It’s hard to decide which you’ll enjoy at home so a coffee sampler is a great way to bring a piece of the island flavor back with you. It also makes a great gift!
Over a year later, the Kauai Coffee sampler made a perfect Father’s Day gift for my husband paired with a Big Mouth Inc. Gigantic Coffee Mug so he can try more than just his favorite Kauai Coffee brew every morning and be reminded of our favorite family vacation. Since coming home from Kauai last year he has ordered the coffee monthly to be shipped from Hawaii to brew in our home pot everyday. This mug speaks volumes to his idea of cutting back to just one cup of coffee a day…Kauai Coffee that is!
Our daughters enjoyed watching lizards run through the lush grass and learning about coffee during the tour. They were also very much looking forward to another amazing beach visit after we left the Kauai Coffee Estate.

What a great trip while you were in Hawaii. There are so many coffee brands that come from Hawaii it must be that great weather. I want to go back and this time I will check out the Kauai coffee.
I’ve never been to a coffee plantation, but need to find one as close to me as possible, and go on vacation! This sounds like a wonderful place to visit when you love coffee as much as I do!
This looks like it would be an amazing place to visit! I love me some coffee and I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. I have a friend living in Hawaii, maybe I should hit him up for a place to crash lol
I love Kauai Coffee Plantation! We usually swing by and grab coffee and cream-filled malasadas before hitting the beach! I’m heading back to Kauai next month and this makes me so excited!
Sounds like an amazing trip. I went to the big Hawaiian island this Easter and I went to a coffee plantation there, and although I’m not a coffee fan it was so interesting x
Oh wow, my friend would love this! She’s such a coffee lover. She’ll love to visit the plantation. It sounds like such an amazing trip.
This looks like a fun excursion for all coffee lovers and I have plenty of friends and family who would love this!
My daughter is headed there next spring. I am going to share this post with her, she’s a coffee fan and I think they might like seeing a farm!
Even though I’m not a big coffee drinker, I would love to see how it’s made. I know the coffee from Hawaii is supposed to be particularly good so it would be fun to give it a try.
I went to Hawaii 20 years ago as a kid and I really want to go back as an adult and really do the island right. This place looks like a great place to add to my itinerary.
I have never visited a coffee plantation and it would be nice to do so! There’s plenty to learn and I’m sure I’ll come out with a better appreciation for coffee!
This is an awesome tour! When we were in Hawaii about 8 years ago, we drank a lot of Kauai coffee!!
I would love to visit that! I don’t think I’d ever leave. I have a mad, mad love for coffee, and Hawaii definitely has some of the world’s best!
I love that coffee mug! I recently gave up coffee during the week and only have it one day during the weekend. As much as I love it, I think it messes up my body’s natural rhythm. I would enjoy visiting t a coffee plantation though. Looks like you all had a wonderful time.
How awesome. I love the green building. Very cool. I think this would be an interesting tour to take, and lots to learn I’m sure!
