The "Best Kept Secret" HAMAKUA COFFEE TOUR by Hidden Hawaii Adventures
Hamakua Coffee

Share a unique morning with local hosts Netta and Wendell Branco on a tour of their estate coffee farm above Honoka'a on the luscious Hamakua Coast. At their farm you will see the entire process from planting trees, harvesting the coffee "cherry", pulping,drying, husking and custom roasting. You can even roast your own coffee here. You'll walk the fertile field of the coffee farm which is their precious home, see several varieties of coffee trees, dry land taro plants, banana trees and other tropical fruit. But best of all, you will have the opportunity to "talk story" with Netta and Wendell, admire their artifacts and hear about the little known history of coffee on the Hamakua Coast. If you are lucky you may meet Wailani, Netta's mother, a Hawaiian Living Treasure, revered for her Hawaiian Quilts, which have been shown all over America. She was recently commissioned to create a quilt of the governor of Hawaii. Son, Kuaika, makes beautiful koa and mango bowls and what is so unique about this his style of turnings bowls is the thinness and creativity, Netta has created a whole line of Hawaiian crafts. So sit down and relax, talk story, and enjoy a cup of Hamakua coffee on their unique "coffee berry tea" with the warmest hosts you'll ever meet! $35.00/per person, Minimum 2 people
