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