Into oza kuyenza

Aloha and Welcome as we gather around the information table at Sharkey's 100-year old farmhouse in the historic plantation village of Papaikou. Sample our freshly brewed 100% Hawaiian coffee or cacao tea, grown right here on the farm. From there we begin an easy walk through our orchards where you'll learn about Hawaiian coffee growth and production. Interwoven the coffee are rows of cacao trees. Depending on the time of year, you can usually see tiny flowers and large, multi-colored pods hanging from trunks and branches. Long, heavy vanilla vines grow up the cacao trees, nature's perfect trellis! We'll show you how each vanilla orchid is delicately hand-pollinated to produce long "hands" of vanilla beans. We'll then proceed to the "Slab" where the pods are 'cracked' before the fermentation process. Next we move into the greenhouse where flats of newly planted seedlings just beginning their journey grow alongside large screens filled with coffee and cacao beans slowly drying to perfection. Finally we'll move into our certified Chocolate Kitchen where the Magic happens! Who wants a taste? Free samples!

Great experience at a small family farm. We explored and learned about the plants, enjoyed incredible coffee, learned about making coffee and then made chocolate to take home. Great learning experience and opportunity to support local farmers. After the tour, check out the farmers market for food and shopping, take a swim and look for turtles at Richardson Beach and head over to Volcano Park for a full day of exploration.

This was a really great experience. We learned so much about cacao and coffee and how it all happens. The tasting of the coffee and the cacao in its different stages was so interesting! And it was so fun to make our own chocolate! Alex’ey was a great guide and teacher!
