Get Your Caffeine On at Kauai Coffee Plantation


Mmmm coffee.

I’m a big coffee fan and enjoy a cup every morning… and sometimes around noon…
Okay, okay… and sometimes in the afternoon, too.

Kauai Coffee Plantation offers guided and self-guided tours and plenty of coffee to sample. Boasting a proud 4,000,000+ trees, it’s hard to fathom how it only produces roughly .04% of the world’s coffee.

 

Welcome to Kauai Coffee Plantation!

As big as coconuts? I wish!

“Bath” time for the cherries where they are sorted. The cherries that are ready sink to the bottom.

The Visitor Center Roast (left) was smooth and woke my tired ass up.

Learning of the harvesting process, how and when the beans are ready, roasting… it certainly makes me appreciate my coffee even more! When in Kauai, visit its coffee plantation. You won’t regret it… and you’ll get plenty juiced up from all the coffee samples to tackle the day 🙂
