Event description

Description

Visit a Hawaiian Cacao (or Cocoa) Orchard just 15 minutes south of Hilo in Kurtistown, Puna District.

This is a pristine, mature orchard with nearly 2,500 cocoa trees among a working farm of Coffee, Macadamia Nuts, Bananas, Citrus. You can even interact with our small flock of goats.

We will visit the cocoa nursery and cocoa orchard to view how cocoa is grown and where your favorite food, chocolate, comes from!

You will handle fresh cocoa pods, open and taste fresh fruit and pulp you can't taste at home. You will then explore how beans are converted to chocolate and then retreat into a sheltered canopy to for a 5 chocolate flight of various dark and milk chocolates from beans grown on Big Island.

You will also view the fermentory and dryers where fresh beans have their bitterness converted to delicous chocolate flavors.

Appropriate for all ages.

This is a non-improved trail on grassy and moist terrain - please wear closed-toe shoes.

Reservations are required at least the night before at midnight - our cocoa expert prepares only for the amount reserved.

* tour will proceed in wet weather, we have umbrellas.

**You can book private tours for times that fit your schedule. Minimum price is $200 for 1-4 people with $25 per person > 4 people. Call to arrange!
