프로그램

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 behind 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!

Fantastic and informative tour! Couldn’t recommend it enough! Tom and Alexey where incredibly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Truly an incredible tour to learn about coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Tasting the fresh chocolate and was eye opening and taking some home even better. Couldn’t recommend this enough!

This was unexpectedly GREAT! Sharkey (Tom) is a retired biology teacher and really gives you as “in depth” of a tour as you could desire. He doesn’t just go through rattling a rehearsed script, rather he talks to you like he really wants you to learn- not just about his farm but about the island, the pests (he calls them “bad guys”), the processes, the life, etc. You can tell he lives and breathes what he’s doing and it’s so so so nice to witness all of the hard work he’s done and what he’s accomplished. He was also a very generous host- helping us make our own chocolates to bring home and offering tastings of anything he grows and makes. 10/10 definitely worth it for a REAL and informative experience

Super fun tour of coffee and cacao farm, beverages and snacks waiting upon arrival, got to make and eat chocolate, beautiful location, hosts were knowledgeable, thoughtful, and gracious, great for kids and adults, everything was awesome, eat and drink coffee and chocolate all day, beautiful flowers all around, very fun chocolate workshop. Highly recommend. Could not have been better.

What a magical experience we've had with Tom (aka Sharky) and Alexey! Both are so kind, knowledgeable and open. We came in with no expectations apart from learning about coffee and chocolate, and we left filled with smiles, beautiful memories, useful and interesting stories and, of course, chocolate!:) We've learned about the process of making coffee, vanilla and chocolate from the very beginning to the end. Alexey walked us through every step and answered all of our questions. We even got to make our own chocolate candies. We walked out with lots of little gifts but most importantly with a new appreciation of the art of making our favorite treats. I can't recommend enough taking this tour if you are on the Big Island and want to have a truly authentic experience!

Loved this experience! Tom and Alexi were amazing hosts and got to learn so much about coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and hawaii and local farming. Took so much chocolate and coffee home. And have a couple new friends we want to visit on the next trip to Hawaii.

We had a great time meeting Ana and Tom and it was awesome to see the orchard. We got to help pollinate vanilla flowers, sample all kinds of products, and make chocolate candies. This was a great experience and we’re so glad we went.
