Four million coffee trees are grown on the Kauai Coffee Company's 3400 acre estate on the south side of Kauai, near Koloa. The estate produces more then 3.5 million pounds of beans a year, which is more then half of Hawaii's total coffee production. The company processes their own coffee using their processing plant in Numila. The Kauai Coffee Company is the largest coffee plantation in the United States and the largest drip-irrigated coffee plantation in the world.

The Kauai Coffee Company Estate was originally the McBryde Sugar Company Plantation, which was one of the first sugar growers in Hawaii. Alexander & Baldwin, owner of Maui Brand Sugar, took over the plantation in 1987 and began growing coffee alongside the sugar cane. In 1995 the sugar cane crop was phased out, and in 1996, for the first time, the amount of coffee harvested on Kauai exceeded the amount of coffee produced by the entire Big Island Kona region. .

The visitor center at the Kauai Coffee Company plantation is open seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There is a short walking tour at the plantation, and at the visitor center you can view videos and learn all about coffee production and the history of the Kauai Coffee Company.

The Kauai Coffee Company is located about 17 miles from the Lihue Airport on the southwest side of Kauai, between Poipu and Hanapepe, near Koloa and the Port Allen Small Boat Harbor. Take highway 50 to highway 540 and follow the signs to the visitors center.
