Take a Tree-to-Chocolate Tour

Big IslandFood, Fun & After Dark

Ever wondered what goes into making that magical treat called CHOCOLATE ? Luckily for us, Hawai‘i Island boasts not only COFFEE FARMS but also CHOCOLATE FARMS . While CACAO isn’t endemic to Hawai‘i, the island’s mountain slopes are ideal for harvesting the seeds of this tropical plant.

Located high above Hilo Town, LAVALOHA farms its cacao beans, handpicks and processes them. The result? One hundred percent single origin Hawaiian chocolate.

See the process on the farm’s TREE-TO-CHOCOLATE TOUR with knowledgeable guides who’ll lead you through the cacao orchards, the processing facilities and provide glimpses of the chocolate kitchen to see the entire tree-to-chocolate journey. Visit lavaloha.com for details.
