The Plantation Course at Kapalua Bay

The 50th state is the only state in the US that grows its coffee. In a country that is guzzling down more than a third of the world's total supply of coffee, that title is pretty cool in our eyes.

Since 2011, this fourth-generation, family-run farm has invited people to Maui's favorite patch. Located by the field next to Kula's modest roadside kiosk, this infamous attraction is perfect for tourists, local families, and everyone in between.
