This is the grinding factory and the front door for the coffee grown on Tanna island. The big airy building is fan cooled and you can buy other local produce like hand creams and artists works. The main attraction is the cafe and the grinding area that you can look around to see how coffee goes from beans to heaven.... More

On a stopover during a cruise we visited Tanna Coffee Factory. We were shown the complete coffee making process from raw beans to roasted and ground coffee. Very interesting. We then tasted the finished product and it was every bit as good as we expected it to be. We bought some to bring back to Australia with us and are... More

I just visited the new Tanna Coffee Factory at Mele Road where I was graciously greeted in true island style by the wonderful Robert Koapa. A visit here during your stay in Vanuatu is not to be missed as it is not only informative, and insightful, a place where you learn the secrets of the humble bean, but also a... More

This new development is run by Terry Adlington - the owner of Tanna Coffee , one of Vanuatus major exports. You can watch roasting, enjoy freshly roasted coffee or chocolate made from local cacao beans! Nice cakes, friendly faces, local artists, and ever expanding facilities - definitely a stop over!

For coffee lovers this place is a must if only to see coffee in all its forms, raw, roasted and ground. The presenter Robert, a coffee grower himself from Tanna Island is informative and engaging. Fluent in English, French, Japanese and his own dialect he is a gem. He answers all questions about the product with a ready knowledge. We've... More

We had a bit of trouble finding this place, as it has moved and is not where it was originally marked on the map. It is now located next to the golf coarse. It was however worth the effort to find it. Upon our arrival we were shown how all the coffee is picked, roasted and ground as well as... More

This is a low key visit, the place it's self is a bit hard to find, we were made welcome and given a short informative tour of the roasting process. The coffee shop looked nice but we just bought a packet of beans and then had a look at the nut oils etc they also sell. I bought a couple... More

A must place to visit when in port Vila. Make it a stop when negotiating with a taxi driver. Friendly people great iced coffee & you can also support the locals, by buying coffee to bring back home or a piece of artwork or skin products👍. Well worth it. Check out the website if in doubt 🙂

Awesome coffee, food looked great but we didn't eat. It was a bit hard to keep our toddler inside and it is on a main road but we find that wherever we travel it can be hard to keep our toddler inside. Tanna coffee is definitely worth a visit.
