For Services and Resources in French Polynesia

The Tahiti Cruisers Guide is brought to you by Julien Desmont from Xperimental and Chuck Houlihan from Jacaranda. Starting as an idea based on the very successful Panama City Cruisers guide, it has evolved into 200+ pages of information on vendors and services throughout French Polynesia. In January 2018, we added GPS coordinates and links to Google Maps to assist in locating businesses.

Downloading the guide and GPS map coordinates will facilitate using the guide offline. The coordinates will work for either (best for Papeete) or Google Maps.

Especially thankful to John (SV Mary Ann II) and Steve (SV Ocean Star) for their huge effort in supplying a vast amount of information for the guide.

The guide is a community effort. Updates and new additions are greatly appreciated. If you find the guide useful or find something that needs updating please drop us a note at tahiticruisersguide (AT)

Island: Tahiti

Finding decent coffee beans in FP can be a hit or miss. The following stores have been known to carry coffee beans

Maxi - Starbucks beans (Flavored - Vanilla, Hazelnut, etc). They do have large tins of ground Folgers coffee.

Careefour Papeete - stocks coffee beans

Champion - Papeete usually stocks coffee and some beans

Polynesian Trading Company (Kirkland Products) used to carry coffee beans (1-19) 

Champion - Mo'orea (Viarae) often has coffee beans.

Super U Mo'orea Cooks Bay also stocks coffee beans but often sells out

But like anything if you see it buy it!

Let me know if you find other stores that carry coffee beans and I will add them here
