Kona Coffee Farm Tour

Learn the whole story of Kona's most famous export, from bean to cup

Kona coffee — the economic mainstay of Hawaii Island — is recognized as the best in the world, due to the ideal soil, altitude and microclimates in which it is grown. 

It’s also recognized as the most expensive, since every step, from planting to picking, is done by hand even after 200 years. 

You can tour some of the larger coffee farms (reservations are highly recommended) to meet the owners, taste their coffees, and see the different operations that make each farm unique. 

Some will even show you how to roast your own beans, and others still have historic paraphernalia that makes their facility a virtual museum.
