We offer Kona’s most complete, fully guided plantation tour experience. The tour is an information packed, 30 minute walking tour complete with visiting our dry mill, roasting and packing room, chocolate room, and up close look at coffee trees, cherries, parchment, and even possibly blooms!Kona Joe Coffee is a fully operative coffee farm completing everything from planting and growing, to wet milling, dry milling, roasting, packing, retail, and even making coffee drinks.You can also experience coffee and chocolate sampling in our artist inspired showroom. There are four types of coffee sampling and two types of chocolate sampling daily.Need a latte or cappuccino? We have a full service espresso bar located on our lanai with 270 degree views of the beautiful Kona CoastTour reservations are welcomed but not required. Visiting from a cruise ship?

“The perfect cup of Joe..Kona style”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We went to explore for the perfect cup of Kona coffee and discovered Kona Joe's Coffee. This is a picturesque location with coffee plants all around, a tour, friendly staff and great gift shop and cafe.
You can do as much or as little as you want here from just a sample of their coffees, or go on a tour and learn more about their special growing process or just grab a snack and sit in their patio and soak in the view. We bought coffee, ordered more and got a special coffee rub for a future dinner!

“Amazing Coffee!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

When we went to the Big Island, a coffee tour was a must. We were recommended to visit Kona Joes. It was a wonderful visit. The employees were very knowledgable, helpful, and nice. We did the free walking tour, but still had our coffee questions answered in the tasting room and gift shop. The view overlooking the ocean was beautiful! This was a great stop and am already ordering more coffee through their website.

“The Best Coffee!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I first went to Kona Joe's in 2013 and bought coffee and had it shipped home. It only lasted about 8 months and we were out. We said that in 2014 we were going back to Hawaii and that we were going back to visit Kona Joe's coffee again, and we did! It was great to go back and visit again. The staff is so nice and very helpful. We love the coffee and visiting the beautiful plantation. This is a must see!

We had a terrific tour and tour guide from China. We asked lots of questions. He was very knowledgeable. The sales lady in the shop was very helpful and kind. The Chocolate coffee beans are addicting, so we are going back before we fly out.
