My family and I visited 4 coffee plantations. This was the best tour. They were friendly and the coffee tasted the best as well. Beautiful drive to the property. Good way to spend an hour to 1.5 hours.

This was a very informative and fun tour. The coffee is yummy, the staff very friendly, and watching the video from when Dirty Jobs was there was both entertaining and enlightening. Our 10-year-old daughter enjoyed it as much as my husband and I did.

We were added to a tour group of a dozen or so. Their guide was knowledgeable of the small shows plant. 10 min but fun. The sample coffee was good. The videos shown are entertaining. Great way to take a break from driving or being in the water.

What was almost more interesting than the coffer were the fruit trees on site. Huge avocado tree with giant avocados.

This free tour is very informative. The staff is very friendly and the free samples appreciated. Our party enjoyed the plantation cats, dogs and vocal rooster roaming about. I recommend this to any coffee lover visiting Kona.

The Mrs and I took her mother here. This was her first time at a coffee plantation and she really enjoyed it.

They give you a great education on Kona Coffee and why it is the best coffee. We got to meet the head roaster and watch how they roast the coffee.

I'm wasn't a coffee drinker until I tasted their coffee and now that is the only coffee I will buy. I know that some of the other reviewers have mentioned that their coffee is pricey here, but it is worth every penny.

We'll worth the visit.
