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.

We learnt a lot from Lucas. He was very knowledgable and explained everything to us about how the coffee bean is harvested. The views were amazing as we sat and drank our coffee after the tour.
