After researching all the plantation tours on the big island, we picked this one. We are glad we did. This was an amazing time. We drove up to the front, parked, walked up and immediately met owners Kai and Cocoa. Oh yes we also met Karen and her husband as well. They both made us feel so welcomed. The tour... More

Aloha Rob Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We told Kai and Cocoa that they got a review and they wagged and woofed. They will get a special treat for dinner. We enjoyed talking to you and look forward to your next visit. Mahalo Karen More

The staff were great, very welcoming, and they give you free coffee samples which is amazing! I wasn't crazy about the tour, but that could just be me because I'm not a huge coffee drinker, and wasn't too interested in the process. If you like that sort of thing, they're very knowledgeable though!

The tour guide, Theresa (I think), made the visit so lovely! She was very knowledgable and seemed to really love her job! The owner was also there when we visited, perhaps because there was a film shoot for a travel program going on. Despite needing to attend to them, he chatted with all of us normal people too! Very nice.... More

Aloha Lindsey Thank you for your review. My husband loved it. He told me to tell you that he loved talking to you "niormal people" a lot more than the video crew. One of the best things about our job is all of the really nice people who visit our farm and chat with us. Please come back again. Mahalo... More

The view is amazing. Everyone is so inviting and welcoming. Excellent tour and the tour guides are awesome. The tour is free but the guides do such an excellent job you would want to tip them. This is definitely something you'd want to add to your todo list. We love hula daddy

If you stop to learn about Kona coffee, I can't recommend this place enough. Sure, they are selling $30+ bags of coffee, but the staff is friendly, the atmosphere is laid-back, and you get to tour the grounds and roasting room. I was thrilled with the experience.

This place was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel. This place is a labor of love for two rat race escapees. They turned a nondescript house and hillside (with a breath taking ocean view) into an organic/green business that grows Kona coffee. The owner and his dogs welcome you very warmly to his slice of paradise. The... More
