We were made to feel really welcome by the manager, we roasted our own beans whilst increasing our coffee knowledge, and learning why Kona Coffee is so special. We drank lots of samples, and tried the macademia nuts and ice cream too, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit,

We've been there twice, and they have nice people. They are generous with samples, and their coffee is the best we have tasted on the island.

We did the tour. They answered all my questions about coffee growing/farming (I asked a lot). We learned a lot, got to roast our own beans (great souvenir), and walked away with some great tasting coffee. Very reasonable price for the experience.

The place looks very small, like a one man operation. It is actually part of the Ueshima Coffee family of coffee farms. It's an international company, but in Kona, it's very hands-on friendly. Free coffee is provided upon arrival. We took the $ 30.00 coffee tour. This included a one on one presentation and questions and answer session with a... More

It was a long winding road to get to the farm, but the view at the coffee farm was breathtaking. Initially we were going for the complimentary tour, but when we got there, we decided to do the $30 per person roast your own coffee tour. It was an excellent choice, we learned so much about coffee trees, the process... More

The Ueshima Coffee Estate is also known as UCC - to me a brand of canned coffee beverages found in Asian markets. It was nice to see their physical location. We didn't book an official tour because we weren't sure if they had English tours, but we walked around, tried out their great peaberry coffee, hung out with the wild... More

We found this place while looking for someplace else and we are so happy we stumbled upon it. The manager at the UCC Coffee plantation gift shop made us feel like V.I.P.s. This is one of the largest coffee companies in Japan and this is their Kona plantation outlet. You can take a tour and have your photo put instantly... More

We did the brewmaster tour and learnt a LOT about Kona coffee! It was fun to roast our own coffee and taste different varieties and the staff was very nice. The only Kona coffee tour I would reccomend!

Contrary to the many very tourist-y coffee farms and shops, the Ueshima Coffee store is a working producer with a low-key store and friendly, helpful people. The store, which on it's sign says it is an "outlet" is hidden away in the Captain Cook area near the bay. We came across it by accident and decided to stop because we... More

Heard that this coffee company would let you make your own coffee. That sounded like a neat activity/souvenir gift item so we took the drive to visit. We missed the building on the first drive by-there is no big touristy sign identifying it like you would see for the Dole Plantation, for example. We asked what was involved with making... More
