We stopped at Kona Joe's on a drive up the coastline and did a little gift shopping. The coffee tasting was so good and the chocolate covered coffee beans are the best!

Getting to the plantation wasn't difficult. The view alone of The Kona region is worth it. But you're treated to walking around and sampling Kona coffee. For a fee they offer a tour of the facility. On the tour they'll explain how the beans go from tree to grounds. A must if you're a coffee lover and want to experience... More
