Visited Kona Joe's coffee company for a view if their huge roasting machine, separation room, and a great lunch with a tour company overlooking the valley below. Don't forget to sample their coffee and chocolate covered coffee beans in the gift shop before grabbing a signature T-shirt. Great educational experience!

It is difficult to rate a coffee plantation. It has coffee, coffee plants a good well kept shop. A little cafe, an opportunity to walk around and check out the place. There are many options. We did like the shop to purchase our gifts. Well worth a visit to buy your coffee related products. To check out the plantation maybe... More

While visiting Kona (stayed 10 days and never stopped moving), we found this little local coffee plantation/gift shop/coffee shop.

I'm not a coffee drinker at all but you can't go to Kona and not try Kona coffee. We visited Kona Joe's as part of a tour and I was very impressed. The farm is pretty high up and overlooks the ocean: you can see for what seems like forever. The staff are friendly and the coffee samples were DELICIOUS.... More

Stopped by for lunch with visiting relatives. Very good food. The gluten free dairy free pizza was excellent. If you are in a hurry, this may not be the place for you. Compliments to the chef! Will be back!

I love stopping at this place for a cup and taking in the view. It just sets up the perfect day. Please try; it's totally worth it.
