We went to explore for the perfect cup of Kona coffee and discovered Kona Joe's Coffee. This is a picturesque location with coffee plants all around, a tour, friendly staff and great gift shop and cafe. You can do as much or as little as you want here from just a sample of their coffees, or go on a tour... More

When we went to the Big Island, a coffee tour was a must. We were recommended to visit Kona Joes. It was a wonderful visit. The employees were very knowledgable, helpful, and nice. We did the free walking tour, but still had our coffee questions answered in the tasting room and gift shop. The view overlooking the ocean was beautiful!... More

I first went to Kona Joe's in 2013 and bought coffee and had it shipped home. It only lasted about 8 months and we were out. We said that in 2014 we were going back to Hawaii and that we were going back to visit Kona Joe's coffee again, and we did! It was great to go back and visit... More

We had a terrific tour and tour guide from China. We asked lots of questions. He was very knowledgeable. The sales lady in the shop was very helpful and kind. The Chocolate coffee beans are addicting, so we are going back before we fly out.

My husband and I toured Kona Joe's the last week of April 2014. We didn't know if we wanted to do a free tour at another plantation or this tour that costs $15/person. DEFINITELY do this tour! We got to the plantation and saw another large tour had just started. We paid the tour fee and waited for our guide.... More

We visited Kona Joe's as part of a tour during our Norwegian cruise. The setting is breathtaking with views that are stunning. The tour is about 30 minutes and is led by energetic guides who work at the company. I'm a coffee fanatic and not only learned quite a bit but also enjoyed tasting their harvest. The chocolate covered coffee... More

We really enjoyed our tour of Kona Joes, our coffee tasting, and will use our new mugs for years. It was a very interesting thing to see the trellised coffee on the hillside, and the tour guide gave a fascinating presentation about the coffee from the cherries on the tree to the finished coffee in the cup!
