Come take a full tour of the farm (aprox. 1.5 hours) or a mini tour (aprox. 20 minutes) in our roasting room. Either way, it's fun for the whole family and you'll learn a lot about coffee, farming and even a little history. Kids won't even know they're learning because it's so much fun. Before or after your tour, be sure and enjoy a fresh light meal, using locally grown fruits and vegetables. We have one of the best Portuguese Bean soups around.Open Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri from 8:00am-5:00pm and Sat from 7:00am-4:00pm. Closed on Wednesday and Sunday. If you're here on a Saturday, be sure and visit our small farmers' market with big aloha, where you'll find some real treasures, great produce, a wonderful breakfast and some great local music. It truly is Mountain View's Favorite Gathering Place. Every Saturday from 8:00am until 1:00pm. We'd love to meet you! « less

I wanted to see and learn about coffee, see what it looks like growing, and learn how it is processed. Our guide, Josh Grotkin, took us to Hilo Coffee Mill. Everyone was warm and friendly. The business is owned by women. A young woman gave us a tour and showed us where the coffee is processed. Then we had an... More

We have been today in Hilo Coffee Mill. A really extraordinary experience: go there! There was a wonderful lady who took a lot of time to show us the process of coffee production. She just loves her Coffee Mill and we learnt a lot about good and bad coffee. The location is interesting, you can taste different kinds of coffee... More

Very friendly staff with a great personal free tour. Very easy accessibility. Right in the roasting with all the wonderful smells, but pricey products.

We visited this as part of a cruise ship excursion. Loved the tour. I'm a coffee connoisseur and still learned a few things. And try a frozen drink from the cafe next door.

We dropped by for a look. Not much to see. Coffee was ordinary. Staff were offhand. There are two small buildings. One is a cafe selling coffee and souvenirs, some food. The other seems to be where they do packaging. There are some posters on the wall describing coffee bean processing. Also some samples on display. We had a coffee... More

We stopped for an afternoon beverage - the lady at the counter was helpful and friendly and offered my husband some coffee samples, as well as telling us about the Coffee Mill. He had a frozen mocha and I had a Mango Mania smoothie - both were delicious. Just be on the lookout for it - there is only one... More
