“Great Kona Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

I found out about Buddha's Cup by having it with dessert at dinner at the awesome ULU Ocean Grill at the Four Seasons. It was so fresh and tasty, I wanted to learn more about where it was from.

Its a short drive up from Kailua-Kona, and nice to see the countryside. Lots of other coffee plantations along the way. I kept thinking I had turned onto someone's driveway, but no... Bishop Road is narrow.

Buddha’s Cup is an award winning Single Estate Grown, 100% Kona Coffee. The Kona Coffee beans are hand selected and sun dried.

The tasting was great! I picked up a few bags to take home of my favourites! I was caffeine buzzed, and the little tour around after was good.

Call or email ahead to schedule a tour of the Buddha’s Sanctuary Kona Coffee farm and visit to their Farm Store/Kona Coffee Tasting Room.

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

While we were in Hawaii, I figured that I ought to see how they grow the "real" Kona coffeee - Buddha's cup didn't disappoint! They actually are the nexus for 5 different farms ("estates") with different characteristics. The namesake Buddha's Cup is shade-grown under native Ohia trees, far up the mountain. Really neat, winding, mostly one-lane road up to the farm. Even though we came up on a Sunday, the owner was happy to brew up some fresh sample coffee in French presses, and give a tour showing where they grow, sort and process the beans. This is not a huge operation - Buddha's Cup is just 20 acres.
