We found this place by accident. We were actually looking for a bird sanctuary that we never found. We got there about 20 before the next tour and it starts with a pair of videos on how they work and both were from TV shows; one was from the Food Network. Our tour was free but there is a more in-depth tour that does charge and takes you into the farm area. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions with some humor. She showed us coffee plants on the side of the road and explained why Mountain Thunder was the best. It had to do with the elevation and being between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. We watched coffee being roasted and man did that smell good. We also got to sample coffee and after one small cup with milk and sugar I tried it just black and found I loved it. I do not drink coffee this way but found that I really loved the coffee taste like that. The tour ended in the gift shop and you can buy several kinds of coffee and candies. Here is the spot where I said what the heck, the prices were from about $22 for a half pound to over $50. I could not believe I did it but I bought two bags of Peaberry as gifts and decided to keep one for myself.
