This is the place you want to stop. The staff here greet you like they have been waiting for you all day. They have great tastes of their farm. The Kona ice cream is amazing! Gabriela helped my little one shell some mac nuts grown on the farm. You will want to hug Peggy before you leave, because she made... More

A small coffee shop at the top of the estate, with excellent coffee drinks. You can stroll down the paved pathways and view the coffee bean plants. It affords a beautiful view of the coastline. It appears to be owned and run by a sweet Japanese family. I ordered an Iced Vanilla Latte. It was delicious, the ice cubes were... More

We had a great time - our guide Jeff was really engaging and we really enjoyed roasting our own coffee which we could take away in personalised bags. The views from the farm were also great - we would highly recommend it.

We had such a wonderful time at UCC! From our very knowledge and caring guide to the plantation to the view and, especially,the experience of roasting our own coffee with personalized labels we enjoyed every minute.

We have been on several coffee tours; this was the best. We took this short tour because we wanted to learn a little more about how coffee is processed. First, we sampled several differ roasts of coffee. I liked all of them. No one in the group actively disliked any of them. Then we went in and had a talk... More

We've been coming back to Kona for over 7 years and UCC coffee became one of our favorites. UCC operates a simple visitor center where you can enjoy samples of the various coffees. You can visit the farm to learn about coffee bean picking, drying and roasting, as well as roast your own bag of coffee. The staff has always... More

Check out estate after roasting your own coffee beans. Acres of coffee plants to see and smell. The guides will tell you in detail what to look for. The flowers only bloom for a few days and are very fragrant

I toured the Konan coffee plantation and farmers explained how this kind of coffee is being farmed. I participated in actual roasting of coffee beans which I prefer Light Roast in ancient roaster that is made more than 100 years ago and grounded then put in a plastic pouch with a photo of our tour group. What an aroma experience.

Awesome coffee and coffee ice cream. Staff is super friendly. I learned a lot about coffee growing. It is next to mauka meadows so I recommend you go to both.
