We visited Kona Joe's as part of our tour with Trafalgar Tours and it was the highlight of our trip! Our tour guide Judy did an excellent job explaining their operation and the coffee is just incredible!! You won't find fresher, better quality coffee anywhere else!! We loved our surprise gift as we were leaving-thanks Judy!!

We took the tour which was only the four in my group since no one else was there. They were very informative and answered all questions we had. After the tour we were led to the store for purchases and the the coffee bar for a coffee drink as part of the tour. This is a small company so personal... More

Beautiful views. Took the tour. Was very informative. Learned alot about how to tell the difference between coffees. Coffee was more expensive than the grocery store, but still had a great time. Judy was great. Must see for coffee lovers.

We stopped by Kona Joe's for a tour of their facility. We were not expecting the gorgeous view from their coffee cabana. It overlooks the serene coffee plantation, and the most scenic view I have ever seen ending with the deep blue ocean. It looks like you are starting at a painting. The coffee is the best I have ever... More

At $27 for 8oz (purchased 2 bags sealed, Med & Dark roast just 4 days ago), opened it today and it didn't have any coffee smell and a lot of the beans were beetle damaged. So disappointed as the free samples at the plantation store tasted really good. Didn't pay attention to look for a roasting date stamp on the... More

Bruno gave us a wonderful tour of the whole coffee making process at Kona Joe. He was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. It was fascinating to learn about their trellis style of growing coffee. Learned a lot, and ended up buying their coffee rub and some coffee. And I don't even drink coffee usually!

We are a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 17, 15 and 12 - we enjoy coffee and were curious about Kona coffee. This tour seemed a bit expensive and it really didn't go anywhere. You do learn a lot about Kona coffee ... But it is not a very hands on tour - which meant our kiddos were... More
