Stopped in to the store which has free tasting of their coffee. While we were there took the walking tour, also free, of the plantation. Both interesting and educational. Also had knick-knacks for sale at the store.

Very interesting tour and great coffee. Like most coffee plantations in Kona, it has a beautiful location and great products to choose from in gift shop.

This is off the beaten path but worth the visit. They offer free tours of their processing facility, and there is a charge if you want to take the jeep tour of the farm itself. The store offers free samples of their coffees and teas,...More

We took a private tour of this coffee plantation, and it was amazing. It was also educational. This is one of the best things we did while on the Big Island.

You can take a free tour of the equipment that processed coffee, and for $10 more, you can take an additional short self-guided tour of the plantation.

If the ship visits Kona its just a short Uber or Taxi ride. If the Ship visits Hilo there are plenty of neat things to see on that side of the island that you should see. Although the coffee plantation is fun I am not sure I... More

The plantation is cute but definitely not worth the price of a cap. The tour is short and they do not take you into the coffee fields. You would be spending your money to get to the gift shop and you can buy coffee almost... More

Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation's ownership changed in April of 2017. The previous owner has no connection to the farm. Mountain Thunder coffee is available at the farm and online at Mountain Thunder's website.
