“Great way to burn an hour”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Kids and I loved this. Great coffee tasting and tour of coffee plantation, which is free. Then back to office/cafe for superb coffee ice cream and other treats. It really is very pretty up there, if you hire a car this is a must.

“Kona, Hawaii”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Big Island not as fun or interesting as Maui, Oahu, Kaui, but Kona way better than Hilo.

Kona coffee I cannot judge as I do not drink coffee. Like the Macadamia Nut Place . Try macadamia nut cream pie...yum.

We went on a varied bus tour that was really good.

“Informative”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Nice road side stop to learn about the coffee plantation and enjoy some of their great coffee or ice cream. The lady running the information center was pleasant, informative and interesting. Lovely view.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Avoid the other Kona plantations, visit UCC. These folks are amazing, hospitable and just plain amazing. I would trade 10 trips to the other farms to have more time to hang out here! Not commercialized, just real, decent folks...

“Staff amazing us”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We took part in roasting tour booking from web site. Staff is so friendly and told us detail of Kona coffee. Kona coffee grows well due to its unique weather. In this area, it is sunny in the morning. But it is rainy in the afternoon. A difference of weather is better for coffee plantation. First settlers from Japan had found it about a hundred years ago. And only 50 cups of coffee can be made from one Kona coffee tree. I studied Kona coffee beans are very valuable. When we ended roasting, staff filled beans up in the original bags. Label of bags is printed our family taken a photo in the tour.
