Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Located on 24 beautiful acres in Mountain View, midway between Hilo and Volcanoes National Park, stands our farm, roasting building and retail sales facility. Come take a full tour of the farm (aprox. 1.5 Hours) or a mini tour (aprox. 20 Minutes) in our roasting room. Either way, it's fun for the whole family and you'll learn a lot about coffee, farming and even a little history. Kids won't even know they're learning because it's so much fun. Before or after your tour, be sure and enjoy a fresh light meal, using locally grown fruits and vegetables. We have one of the best Portuguese Bean soups around. Our hours are: Tuesday: 8:00am - 4:30pm Thursday, Friday, Saturday 8:00am - 2:00pm Sunday, Monday, Wednesday CLOSED If cruise ships are in port we will also be open on those days, until 4:30pm!. If you're here on a Saturday, be sure and visit our small farmers' market with big aloha, where you'll find some real treasures, great produce, a wonderful breakfast and some great local music. It truly is Mountain View's Favorite Gathering Place. Every Saturday from 9:00am until 2:00pm. We'd love to meet you!

“Fantastic Start to our day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

On day 3 of our stay in HIlo we started o9ut heading towards Volcano National Park.
Our first stop was was this wonderful Coffee Mill.
We were greeted by Dana who gave us samples of some of the coffee, explained the differences of the roasting and even got me a NON coffee drinker to try and actually like some coffee.
The coffee milkshake is wonderful!!!!! She then took us over and gave us the coffee tour that tells from start to finish of how they grow and make their coffee.
This is a must stop and enjoy for anyone in the area they really make you feel welcome
Wonderful staff Mahalo nui loa

“Great experience. Phantastic explanations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

We have been today in Hilo Coffee Mill. A really extraordinary experience: go there! There was a wonderful lady who took a lot of time to show us the process of coffee production. She just loves her Coffee Mill and we learnt a lot about good and bad coffee. The location is interesting, you can taste different kinds of coffee and they have great sweets. Absolutely worth it!!

Very friendly staff with a great personal free tour. Very easy accessibility. Right in the roasting with all the wonderful smells, but pricey products.
