The tour was $10 and took an hour. We learned so much. The guide was fantastic. Got to taste a lot of great coffee and gained an understanding of Kona coffee and why it is so expensive.

I learned a great deal about coffee, the growth and process. Fantastic atmosphere and great samples. Only real issue is the shop didn’t have much selection of what you just tried. Certainly worth a couple hours and convenient to Kona town. Amazing view too.

If you are looking for a bit of a time killer, check out Hula Daddy. They give you free samples and an inexpensive tour of the facility. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
