What you'll do

You'll get an in-depth and personable tour of our farm with our knowledgeable guide and junior master roaster, Mary Grace, who has been with us longest out of our entire team at the farm for about a year now. Our farm is the oldest certified organic coffee farm on the island. We’ll offer you a tasting of some of our coffee while informing you about the history and cultivation process of Kona coffee, interesting plant science and agriculture facts that touch on the fascinating world of flora in Hawaii, as well go over the flavor notes that different stages in roasting that can create. Once finished, we’ll take a walk around our property where you’ll see the coffee trees and learn how coffee is handled and taken through an elaborate set of processes that turns it from a raw and slightly sweet fruit into drinkable coffee. At the end of the tour, you'll get to roast a batch of coffee with Mary Grace and see how it turns from a simple green bean to the complex flavor packed coffee you enjoy. You’ll be working with our vintage and beloved roaster made in the early 1970’s, which is a rare experience.

Tara

I came to Hawaii for the purpose of working on organic farms. What was originally planned as a two-month excursion, has turned into an entire year of working with the oldest certified organic coffee farm on the Big Island of Hawaii. Apart from being an operating farm, we also do farm tours daily, so I've had experience with tourism and showing regular coffee drinkers the process from start to finish; from seed to cup. Now considered the other ‘master roaster’ at the farm where I work, I learned directly and meticulously from the owner.

What's included

Food
Organic, Rainforest-Alliance Fair Trade Certified Coffee, green, for roasting - 1/2Lb of which is free to take home
Drinks
Certified Organic 100% Kona Coffee, brewed for tasting

Where you'll be

You'll ride up into the slopes of Mauna Loa, along a real farm road where a large handful of small family farms are located and learn how Kona coffee is predominantly harvested. You'll get to see our upstairs tasting area, with an incredible view of Kealakekua Bay and the Pacific ocean. After a walk around our 6.1-acre property, you'll be led to the roasting room where you’ll be taught how to roast your own coffee.
