Coffee lovers unite for a truly unique experience at Kona Joe Coffee Farm, the world's first trellised coffee farm. Your three-hour adventure begins with a 30-minute scenic ride up to a lush hilltop location with panoramic views over the Kona coast. Meet your Kona Joe guide and embark on a walking tour of the trellises, not unlike systems used by the world's best winemakers. You'll learn the production process for how coffee is grown, processed, roasted, and packaged. The roasting process is where the beans get their aromatic flavors, and you'll have the unique opportunity to roast your own beans in an artisanal Italian-designed drum roaster. Roast your coffee to your liking and leave with a blend of your personal creation. Before departure, savor a variety of coffees in a tasting session and delight in the locally made chocolate confections. Be sure to check out the well-stocked gift shop brimming with mementos and tempting treats. Settle in for the relaxed ride back to port.
