This coffee area has one of the best views on the island. You sit outdoors and look down the coffee trees to the golf course and the ocean. Always see the boat "traffic" as surreal. A cup of heaven in Kona.

This was a big farm and was pricey. We did not take the $15 tour. Husband had a mocha, and it was "okay". It was cool to see how they treated the coffee trees like a vinyard.
