The first time we were on the big Island, our hotel concierge told us to take the free Kona coffee tours. But to save half on the purchase you need to have a delightfully, quirky shop stop with Emmerich at the Captain Cook Trading Company....More

If you like Kona coffee, you are doing yourself a disservice unless you call Emmerich Grosch, the proprietor of Captain Cook Trading Company. Read through the reviews and believe the glowing opinions of his customers. My wife and I were in Hawaii in September. Luckily...More

Our tour guide suggested Captain Cooks Trading as the best and fairly priced Kona coffee on the island. I called ahead to make sure they are open. He's a one man operation. He works out of a small warehouse area so it's no frills. Coffee...More

Wonderful Businessman (Emerich), runs a great equipment supply business for the local agricultural community. He also has coffee and macadamia nuts for sale. Don't be fooled by the look of the location. Drive in and, if nothing else, you will get to learn a little...More

I have done business and known Emmerich for almost 15 years now. He is truly a man of many talents, with a spirit that calmly takes over your presence as he gleefully shows you his latest invention. It may be a new press or a...More

This out of the way spot will not only provide you with great Kona coffee at a great price, but an experience only the owner can provide. . . worth all the effort to find.
