    hrs Estimate Duration

Enjoy tastings of two classic Hawaiian products – coffee and chocolate – and see how both are produced to maximize their unique flavors. At Kona Joe Coffee, you will learn about the patented cultivation process that allows the trellised Arabica coffee trees to grow upright like grapevines, which ensures uniform sun exposure. The result is a superior organic coffee bean with an enhanced taste and body, as you will discover by sampling a fresh-brewed cup. You will be treated to another sampling at the Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory, the first plantation in the state to grow and process 100% Hawaiian cacao chocolate. While touring the orchards, you will see how the cacao is nurtured and then witness the various steps of production in the factory. A tasting follows, during which you might sample delectable plumeria-shaped pieces of chocolate, bite-size cacao nibs and dark criollo chocolate with a complex earthy character. The on-site chocolate shop may be hard to resist.
