Kona is coffee country, and at Kona Joe's Coffee they have adapted methods used by the world's finest wine producers to cultivate their award winning trellised coffee. Their trees have actually been trained to grow like grapevines, exposing more beans to direct sunlight. You’ll see how coffee is processed and sample the uniquely brewed end product for yourself.
Your next stop provides an opportunity to appreciate another delicious bean – cacao. At the Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory, learn about the processing of chocolate, made from the fruit of trees grown on the property. And yes – tastes of this heavenly treat will be available here too.
