  • We were in search of a typical coffee farm factory tour and we found so much more! Through interpretative talks brought by people well either lived the experience or were very passionate about communicating the story, we found ourselves living back in the early 20th century as Japanese immigrants, former "indentured servants" trying to survive producing a new crop in a new place that they called home. With true innovation using the experiences they brought from Japan they succeeded in developing a coffee with few peers. As a mainland Japanese American visiting with my parents who were contemporaries of the children of the families it helped me to appreciate the experiences my parents and grandparents faced as we found that so much of the Japanese culture that came to Hawaii was found similarly on the mainland though with a different backdrop, a different context. It was neat to to see how coffee is produced asset a base level and the amount of care and labor it takes to produce a good crop. All the people there genuinely and deeply cared about what they were sharing and that made all the difference I the world in drawing us, even my teenage kids, into the story. This place gets an a++++. It also helps that there is free kona coffee in the process.
  • The workers put a lot of effort into sharing all about how the family farms existed an operated. Very informative and educational. The entrance fees go to a good cause. Nothing conveys history like living history.
  • A small glimpse of a 100 year old family owned coffee farm. What a humbling but gratifying life commitment.
  • The history interpreters are very knowledgeable. They take their time and explain everything to you. It is authentic; the interpreters are either of Japanese descent or Japanese (either greencard or immigrant). The place gives you a good vibe of the early 20th centure and the development through to the mid 1940s. Everything is close by and the self-guided tour takes (excluding the history interpreters) about 30 minutes. There are lots and lots of free-running chicken. Don’t feed or touch. Oranges and Macademia can be picked and you can eat it. It’s free, but there is a donation box; be fair and consider what the fruits/nuts would cost at a store. The entrance has free coffee and tea samples which are nice. Only bummer are the openning hours. Unless you are there right after they open, you are guaranteed to walk in the brightest/hotest sun. Take sun protection!
  • Very homely tour of life on a coffee farm in the early 20th century. The staff was amazingly kind and loved answering questions.
