“The smell in the roasting room alone was worth the price”
Visited May 2016
“I went to Kona Joe's in late afternoon after a snorkeling tour. It was cool and hazy; perfect weather to sit on their patio sipping coffee and admiring the view. The tour was fun and very cheap. $15 included the tour, a cup of coffee and a souvenir mug! The smell in the roasting room alone was worth the price. The coffee is pricey, but a great present if you left a coffee addict at home like I did! I also bought some of their coffee spice rub. Can't wait to use it.”

"So nice to come back to Kona Joe. The new staff, mostly young people from South America are friendly. The coffee fabulous.
“We are enjoying a 5 star sunset dinner on the terrace served by Rodrigo, our best and most romantic meal on the island yet!! Totally recommend this off the track experience. It's called Rapa Nui Exclusive Sunset Dinner, and so it is!!”

“Watch for the signs, but don't miss this place! There are plenty of coffee plantations but this one is unique and special. The owners are right there to answer any and all of your questions. Head to the cafe to get coffee and food and sit and look at their plantation that overlooks the Pacific. Great place to wake up or just get a much needed afternoon "pick-me-up.""

“Best coffee, great view, love the staff, must visit. You learn so much about coffee, you will enjoy your cup in a whole new way. Today I joined the coffee tour by Marjorie. I learned a lot and think I will not be able to enjoy Starbucks Coffee anymore from now on. Despite that I was the only participant she explained everything with a lot of enthusiasm. I can totally recommend the $15 investment for the guided tour!”

"Coffee is a wine tasting experience”
Reviewed October 15, 2015
“Easily accessible location. The entire experience is awesome, from the shop to the tasting area, which has an amazing view of the coffee bean "vineyards," valley, and ocean. If the coffee alone wasn't enough to draw you here, the view should be a must see.
Judi attended to us in the shop, and for someone who thought they knew coffee, I got a quick and extensive education. She was awesome, and very personable. There was no pressure to purchase anything. I was inspired to buy more than I had anticipated. Great Christmas gifts or anytime for coffee lovers.”

"We visited Kona Joe coffee as a shore excursion offered by Norwegian Cruise Lines. I love coffee, so I couldn't resist, and I wasn't disappointed. It is an easy tour at which you receive at least two different types of coffee samples, more if you want. It is a well-done and interesting tour, and the aroma of freshly roasted coffee is intoxicating. There is not a lot of walking involved, and it does not take a lot of time to complete the tour."
