I am so glad i stopped by this place!! I was just driving past after snorkeling and saw a big red sign reading “LAVA TUBE NOW OPEN” and simply had to stop. Ended up having such a lovely time. First you can take the short walk down to the lava tube and then go upstairs into the coffee mill for some free coffee samples and learn about coffee!! All while looking out at a stunning view. Not to mention the air smells like delicious coffee from the coffee farm below! I highly recommend stopping here!!!

This is one of the coffer farms in the area and we'll worth visiting. Good information about coffee, free samples, and you can take a short walk through a lava tube!

Great way to try the different coffee's, the problem is choosing one to buy they were all so nice. Love this place and love the friendly staff and great location.
A short and scenic drive from Kona.]
Cafe on site and gift shop.
Prices ok not too over the top.
Easy Parking and access to centre.
A must if looking for a good coffee or something to take home.

We thought that we had visited the Royal Kona Coffee Mill as part of a Norwegian Cruise Line shore excursion in 2007 but in looking back at old photos, we had really gone to the Kolualua Coffee Company back then.
In any case, this was primarily a retail store for Royal Kona Coffee (which we actually did not like enough to buy any of). There was a very small museum and a lava tube. However, there was not much else to see. There are tours but they were not operating on the day that we visited.

I was looking forward to seeing where my favorite coffee was processed. I was a little disappointed that the processing area was off limits.
The tasting area and small museum was interesting.
The best part was walking through a section of a lava tube.

A coffee break during our ship excursion. As we are not big coffee drinkers we mostly walked around drinking in the sites (so to say)
They had samples of many of their coffees and some teas. Also there is a small store so you can buy some of their wares.

Hubby and I drove to many of the coffee farms and centers along the Kona "coffee route". We sampled. We ate. We schmoozed. We bought coffee to bring home. BUT - of all this one was one of our favorites! The actual working farm with the detailed explanations for visitors was welcome. A very ample store with fair pricing also was available. We loved the variety of free samples and that snagged us to buy a bunch, too! The staff was helpful but not pushy. All in all a great time! And there is a great selection for tea lovers, too! Also a museum is free for visitors.

Friendly and super helpful staff. We drank coffee and split a rum cake on their patio. Short film was very informative.

It's hard to know what this place was like pre-covid. We stopped by to get some 100% Kona coffee. On that front, the visit was a complete success. The kind lady let us have samples that made the follow-on sale guaranteed. They had options for small and large bags, both of which ended up being priced quite a bit lower than other options on the island. The 'museum' side of things, however, was quite small. A lot of what was previously tour areas were still closed, limiting the educational side of the visit. Still, if you just want the coffee, this is an excellent option.
