You can spend the week touring working farms and mills, walking amongst the coffee trees and sharing in the tradition by hand picking the red cherries from the coffee trees and learning firsthand from the farmers how the harvest is turned into the warm cup of coffee that has become world famous for nearly 200 years.

To top off your knowledge of what makes a great cup of coffee, observe the cupping competition where 50 plus entries compete for the title of representing the perfect Kona characteristic judged by an international panel of professional cupping judges conducting side-by-side blind tastings.
