Our concierge told us about this hidden gem in Kona. Honestly, when you drive up, you'll most certainly think you are in the wrong place. It feels a bit like an illegal transaction, but it's not, I promise! When you find the passionate, laid back...More
Emmerich and Angelica were super. We loved listening to him passionately explain the science of coffee. We left the place feeling like family. We love the coffee and you will not find a better deal. But the experience was priceless!!
