      Re: Kona Hawaii

      We found there were a lot of plantations around, but not all of them seem to want visitors.
      The ones we visited were:
      Greenwell Farms
      Kona Blue Sky
      Mountain Thunder

      Basically, we ended up at these ones because they seem geared to the tourist thing. The coffee was OK from all places, but none of them seemed to be particularly artful when it came to roasting.
      One place we went (cant recall the name) was roasting whilst we were there and they said "We put the beans in for x minutes at x temperature and that is our Full City roast".
      I asked if they had roast profiles and gave an example of what I meant and they just shook their heads.
      Most of the Kona coffee I had over there was brewed (drip filter).
      It was OK, but nowhere near being worth what they charge for it.

      I enjoyed visiting the farms though!

      Do a Google on Kona coffee plantation tours. Youll get some useful info (and some sorely out of date infor too!).

      Brett.

        Hi sfallon9

        Kim & Lewis Johnson from Long Mountain (www.longmountainkona.com) are really nice people and the coffee is good. I dont know anything about pricing or how they operate regarding visits etc.
