Life just perked up for coffee lovers who truly care about what’s in their cup and are curious about where it comes from! Pele Plantations, a certified organic Kona coffee farm on the island of Hawaii, now offers free private tours of its working farm every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday mornings. These 90 minute tours are private–designed for individuals, couples or small groups–and are by appointment only. Grown on the volcanic slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa in the North and South Kona Districts of the island of Hawaii (aka the Big Island), Kona coffee is one of the most coveted and costly coffees in the world. Family-owned Pele Plantations, in operation since 1989, specializes only in 100% pure Kona coffee (no blends) and is one of only a handful of farms producing organic Kona beans.
