Our Coffee Farm Tours

header kona coffee 

We are Lyman Kona Coffee Farms. We are a Certified Kona Coffee ESTATE, and only about 60 farms -- out of 800 in Kona -- are in that category. This means that we (quality) control all phases of production of our single farm origin coffee. Both Kona Coffee Council and Kona Coffee Farmers Association (KCC, KCFA) have certified us "from seed to cup."

Based on requests, owner/operator Dr. Hans Eckert, gives 90 minute Coffee Tours at Lyman Kona Coffee Farms ($25.- charge per person; credit cards OK, cash preferred). They usually begin right after breakfast at our BnB Mango Sunset Inn -- at 8:30 or so. We usually need a minimum of four participants and non-guests must inqyire ahead. Group Rates (8+) are available. For Groups, special times can be arranged (fuer Gruppen auch Deutschsprachige Fuehrung). Dr. Eckert is a retired Professor and has perfected the presentation over the last 13 years of being a Coffee Farmer. Of course you can take pictures of anything you want.
