They have several types of the Kona coffee and can taste the difference of these. Also coffee icecream is excellent.

We were in Holuakoa on a Monday; all the art galleries were closed! As we left we saw that UCC was open and offering free coffee tasting! We had a great 1/2 hour tour lots of information from a very knowledgeable guide.
