With this dedication to quality, you can be sure to enjoy some of the best coffee in the world. Why not join our coffee tour of Mountain Thunder?
The History of Mountain Thunder
Mountain Thunder was established over 15 years ago on the slopes of the Hualalai volcano. The farm is situated at an elevation of over 3000 ft. Hawaii is considered an ideal location to grow gourmet coffee. The active volcanoes create the perfect combination, which is:
- An Volcanic Soil
- A Mild Climate
- Light Winds
- Ample Rain During the Summer
- High Elevations
- And the Right Amount of Sunshine
When you combine all these factors you end up with perfect gourmet coffee, just like Mountain Thunder.
When you arrive at the entrance of Mountain Thunder, you will be greeted by ducks, chickens, dogs and if you are lucky enough the resident cat. That is if she isn’t taking a nap somewhere. During the tour, they will cover it all, from how coffee is grown until the moment that you have a steaming cup of coffee in front of you.
Interestingly enough, they are not only expert coffee makers but have also perfected different teas, if coffee is not your thing. Bring your whole family on our best Kona Coffee tour and experience an educational day to remember.
The Best Kona Coffee Tour will not be complete without a taste of the Mountain Thunder Coffee. Mountain Thunder has three roasts that are 100% Kona Coffee:
- American – This is a light roast that is slightly sweeter and higher in caffeine than the other bean roasts.
- Vienna – The medium roast is the most popular roast. It has a nutty, chocolatey and slight cinnamon taste.
- French – The French roast has a slightly bitter taste and stronger aroma; this is usually used in Espressos Aficionados.
After sampling some or all of the Mountain Thunder coffee roasts, you will not want to walk away from this farm without your own supply of coffee. Don’t stress; you can visit the local gift shop to buy your favorite coffee.
