This group runs a very interesting tour of historic Kona coffee society often run by Japanese farmers more »
The bread gets 5 stars. Cooked in a traditional outdoor Portuguese stone oven. Great place to learn and see a classic baking process. Parking is easy and there are boards to read and learn more about the area. It's a short 100 yard walk to a great coffee farm as well.
Go on Thursday for the Portuguese bread baking. You won't be sorry! It is delicious. The tour of the Greenwell Store was lovely too. Such a nice place off the beaten path.
