Fodor's Review

With all the buzz about Kona coffee, it's easy to forget that coffee is produced throughout the rest of the island. The Hilo Coffee Mill is a pleasant reminder of that. In addition to farming its own coffee on-site, the mill has partnered with several small coffee farmers in East Hawaii in an effort to put the region on the world's coffee map. You can sample their efforts, tour the mill, and watch the roasters in action.

Hilo Coffee Mill Review

The Hilo Coffee Mill, located on the North side of Mountain View, keeps getting better. The menu has grown and includes waffles, which I can't get enough of. I was happy to see the lunch menu growing as well. It's still the same great coffee but occasionally I will stop for a smoothie. There really aren't any other good lunch places between Hilo and Volcano. It is definitely worth a stop for coffee or a meal. I really like the fact that you can sit

outside, which is rare on the East side of the Big Island. It's a great place for locals to eat as well as a fun place for tourists to stop and learn more about coffee, as this is an actual working coffee farm.

Local Shop with Aloha Spirit!

This was an impromptu stop on my way back from the Volcano National Park. The outside appearance got my attention but the people inside make the difference! Inside, the shop is very clean, displays are nice and not overly crowded with items. But the people... are so welcoming. It was not very busy at the time I stopped so I chatted with the locals and heard some stories that brighened my day. The aloha spirit is definitely felt in the Hilo Coffee

A Wonderful Experience

I learned so much about coffee. A great place to visit with family and friends. The homemade Portuguese bean soup was the bomb. I've shopped on their website too and am a lifetime customer. Thank you all for the great coffee, wonderful experience and fantastic customer service.
