What do our customers say about Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation?

Just wanted to say that my daughter was just on a holiday in Hawaii and she went to your plantation - upon my request (actually I told her she HAD to), and bring me back some of your best in the world, amazing coffee! She got me the Private Reserve as well as the Kona Cream - both which I got when I was there 3 1/2 years ago! Both are just as I remembered them....AMAZING!
Thanks so much for your hard work in making these beautiful products! Mahalo,

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that my family visited your farm on Monday and we had a wonderful time. The tour guide was knowledgeable & my children absolutely loved your animals. Thank you for opening up your business to visitors. We purchased a few bags of premium coffee to take home to family!



My wife, Marcie, and I just did a side-by-side taste test of the Mountain Thunder Private Reserve Vienna Roast and our usual Trader Joe's Smooth and Mellow Blend - a 100% arabica bean American blend. There is absolutely no comparison - the Mountain Thunder is light-years ahead.

In fact, the description on the Trader Joe's sealed nitrogen-flushed can (with no one-way gas valve) more aptly describes Mountain Thunder than the beans it holds:

"... The acidity is light, the flavor is well rounded and fully developed. Never bitter..."

The Trader Joe's coffe tastes completely bitter by comparison to Mountain Thunder and now I know why I never drank it without a lot of flavored half-and-half or milk and sweetener. The Mountain Thunder, on the other hand, is perfect black.
Just so you know, you've forever changed the way we drink coffee. And you can quote me on that. I'd say drinking Mountain Thunder coffee is an indulgence, but it's really just a matter of choosing quality first. Your tour is really an education in what coffee is like at its very best.

Thank you for your passionate pursuit of the perfect cup. Mission accomplished!

Kind regards,
Robert Phares

Hello from North Carolina- :o)
I received my first order of Kona peaberry beans from you all. I tried it over the weekend and all I have to say is YUMMMM!!!!! Gosh- was that some of the best coffee I've ever tasted.
Sure do wish I lived closer....... I'd be a regular visitor.
Thanks for such a great coffee. I look forward to future cupfuls!

I want to tell you that I have placed 2 orders with you in the past 3 months. Both times I have received exactly what I wanted and the orders have arrived promptly.
I was born and raised in Hawaii but I am now retired in Florida. I say this because I know what great Kona is supposed to taste like and you have not let me down. I am very impressed with how you handled my first 2 orders and please give a big Mahalo to your staff for growing, roasting, and delivering such an excellent product and service to me.
I assure you that you will always have my business. I only buy the best and your Company is the best.
Kind Regards,

Dear Mountain Thunder,

Hello from the mainland! My name is Reuben; Upon receiving your latest shipment of green (or should I say blue-green) beans, I immediately sliced open a bag to devour its heavy fruit fragrance. I then proceeded to roast several batches of the ever-popular Kona Blend, and a batch of 100%. (Much to the relief of myself and our Kona-loving customers) The freshly brewed aroma is like inhaling an island sunrise. After thorough cupping I am once again impressed by the sweet, clean acidity and uncommonly rich character of your coffee. Yum! I also fully appreciate and support your use of organic and sustainable farming practices. Perhaps it is your responsible agriculture, or your state-of-the-art on-site processing capability, or your precedent-setting altitude atop Mt.-Hualalai, whatever the reason(s), I personally find your coffee to be the most flavorful Kona around.

We have recently returned from a wonderful 10 day trip to your beautiful island. This time we discovered Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation. We enjoyed the presentation and the tour of your facility. Most of all we loved drinking fresh brewed coffee in a wonderful mug.

We now sip Mountain Thunder's coffee at home from Mountain Thunder mugs. Our mugs also hold wonderful memories of your island. We look forward to returning to Kona. Until then we will order coffee as we need it.

Take care and Mahalo,

Rose & George
