Blue Hawaiian Helicopters Partners with Ka’u Coffee Mill to Feature Craters & Coffee Tour

Combo Tour Offers Guests Exclusive, Multi-Sensory Big Island Experience

Hilo, Hawaii (February 19, 2019) – Hawaii’s air-tour leader Blue Hawaiian Helicopters announces a new partnership with the Ka’u Coffee Mill to introduce the Craters & Coffee Tour, an exclusive, multi-sensory experience on Hawaii Island. The combo tour is designed to offer an unforgettable adventure featuring the sites, smells and tastes of Hawaii.

“We are so excited to launch our Craters & Coffee Tour with the Ka’u Coffee Mill,” says Gregg Lundberg, president of Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. “Coupled with our awe-inspiring aerial tour of Kilauea, this partnership allows us to bring guests on a buzz-worthy adventure that honors the rich history of Hawaii Island.”

Guests who book the Craters & Coffee Tour by Blue Hawaiian Helicopters will experience an exhilarating flight over Hawaii Island’s Kilauea volcano, summit and vent before an exclusive landing at the Ka’u Coffee Mill. Upon touching down just steps from the coffee field, guests will be greeted by mill manager Louis Daniele for a “seed-to-cup” walking tour through coffee orchards, milling and roasting rooms before ending in the tasting room, where several varieties of Hawaiian made coffee, local macadamia nuts and chocolate-covered peaberry coffee beans (aka “buzz-berries”) await. Back on the helicopter, guests will take in firsthand views of island’s newest landscapes in the form of exquisite black sand beaches at Pohoiki and Kapoho Bay, among other sights including towering sea cliffs and colorful ancient lava flows.

The Craters & Coffee tour is a 1 hour and 45-minute experience departing from Hilo. For more information or to book this tour, visit www.BlueHawaiian.com or call 800-745-BLUE (2583).

About Ka’u Coffee Mill

Ka’u Coffee Mill coffee is grown high on the lush mountain slopes of the Mauna Loa Volcano in the district of Ka’u on Hawaii’s Big Island, near Kīlauea Volcano and Halema’uma’u Crater. Deep volcanic soils, warm days and cool nights create a unique environment that produces coffee that has matured more slowly and is much more dense, resulting in a unique grade and cup exclusive to Ka’u Coffee Mill. Ka’u Mill is a dream realized by Edmund C. Olson and his family trust, which is committed to conserving land for agriculture and wildlife in Hawaii.
