We are a sustainable organic coffee farm. We have been using sustainably organic practices for over fourteen years. Today we are happy to consider ourselves environmentalists first, and coffee farmers second.

Very educational & extremely interesting. A short taxi ride from Atenas central park. A beautiful walk through the coffee & fruit trees with a view.
