For US$20 a person, my wife and I much enjoyed our owner guided tour here, where the emphasis is on diversity. The plantation is maintained as far from mono-culture as you can imagine: most interesting!

We spent the morning learning all about organic coffee growing. Had the opportunity to taste three different blends, watch the coffee being roasted and understanding the process. Gabriel and his family were warm and inviting. Fun thing to do and great coffee!

Most coffee drinkers think they know something about their favorite beverage, but this tour takes you behind the scenes, not only to show you the politics behind the organic label, but what is entailed in the different roasts and brews. There's certainly more to it...More
