He gave is a very interesting overview of the coffee industry as it currently stands, explaining the need for radical changes within the industry.... More

We liked this tour very much. Rich is a passionate coffee farm owner. He told us so much about the coffee making process and his own farm. We loved this afternoon excursion, learned a lot and walked away with a new broadened view on our daily cup of coffee. We highly recommend taking the Finca dos Jefes tour during your... More

My girlfriend and I had never been to a coffee plantation before, so we didn't really know what to expect. And we can't really compare it to anything else, for obvious reasons. I, for one, had pretty high expectation, since this was something I really wanted to do while we were in Panama. Choosing Boquete coffee tours in favour of... More

We were collected by "Rich" at precisely the time and location that he stated and once inside his van he made my wife and i, as well as the one other guest, very welcome with some jokes etc. The plantation location and grounds were very picturesque and were an obvious source of pride for our host. Rich sat us on... More

I live in Costa Rica and have a coffee farm. I learned much here about the differences in how Panama and Costa Rica operate. I loved the hands on roasting experience and the detail describing organically raised and processed coffee. I would like to return several more times.

I was told the best coffee tour was at the De La Luna coffee plantation owned by Richard Jeffers a California expat. He uses the tours to suppliment the coffee income and does the tours himself. He has all kinds of interesting information about the coffee business in Panama,and much more. The tour includes roasing, grinding and packaging some coffee... More

We were so happy we did this tour! Rich is a wonderful, down to earth man who has a tremendous passion for the well-being of the Panamanian people. His coffee farm is beautifully well-maintained and fair-trade. I was so impressed by his story and his commitment to running a business that first and foremost cares for those who work there....

A must if you are interested in coffee. Rich's farm is beautiful and he sure knows a lot of interesting facts not only about growing coffee but also it's history and the coffee industry.

Rich was a fascinating fun guide, who knew his stuff. He provided insights into the economics, politics, agriculture and processing of coffee, as well the delicious tasting, that is, "cupping".
