This was a well arranged and educational tour of a beautiful coffee plantation! The surroundings are stunning and it is nice to see all the old machinery still in action. The guiding was excellent and the butterfly gardens beautiful.

Our tour took an hour plus tastings and gift shop. Ample parking. Please use Waze to find. Google maps was our friend until trying to find this place.
