This was the most very educational tour we've ever been in. We got to know a lot about coffee from the best host(Judy) ever. If you haven't been here than YOU NEED TO COME.

Absolutely gorgeous coffee farm. So serene and beautiful. We bought a couple cups of coffee and sat down at their veranda and took in the view for quite a while.

We learnt a lot from Lucas. He was very knowledgable and explained everything to us about how the coffee bean is harvested. The views were amazing as we sat and drank our coffee after the tour.
