fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Our tour guide Dani was fantastic and gave a great overview of the whole coffee growing and roasting process. You even get to pick some coffee berries right from the field! The main casa at the farm is stunning and you get to enjoy a delicious home cooked lunch there. The ONLY reason I give it 4 stars is I wish after the tasting we had more time to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee on the wrap around porch or in the hammocks! I am not a coffee expert so learned a lot. Not sure how it would be if you are already super well versed in coffee. Note - the drive up there is winding, steep and would be terrible with a hangover or for someone who gets carsick.
I really enjoyed our afternoon on the coffee farm! The guides were so knowledgeable and taught us about coffee from bean to cup. The farm itself is gorgeous, and has lots of cute animals (dogs, cats, goat).
This was a lovely day of learning new things in a hands-on way.
Very informative and in a very beautiful setting. Traditional lunch was delicious.
It was so cool to learn about the coffee growing and harvesting process. We loved interacting with every step (and the best part was picking the coffee berries ourselves!). The people giving the tour are so much fun and made it a great time. We loved the home-made lunch as well!! This was one of my favorite experiences of the whole trip.
