In the 2 hours we learned about how a local family owned coffee farm has moved from using chemicals and mass coffee production to a very environmentally friendly self-sustainable business. Fascinating to hear about their experiences and transition. Very inspiring for anyone interested in coffee...More

I wanted an intimate coffee tour, and El Toledo delivered. They are a family run business, and you get the feel they really love what they do. They informed us about more than just coffee, it was quite enjoyable. Bring cash, they aren't set up...More

Very easy to find. Helpful staff. Unfortunately, berry season was over, so there was not much to see. We did experience tasting and the roastery. Personally, I felt that the presenter was a bit long-winded as far as overselling organic farming practices. I think we...More

Go to their website and email them. They got back to us within a day and we only booked a few days in advance.

Hi - we are visiting Atenas with our two children, ages 6 and 4. While this sounds like an informative and beautiful experience, are there things to keep kids' interest too? Not looking for a playground, but rather curious if this is catered to all ages?
