We are a sustainable organic coffee farm. We have been using sustainably organic practices for over fourteen years. Today we are happy to consider ourselves environmentalists first, and coffee farmers second.

The owners personally take you on a tour of their coffee plantation and show the processes used in growing their organic coffee. They also treat you to samples and tastings of the different blends. It was a great afternoon activity.
