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.

Loved the tour. The Guide was very knowledgeable about the plantation. They made coffee for us to taste, taught us the difference between "Robusta" and "Arabica" coffee. This plantation is all about organic way of farming. It was very educational and entertaining!
