We recently returned from Costa Rica with our two young boys (6 and 2 years old), and while we had a number of "kid-friendly" things planned (which they enjoyed very much), their time with Gabriel and his family at El Toledo was the highlight. In fact, my 6 year old has asked several times when we are going back so that he can stay with Gabriel for a few days and work the farm. :)
My husband and I learned so much about coffee production, and came home with a wonderful product. This family's very personal story and journey is about so much more than coffee, though. I came home inspired to ask some very important questions about our lifestyle and priorities as well.
Gabriel's wife was sweet and patient with my kids, as were his parents. Besides learning about coffee, they got to trek around the woods, eat a number of fruit and veggies that grow there, and even cut and juice sugar cane!! We spent several hours at El Toledo, and hope to go back, this time as friends. Gracias, Amigos, por todo!! :)
