Too be honest it was a bit disappointing. The farm / area is very, very tourist minded (what started as coffee farm and museum, now has paintball, ziplining and other activities). The thing which disturbed me the most were the big, loud diesel trucks that drive tourists around on an area which is easily walkable for most people. the disgusting diesel smells made me not buy any coffee there - it cannot be good for the plants. On top the prices are high for Guatemalan standards.
What is fun: seeing the plants and the full process from plant to coffee (guide spoke very good Engish), unpeeling the bean yourself and trying fresh coffee.
If you are in Antigua for a short visit it's nice, but if you stay longer in Central America I would recommend finding a more authentic farm which cares about its environment.
