We visited this place on April 2018 and we learned about the different types of coffee plants and beans, also they have a room with different types of coffee combinations for tasting along with small pieces of bread. You can buy coffee there and jewelry made with coffee beans. I recommended this place if you are in the area go and take the tour.

The small museum consists of one big room showing coffee roasting, a coffee tasting room, coffee storage room, gift shop and an outside area near a café plantation. The presentation was very good and covered growing, pests, new and old coffee varieties, social and economic issues, and how best to prepare and store coffee. In one hour, I learned a lot. In fact, I had thought entering that I had nothing more to learn to find out I knew very little. Great talk and delicious coffee (and cookies).

3 hours learning about the process, visiting a farm, tasting varieties, experiencing the early ways of coffee making. Priority stop on any trip to the area.

Guides are very informative, suggest reserving a stop if you need an english guide. We just showed up, so only Spanish available at the time.

Prices are reasonable and you get lots of information for your dollar.

Amazing coffee and coffee products. Extremely friendly staff. You can buy and drink coffee there, or buy products to go. They also give tours of their facility, but we didn't have time to do one. Depending on where you're from, it's all relatively cheap and totally worth the money.

I went here to learn about coffee. It is a great experience though it is a bit far from the town center. The tour guide from the museum was nice but could use some more thorough knowledge.

We just went in to look around, and we stayed 2 hours.
I had 2 double espresso's and my wife had a capucino, and believe me it was the best I had in Mexico for more than a month now. The Apan brothers are exceptional people, and in addition the younger brother, Fernando, is a gifted pianist who made our time even more enjoyable by playing for us a Schumann sonata and some Mexican Jazz.
They also have tours to their coffee plantations every morning, which we missed.
Don't you guys miss this place or the tours.

We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived, but this experience was really fantastic. They have several options for tours, but unless you have planned ahead for a full day at the plantation outside of town the only viable option is the one-hour tour. We selected this option, and because we were the only guests, we had a completely private tour. The tour provides a thorough overview of coffee, from how it is grown through its processing. It was informative and our guide (one of the family members who owns the plantation) was really great. Tours are available in English and Spanish, but you may need to plan ahead to ensure an English guide is availalbe when you want to attend.

After the tour you get a coffee tasting, and an opportunity to tour their small shop where you can purchase their coffee or coffee paraphernalia.

It was a truly enjoyable 90 minute "deep dive" into coffee making!

One of my most memorable experiences in Mexico. Even though I was the only visitor Arturo and his mother between them showed me the complete process from commercial finca to cup. The tour included a tasting session and explanation of modern versus traditional cultivars. The finca is an experience not to be missed. A canopy of trees above and an amazing waterfall. A throughly enjoyable 4 hours.
