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.

This was a fun tour. We got to see a coffee plantation and learned about how coffee is made. This is a family owned business and provided a very intimate interaction.

Gabriel is extremely knowledgeable and a very good teacher. His family story shows the cost and benefit from moving from chemical based monoculture farming to organic to diverse shade growing. Very worthwhile and inspiring. Delicious coffee.
