Fantastic tour with Gregorio and Manuela (our translator). A really friendly, informative, interesting and interactive tour. The coffee is amazing and it's great to support the cooperative.

Three of us took part in the peanut butter making tour. Located in a town just out of Antigua, we really enjoyed the experience. The tour was very personalized and provided by a local girl and her family in their home. We partook in the whole process, which was professionally presented. The final product was absolutely delicious, and I couldn't... More

This was the best way to learn about coffee! We met at Freddy Jr. and Julio's house for lunch and their family cooked the most delicious meal for us. Freddy Jr. doesn't speak english so his brother Julio did most of the talking for him and they are just the cutest family. Getting to the fields was a tad more... More

We, five women in our sixties, traveled by taxi to this small town where were were met by Miguel and a translator in the town square. We then walked to the coffee farm where we learned step by step the process of planting coffee trees, caring for the trees organically, picking the coffee berries, etc. All of the information was...

Joined a Saturday tour with four other people; we visited with farmer Mercedes Gonzales and interpreter Julio. We walked twenty minutes to the farm plot to see coffee plants growing, and got a good explanation of the species, type of plant and soil, and the propagation process for new planting and cultivation. Mercede's pride in his skills and quality was... More

We were lucky enough to have a tour just the two of us- with a local coffee farmer, local translator and one of the de la genre supervisors. It was amazing to have such great insight into the local way of life. We went to the coffee growers home after seeing his plantation, where his wife roasted and ground the... More

Highly highly recommend. Learn how coffee is made from seed to cup, as you are literally walked through the entire process by a local coffee farmer. We were paired with Gustavo for this tour, as well as a local translator. It was only my boyfriend and I on the tour so we got to interact directly with him in a... More

We were given a tour by a lovely lady and an excellent translator from one of the families who are part of the coffee coalition. We had a pleasant walk up to the plantation and given a great deal of information on how their business works. We felt welcome; were given delicious coffee and invited to chat and enjoy it... More
