  • One of the highlights of our trip. The staff there were all very friendly and helpful. Free tours are very informative about coffee growing and manufacturing. The coffee was great and the quaint atmosphere was relaxing. It’s a must visit if you drink coffee. We also lucked out and had a clear day. Awesome view as well.
  • Highly recommended. We went here on a day tour. It is an amazing drive up to the plantation. Our tour guide Sam was extremely knowledgeable and we learned so much about coffee. The facilities are extremely well kept. Of course everything is expensive but we loved every minute of it. Highly recommended!
