  • We are two Uruguayan who some time ago we already live in Colombia and wanted to bring to a Salvadoran newcomers to show you the benefits of this beautiful country. They recommended Recuca as an excellent hacienda coffee maker. I've already been before in other coffee growing farms but I was told that this was the best. That bad surprise when we only had 20 minutes explaining the coffee theme in a very short path. Then they took us to a warm lounge and make the people dressing up, dancing, this would be great if I had any sense but we never understood that he was dancing ´´el serrucho´´ and I had to do with coffee?! over the fence all the time uploaded reviews of tone, phrases with double meanings and likened to sex... WE WERE EMBARRASSED WITH OUR GUEST! After half an hour or more there took us to another room type place, there showed the clothing of the coffee pickers, again made them be put to the people who were in the promenade, and explained them with Double Entendre, rude comments to my mind and bad inten powersports. A real disaster: when we could still not hear so much outrage decided to go although he had not completed. Not even a cup of coffee we drank, there was no coffee tasting, they didn't show us ingenuity, showed us the processes of roasting, no nothing! really leave very badly to his country in this place, if we would like to sohez language and rude go to another place not to a coffee hacienda. What was intended to be a sample of culture became an example of vulgarity by the management in this place. SHAMEFUL, DISASTROUS, A TOTAL EMBARRASSMENT.

  • An excellent tour of coffee culture in the region, but understanding Spanish is a must! It starts with a café campesino, and a short show about the town culture in the region. Afterwards, they dress you in traditional clothing and give a chance to take pictures. Then, there is a tour of the different steps in coffee planting, harvesting and preparing for sale to roasters. Our guide, Cristian, was very funny and helpful and cheerful! A great experience, but without understanding Spanish would probably be impossible.
  • Colorful; fantastic service. The cupping session was awesome!
  • A must visit place to all the visitors to learn about the coffee culture and to have really good food. It's a day long visit and it's really economical for all travelers with lots of activities in line.
  • I do not recommend this place at all. Has nothing to do with the coffee culture. All jokes are offensive and refer to sex... nothing related with coffee, the process or culture. I am from Quindio and honestly, I felt offended, plus I didn't learn ANYTHING about the coffee process. Is a pity because there is a majestic landscape and the infrastructure is also very good.
  • Good place to learn about coffee. And to buy some.
