    Very unique experience. Great coffee, great coffee wine and super friendly people... who were very patient with our poor Spanish speaking skills. We may even try to squeeze in another visit before we return home

    el Toledo ORGANIC COFFEE FARM, Atenas, Costa Rica I just can't say enough about this 7 acre family owned, self sustaining, organic coffee farm! We were fortunate enough to stay in Atenas, Costa Rica with a friend who lives there 6 months out of the year! He knows the Calderon family well and recommended we take the tour! We began by learning how the farm came to be organic and the hardships the family experienced with that decision. Next we watched Gabriel roast coffee. It was simply fascinating learning about how the same bean can be so different just by keeping it in the roaster a moment or two longer. Then we sat to taste the difference between the roasts... my favorite was the dark roast (and the medium roast)! Next we toured the farm with Brian, as we walked we learned how each action of the farmer works with nature... not against it! This is one of the many reasons this family has been so successful with their coffee farm. Please check out their website for more details (as I'm certain I'm missing many) and be sure to pick up some of their coffee when you can!

    Small family owned farm that is on the Waze app which makes it easier to find. Very knowledgable & interesting. We walked through the coffee fields & saw how they produce their coffee. Their coffee is wonderful & we buy it often.
