  • Wow. Just WOW. This tour was not just educational but thought provoking because of the way Gabriel presented global agricultural and marketing issues. He and his family and farm are truly special in the products produced and they way they explain why and what they do. From discussions on “why do you drink coffee?” to tour of all crops to coffee wine tasting and finally to coffee roasting, brewing, and tasting different roasts while eating different snacks that changed the palate - truly magnificent. I’m letting everyone know to visit here, and I’m going again for sure!
  • The drive is beautiful and a bit brutal. Nestled up in the hills lies this coffee farm with revolutionary ideas and methods that is changing the way farming is done. We went for the coffee and left with our minds blown and our lives changed. Gabriel and his family are pioneers in farming in a way that is good for our health, the plants, and the planet. You need to take this tour. They are making wine out of the coffee fruit and skins! And oh yeah...the coffee is excellent!
  • This tour was very informative and educational. Gabriel is very knowledgeable and you can see that he is passionate about what he does. We left there with so much more knowledge about the coffee farming world and we really enjoyed the discussions with Gabriel. Highly recommend this tour!
  • This is an exceptional coffee tour. Gabriel is a total legend and comes across genuine and sincere, and is very knowledgeable about both the coffee industry as a whole and farming. No matter how much you think you know about coffee you will learn something here!
  • A true must-do tour if you're in the area. Learn about coffee and this family farm's progression in ethical organic techniques. Stay for the home-made lunch! Gravel entrance and parking, but our rental car was fine. Wear shoes with some traction for a mild walk through the farm. Most of the tour is on flat land, so you can skip the rest if you have knee problems.
