The coffee tour was a very good one. Nice to hear they are giving things back to the local community. Our guide was William and was a very kind person. He took the time for our both and explained everything very well in English.

It was our first time on a coffee farm and one of our first times on horses. From meeting in the morning we felt immediately comfortable with the guide, Celia, and the other guests. The first few moments on the horses took a little getting used to but the guides were very aware of everyone and quick to step in with a calming hand or words. The farm is absolutely beautiful and this was an amazing way to see it, from down by the waterfall all the way up to ‘the big tree’. Can’t recommend this tour or coffee farm more highly! If you don’t want to ride horses just coming for a walking tour or tasting will definitely be worth it. Thank you to Celia and all the others who made for a wonderful day!

This place is nestled down in the valley so make sure you have good directions. We took an off-road adventure and got there but I think google maps was confused. 🤣 The staff were so friendly and accommodating and made us coffee as we waited. The small church and history was a nice addition too. Our guide had so much knowledge to share and the taste testing of coffee coffee was fun too!!. If you want to learn about coffee I couldn’t imagine anyplace being more friendly and knowledgeable staff. And a plus is a spectacular Sabo tree.

We went on the full day tour at Aquiares, with Cecilia as our guide. She did a wonderful job explaining the history of the company, town and church. We also gained a lot of knowledge of the time and effort which goes into making every coffee. It was certainly a great experience to pick coffee beans, which gave us a great appreciation for the work that goes into this business. The lunch was absolutely amazing, and the tour of the factory was very interesting. We ended with sampling and testing several different coffees, which showed how much more we still have to learn. I would highly recommend this tour.
