We made reservations (highly recommended) the last day we were in the area. Gabby was our guide and she was incredibly informative and gave us a wonderful tour of this small family operation.

Learned all about organic, sustainable coffee germinating, pollinating, drying, roasting, grinding. It was fascinating. Gabby our guide was a wealth of knowledge and just a sweetheart. Great coffee!
