We are a sustainable organic coffee farm. We have been using sustainably organic practices for over fourteen years. Today we are happy to consider ourselves environmentalists first, and coffee farmers second.

This was an outstanding and informative tour. A bit rugged in walking the trail in the coffee groves, but well worth the effort.
