The cold brew was great but that was all that was available. It appears only the owner is able to operate the espresso machine and so no other versions of drinks were obtainable on a Monday.More

Description
We have moved from our downtown Fortuna location to the property where we have our plantation and do the Coffee tour. Come visit, just 2 miles/3 kms away from the old location.

To get there simply take 702 out of Fortuna and make a right on Avenue 301 which is the road to the Fortuna Watefall. We will be on your right hand side, immediately before the Rainforest Chocolate Tour site, about 0.5 miles/800 meters from the intersection.
