We took a tour of Boquete from Hans who owns the coffeeadventures.net He showed us all around Boquete as we are thinking about moving there when we retire. He was so informative and knowledgeable about everything regarding the area. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent. It was well worth the four hours! Check his website out at coffeeadventures.net

This tour was incredibly fun and interesting. The farm is owned by Rich, an American who moved down here for "retirement" (read: running a high-end coffee farm in a sustainable, ethical manner). He picked us up from our hotel, gave us an introduction to the coffee industry and growing process, a walking tour of his farm, a tasting of a... More

Just brilliant. What was interesting and different about this tour was that we learnt not only about how coffee is produced from start to finish but we also learnt a bit about the history and economics of the coffee growing industry. It has certainly given us a lot to think about. Rich was extremely passionate and knowledgeable as well as... More

We take ours home! We had a great experience! Rich, the owner, was out of town, so we were in the very capable hands of their manager, Gary. Gary picked us up from our hotel promptly at the agreed upon time. At the farm we had a very comprehensive & educational presentation about coffee. (Pay attention, because there will be... More

This tour came highly recommended by our hotel. The owner picks you up at your hotel and the group is usually 6-8 people. Rich has an incredible knowledge of all things coffee. Walking around the farm was great, super views and very interesting. Rich is very active in helping the local community. He will show you how things were done... More

One of the main things I had to do was go to a coffee farm in Panama. I looked up and wrote to all 3 tours in Boquete and got the best response from Rich and went based off the good reviews. I took my mother and went on the tour that lasted about 3.5 hours (sounds like a lot,... More

We joined this tour on New Year's Eve and had a wonderful experience. The landscape is stunning, and we enjoyed walking around the grounds. We learned a great deal about the coffee industry and the importance of fair trade, and left with several book recommendations on the topic. As we chatted, we were able to sample several different types of... More

Rich, I'm writing to thank you so much for the lovely tour that my husband and I enjoyed at Finca Dos Jefes in January. Your tour was truly a highlight of our time in Panama! It was such a touch of class for you to pick us up from our hotel and to take time to inquire about our coffee... More

This is not your average coffee farm tour. I can't say enough about Rich and Dos Jefes. I am a professor and did the tour with a group of my college students. At the end of our time in Panama, I asked the group what their favorite activity of the trip was and the coffee tour at Dos Jefes was... More

A most interesting & informative 3 1/2 hour tour at Finca Dos Jefes, a beautiful coffee farm in the mountains near Boquete. The scenery is spectacular. The coffee farm is beautiful. The tour is a bargain. The $30 price included being picked up and dropped at our B&B and a bag of coffee to take with us. Richard is a... More
