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

I can't say enough about Dos Jefes and our tour. Beautiful farm with lots of great views. Gary is a great teacher (working on his masters in education) and really knows the ends and outs of the coffee business from the harvest to the cup. Very informative! My 12 year old daughter was able to assist in the roasting process... More

Excellent and informative coffee plantation tour by an enthusiastic and fun American ex-pat who is truly dedicated to his craft. Spent a wonderful afternoon visiting with Rich. The tour is limited to small groups and is very personal. The whole process is explained, as well as the context of the coffee industry and its benefits and disbenefits. The setting is... More

Rich, from Finca Dos Jefes, made the coffee tour more than amazing! He picked us up, and took us to his absolutely gorgeous farm. He was so knowledgeable and explained the history of coffee, the current industry and practices, and showed us around. We had a coffee tasting of medium and dark roasts, and then I even got to roast... More

I now realise I knew nothing about coffee apart from the fact I drank it! Rich has so much knowledge and gave us such an interesting and informative tour. We learnt the history, ethics and process of coffee making as we walked around the farm to see for ourselves before we got to see the roasting process and try the... More

I really can't add more than the other reviewers have said -- the place is exquisitely beautiful, Richard couldn't be nicer or more informative, and the coffee is without a doubt the best I've ever tasted. I've already finished what I brought home with me and have ordered more. It was especially heartwarming to see the opportunities provided by the... More

Rich was an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgable about the history of coffee the land and the people. For $30 we were picked up from our hotel and taking up to his farm for the tour. Nice relaxed atmosphere and was put at ease with Rich's laid back attitude. We walked the land and explained in detail what process' they... More
