A must if you are interested in coffee. Rich's farm is beautiful and he sure knows a lot of interesting facts not only about growing coffee but also it's history and the coffee industry.

Rich was a fascinating fun guide, who knew his stuff. He provided insights into the economics, politics, agriculture and processing of coffee, as well the delicious tasting, that is, "cupping".

I normally have no trouble writing reviews but with Finca Dos Jefes there is SO much to pick from I'm not sure where to begin. It's all good! Rich picked us up at our hotel and I enjoyed chatting with him as we tried to find the others on our tour; if you book through some tour group make sure... More

Just back from a morning trip to Finca Dos Jefes. Rich, the owner, was our tour guide. He is so passionate about what they are doing to change the way in which coffee farms operate, you can't help but be inspired by him. The tour was really informative as well as entertaining, through Rich's laid back, humorous style of guiding... More

I grow coffee, I sell coffee, neither was part of my plan when I moved to Boquete, both are part of my current reality. As a Boquete coffee grower I have sent my children to the coffee tour at Finca Dos Lunas and as a writer about Boquete I have been there too. Richard, Gary and Lazlo are the best,... More

Gary was a wonderful guide whose assign for the farm and coffee shone though. He kept the discussion interesting and informative. Being able to bring home the coffee we roasted was a great souvenir.

Like many other reviews, our tour was guided by Rich, who is passionate about not just what's in the cup, but the industry as a whole. He provides an in depth education in all aspects of the world's second largest international commodity, from the history of the coffee trade to the experiences of a modern day farmer. Equally serious and... More

The half-day tour by Ruiz Coffee Distributors is fascinating and immensely informative. Carlos, the guide, is very knowledgeable, delightfully entertaining and courteously critical of the pace of development in his beloved valley. You will learn, in a very interesting manner, much more than you can possibly retain!

Rich is doing everything right at his small coffee farm in Boquete. Excellent coffee, informative tour, but most important is his respect for the workers and the land. Be sure you book the coffee tour that goes to Rich's Dos Jefes - Cafe de la Luna coffee.

We got picked up by Rich at our hotel and on the drive up we were already in some of the greatest coffee territory in the world. He explained the process, the history, and had a passion to help those on the "bottom" end of a broken coffee industry. The tour is very personalized and can be as informative as... More
