Interesting and informative tour of an authentic working coffee farm. The gentleman who spoke to our group obviously was an expert in his subject and patiently answered all questions. This is a good trip for people who want to experience something outside of the usual touristy attractions and see some Jamaican countryside.…

We visited this small family run coffee farm while on a community tour. Mr. Black was very informative not only about coffee but also knowledgeable on various other plants locally grown. Recommend this tour to anyone.

This is a family business. The factory has one oven for roasting beans but nevertheless, it was fascinating to see the process in action. The factory has a shop where you can buy High Mountain Coffee and Blue Mountain coffee from a sister operation. One other piece of advice, where proper clothes; to do with food safety in the factory.…
