If your idea of a trip around a coffee plantation is neat bushes, shiny machinery and a slick, modern operation, well, this is not it. If you appreciate quirky ingenuity, authenticity and a passion that produces prize winning, organic coffee, then you are going to love your visit to this small finca. Our guide, Felix, was amazing and very knowledgeable. He answered all our questions as he guided us through every aspect of coffee production from plant to cup. The machines have all been designed and constructed by hand from bits and pieces from cars and old machinery - recycling at it’s very best. We were shown how to roast the beans, and how to properly taste the three different coffees we were offered. This visit was memorable and the highlight of our trip to Boquete. We bought four bags of beans to take home, and when I am sipping my morning coffee almost 12,000 km from where it was purchased I shall remember and appreciate the dedication that went into producing it.

We went to boquete already with the ideia of doing a coffe Tour. Read some reviews about Fincas but this one never showed up.. thank good to our vulcano baru guide (Plinio) a local guide that knows everything from is land and where you can have the most amazing experience! There is not much information about this farm so we were a bit hesitant all we know is that is one of the most authentic farms in town that still grows coffe the same way as they used to do in the old days. All very manual and the few machines were all build by the 2 of the owners with materials from old cars and other machines. The tour was amazing, Alex (one of the owners) guided us throughout the farm, the coffee trees and explain all about is passion for coffe. We tasted coffe fruit from all different types, we roared coffe and had an amazing taste. You feel that you’re really a good guest in their house! If you’re looking for geisha coffe to taste, even if not offered in the main taste you can always ask for it. I feel like a coffe specialist now!! It’s was one of our high points from out trip to boquete!

We learned so much about Tito’s coffee growing and production process. Most impressive were his hand made machines. The Geisha variety of coffee is simply delicious bold and smooth with floral aroma. The tour we took was in 2015. Wished we had bought more coffee while on the farm. I was listening to Duolingo podcast in spanish “el milagro del café” yesterday and realized it is the very coffee plantation we visited in 2015. ¡No podía creerlo! I could not believe it! I could hardly contain my excitement. Vamos Tito for making the podcast. Highly recommend the tour.

We booked our tour thru Marmellena Hostel. We were picked up promptly at the agreed time right after lunchtime in a nice mini van and driven with our guide high into the hills over Boquete. Our guide Arlmundo, had worked on plantations and he really knew his stuff! The tour was in 100% English. We began in the plantation discussing different coffees, plants and how they grow it here in Panama. The tour moved on to different beans and the processes that happen to them - all by hand. This plantation is all about quality, not quantity. Finally we went inside to see how the washing, grading and processing is done. We completed the afternoon roasting some beans and then discussing each ones taste and smell - finally drinking some coffee and being able to purchase some product (unavailable in Panama anywhere else as the beans are sold to only 1 roaster each in California, Japan and Taiwan.) You dont know how much you dont know about coffee until you do this tour!! It takes most of the afternoon but is well worth every cent and minute!! Very highly recommended and it was the high point of our stay in Boquete region!!

Don Tito started this small coffee finca using the parts from a washing machine and a jeep to fashion some of the tools and machines he would need to start his business. He hasn't stopped inventing things. He's like the master recycler of the coffee business. This is no run-of-the-mill tour. It is personalized and intimate. A real treat. I thought I had reviewed the Milagros Coffee Tour when I visited last February when I was in Boquete for the Blues and Jazz Festival, but I don't see my review, so I'm submitting this one. Our guide, Israel Guerra, was excellent and leads a number of other tours in Boquete---6253-6693.
