We were there on a Wednesday. Not many people around. Parking is free. The tours are only a handful of slots during the day. At 2:30 it is very pleasant weather at the high elevation of the estate. Spend some time in the small enclosed bonsai garden and butterfly garden - both free. Our tour guide was very pleasant and... More

It was great to learn how the fruit grows, how it is picked and the process to get a great cup of coffee . Makes you appreciate the coffee once you realize what has to happen to get the finished product.

We enjoyed the tour of the coffee estate and beautiful property! We learned so much from the growing process through production with several opportunities to taste the coffee. They have a wonderful gift shop with coffee products, clothes, and lots of souvenirs.

Tour takes guests through the life of the coffee bean, from planting to harvesting to hulling, drying and roasting. Very informative

If you want to see how coffee is processed before you get it this is one of the tours to take as it is very good and I have taken it a few time with family that visit here. They take you from where the coffee is picked to where you can buy the coffee there.

Inquired about the visit before visiting and got a complete answer right away. No need to reserve you only have to wait until the tour starts ( several tours a day ). Interesting visit during which the whole process is explained. After the tour, you can taste their different coffees and of course buy the coffee and other things in... More

Not much to add to the great reviews. The hosts are friendly and welcoming, although we were 5 minutes late for our tour because of heavy traffic on the way, they found one of the guide to take us through. It is a enjoyable tour and a fascinating learning about coffee. we loved it!

We enjoyed the tour. Everything was clean and tidy, well organised. Our guide was excellent, and patient!! I now know how coffee is grown and how it ends up in my coffee cup, which is not at all as I had imagined. I was very pleased to see a very important piece of machinery manufactured in the UK nearly 100... More
