So much more than a coffee farm! The owners have done a great job in not only demonstrating how coffee is grown and harvested, but have also incorporated information about the culture and the people to work the land.

Truly enjoyed visiting the museums and found it very educational. Loved the chocolate made here. Our guide gave us a fantastic summary when going through the museum’s. The toilets were spotless clean.

We got quite an education about coffee. It was amazing to go out to the large patio and walk on the coffee beans. We threw them in the air and some of the group made coffee bean angels. Later we went into the shop for tasting. They say to try the coffee without sugar and cream to taste the flavor, They do not sell decaf. Also sold is chocolate. I got a 16 oz round disc for hot chocolate in a decorative bag for a gift.

Azotea is a coffee plantation (finca) but so much more. It offers three museums - coffee, Guatemalan textiles, and ancient musical instruments. If you plan ahead you can also go for a trail ride on beautifully cared for horses. Recently opened is a fabulous French restaurant, La Ferme and a small coffee kiosk with capucchino and pastries. There is also a textile weaving workshop and store. Spend the entire day and enjoy. If you are lucky enough to meet the owner, she will tell you that her father used to say, Coffee should be black as night, strong as passion, and hot as hell (more or less).

This is not just any coffee plantation. La Azotea does such a fantastic job of giving you the history of coffee as well as demonstrating how they are helping the environment plus their community. We were privileged to meet the owner, Ricardo and listened to him speak of how the "coffee growing business" has evolved over the years, how he has diversified his business and his plans for the immediate future. As for the price of the coffee, we felt it was reasonable considering it is grown without herbicides, pesticides etc. We loved it there and would highly recommend it!
