My wife and I were staying in Boquete but decided to drive out to Volcan for this tour. It did not disappoint.

The farm is beautiful and it is a great place to hang out and hike. The sheer number of different birds alone makes spending time here worthwhile.

Emily took us on the tour. She spent way more time with us than the scheduled duration of the tour. We are coffee snobs and it was great to learn more about the production process. This tour is awesome!

We did a coffee tasting in the morning. It was so much fun and informative. The staff is very enthusiastic. It felt like you were drinking different types of coffee with friends. I highly recommend it. Go in the morning before the clouds roll in. The view is gorgeous.

Our tasting flight consisted of four varieties. The tasting girl spoke no English but between she and I we managed. My Spanish was getting better. Anyway, the coffees, Janson Family and Geisha were outstanding enough that we purchased as much as we could. Prices much lower than Boquete but the price did not effect the quality. The 2.4 hr tour, english spoken was awesome! From grove to ground, interesting and fun!

My daughter and I first took an early morning tour to learn about the Panamanian birds, and then added the Janson Geisha Coffee tour. Leif, our birding guide, and Emily, our coffee tour guide made us feel so welcome. The tour was extremely interesting and we learned so much, about local birds, where to find them and what they eat. We also heard about the local micro climate, some of the plants that grow on the land and rain-filled lakes. After that we toured the plantation to learn about growing, harvesting and processing coffee. It was fascinating to see the different coffee plants, even taste a coffee bean and see the differences in coffee plants. It was a thoroughly enjoyable tour, and the tasting of the unique Geisha coffee as well as learning how to brew the perfect cup was delighful. One thing that impressed me besides the tour was how environmentally consciously the Janson family takes care of its land, how well they take care of their workers and their children and how sustainably their production is. I would like to highly recommend this tour.

If you want to do a coffee tour and/or birdwatching, come here! My mother and I did the birdwatching and VIP Geisha coffee tour on the Janson Farm. It was by far one of my best experiences in Panama!

Leif and Emily are kind, gracious, and extremely knowledgeable guides. We scheduled the birdwatching adventure for 6 am (to try to capture the best lighting and bird activity). Leif and Emily immediately offered us coffee and refreshments upon our arrival and took the time to get acquainted before beginning the tour. Leif then personally drove us all over the farm property, making frequent stops to point out species and explaining to us (birdwatching novices) how to recognize them. Even if you have never birded I highly recommend Leif's tour! His passion and birding expertise made it a truly enjoyable experience! After birding, Emily personally showed my mother and I around the farm, sharing the Janson family history, coffee-making process, etc. The tour was in-depth and very engaging--Emily took us to the nursery, through the plantation, and the processing plant. The time flew by! At the end we did a tasting of the Geisha coffee (delicious) and Emily shared tips on making the perfect cup (you'll have to do take the tour to find out what they are!). We bought two packages of Janson Family Coffee which were very reasonably priced at $4.50 each (which was a wonderful break from often overpriced giftshops). All in all, a huge thumbs up to the Janson Coffee Farm! They have my highest recommendation!

I have more good to say about this place then bad. We chose the lake tour & I dont think it would have been worth 30.00 per person if it hadn't been for our guide . It's a small quiet lake with the attraction being birds and the raft we were on propelled by a small electric motor. After the lake our guide showed us the coffee plants explaining the process. We had coffee in the coffee shop that was complimentary then purchased coffee to take home. It was a very nice 3 hours.

Our family of 4 recently stayed at the Lake House on the Janson Family Coffee Farm for 2 nights. The house is well equipped, nicely furnished, peaceful, and comes with its own private dock on the lake. The views and landscaping around the plantation-style house are gorgeous! Our stay was fabulous and so relaxing. Emily took the time to take us to the property, show us around, and even provided kayaks! Upon arrival there was a bottle of wine and coffee from the Janson Family Farm. All of these extra touches really made our stay special and memorable. Emily also helped arrange massages. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway in a unique and beautiful setting, go for it. You won't be disappointed. This is truly a one-of-a-kind property and a very special treat. ENJOY!

The road into the coffee farm was quite rocky(literally) and hard on a rental car. There was no one in the restaurant and the staff selling coffee weren't unhelpful but not helpful.

Yicks!! We are sorry that the young shy barista's were not as helpful as you would have liked. We are always training and working on better service. When folks desire more service &/or information we (Lagunas Adventures) are here to serve. My husband & I are the only English speakers. We wish they had called on us to help you! We are a small family farm in Western rural Panama our entrance road is unpaved. It is by no means 4x4, it is a unpaved ranch road. We host daily visitors in rental cars that pass without care or concern. We are so sorry for your experience when visiting us. Next time please contact Lagunas Adventures for 1st class V.I.P. service.

I went with a birding group (Cheepers!) to this combination of coffee plantation, "national park", and sophisticated dining. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. It was one of the highlights of my 16-day visit to Panama January 2015.
The owners are great hosts with a very interesting, historical background. The birding was great but there is much to do for everyone. And wow - the coffee and outdoor lunch. I was like Downton Abbey with a view of the volcanoes.
I plan to take my kids on a future visit to Panama.

We were lucky enough to stay in the Casita on the Janson Family Coffee Farm for spring break. This is the most magical, relaxing and beautiful place!!

Lagunas Adventures really completed the magic of our stay. We first enlisted Leif to take us on a bird watching excursion. We saw many wonderful birds, including the blue dacnis, a Kingfisher and a Bayheaded Tanager. Leif adjusted perfectly to our pace (we had our 7 and 9 year old daughters along) but it was clear that he would be a great guide for any level of bird watcher!

Our next excursion with Lagunas Adventures was a coffee tour with Emily. This is a must-do if you are anywhere near Chiriqui! It was so interesting to learn about the history of the estate, coffee growing and specifically the Geisha!! We got to see every aspect of the coffee process, from the berry to the roasted bean. Emily was the perfect guide for adults and children!!!!

If you are here for a few days, a kayak on the peaceful lakes is also a must. I also took a private yoga class with Emily and it was amazing!! I have taken a lot of yoga and Pilates over the years, and Emily was one of the only instructors that adapted the class perfectly to my skills/needs.

Lagunas Adventures has something for everyone!!!!
