Overview
More
Selva Negra's Coffee Tour is the only full coffee experience you will encounter. Touring an active functioning coffee farm during coffee harvest (November to February) you will see the process that your favorite drink undergoes. The rest of the year, you will still get to tour the farm, since coffee works go on all year long. Selva Negra is much more than coffee, we're a full almost self-sustainable farm and ecolodge.
