The Café El Toledo coffee tour was superb. After Gabriel's father became ill due to traditional coffee farm use of chemicals, 15 years ago they began to pursue organic alternatives. A work in progress, Gabriel is still learning & enthusiastic about better health for himself, his family, their workers & the land. He was interested to learn of research linking arthritis to un-organic coffee.

Gabriel and his family make this experience much more than just a coffee tour, rather an unravelling of their family's story to become organic. The impact on the farm, community, economy and final product is incredible. This was a highlight of our time in Costa Rica.

Our tour guide, Gabriel, is together with his father running this farm and they do so for over 25 years. The tour starts of with an introduction and discussion on why they went organic, how the area is, how coffee is roasted and some coffee testing from different roasts. Next is a walk through the farm where you can see the coffee plants and what else grows on his land. All together this is an excellent tour and gives you great insight in what it all takes to drink a cup of coffee.
