we were late for the tour due to traffic but Kurt and other people in the group were all very nice and waited for us. Kurt started the tour by telling us history of coffee, he is a very good story teller and makes us all laugh through out the session and it's very educating. After the stories, he took us to the coffee plantation and show us how the coffee is made. There's coffee tasting with homemade dessert after the tour. Overall, the tour is well worth the $15 fee. Highly recommend the tour especially if you're a coffee lover. The road to the cafe is quite steep, drive safely. There's a restaurant called "Al Sur" in Ponce which was recommended by Kurt, it was indeed very good!! If you plan to stop by Ponce after the coffee tour, this would be a lovely dinner choice. It's inside the art museum.
