While we had a hard time finding it the experience was a real treat.
The easiest way to find it is to google Museo Biblioteca del Cafe, Calle Palmer Cabalines, Ciales, Puerto Rico. As you drive into the town of Ciales the roads narrow considerably and it gets quite congested with cars. Also the Google maps directions take you up what seems to be sketchy side streets. Finally the museum is just one storefront that blends in with the rest of the block. Once you are close find the first available parking space and then ask for directions.
As mentioned in the other reviews the museum hosts were extremely helpful and knowledgeable on explaining how coffee beans were graded and chosen for coffee.
Of course the best part was drinking the exquisite coffee, which was complementary. Again while it wasn't obvious the second best part was the opportunity to purchase premium Puerto Rican coffee beans ($25/lb).
We combined this visit to the Coffee Museum with a trip to the caves at el coayuco la cueva del Indio near Arecibo. A great day trip from San Juan.
