Guess what: planing on buying a second grinder for coffee to give a choice of bean. How would you like that? Thanks for the nice words.

“The awesome beetour!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

The first adventure of the bee tour was the beekeeper uniform, including gloves and head! Haha, it was fun to wear it! After this prepartion we went with a small group to the bee hives in town. We were realy part of this mission: we all got some tools in our hands and we hold the frames with the bees so we got a close look to their habitait.
We were very lucky: we put some queen bees in different bee hives. An unforgettable adventure!
The food and coffee we orderd afterwards was delicious, specially the bread, butter and real cheese!

“A must do in Mindo!!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Upon entering The Beehive, we immediately felt at home. The atmosphere was extremely cozy iwith a wonderful ambiance complete with a plethora of hummingbirds, great food, great company, and amazing conversation. We had no idea what we were in for when the owner, Ingo, sat with us at our table. Hours after closing, he continued to talk to us and gave us travelers amazing life advice. If you go to Mindo, you must go to The Beehive or you are missing a true gem.

“Oh boy - was this good”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We actually heard about this place from other travelers who told us about the bee tour they offer (if you do not do the bee tour you have missed out on something in your live!!)
We felt imidiately comfortable in this very cozy place.
Ingo and Genny, the owners, have been very nice, helping us and other guests in almost all languages and serving us great coffee, amazing hot chocolate, a delicious lunch platter and a unbelievable amount of friendlyness.
It was pretty busy, but they have had a open ear to every question and a answer to all of them.

We did the bee tour the next day (read my reference there) and enjoyed very much our time in The Beehive with this lovely couple.

Vielen Dank!!
Und immer weiter so!!
