Step 1: Growing

This plantation is about one thing and one thing only — coffee cherries! This stage of the tour will teach you about the history of this farm, as well as how this humble red cherry is grown and harvested.

Step 2: Roasting

This isn’t your average ‘cup of joe’. This special tasting in the Coffee Lab will teach you the finer points of coffee appreciation. Learn how to differentiate between the subtle changes in taste and aroma that can occur, and complete the cycle as you witness coffee go from cherry to brew.
