If you love coffee and want to learn more about it, you must book the coffee tour. The coffee shop and its menu is awesome!

Depite heavy rains we enjoyed the explanations on coffee from the green bean to the seedling, ripe coffee, organic vertilizations, roasting and of course the highlight, the tasting of the different coffees at the end

I have no idea. But there are several other coffee tours there so I would check with all of them. It is also perhaps possible that you could arrange for a special tour that would include only those parts that could be done... More
