Great coffee place in town to taste and enjoy local coffee. Alejandra is lovely. Please book a tour with her at her coffee farm. You will learn a lot about coffee.

It was a fantastic, relaxing and personalised tour. We decided to book a more intimate tour to see the coffee production process. Santiago's didn't fail. It wasn't rushed, and we went with a 4 year old and 10 year old and everything about the experience...was perfect, even with kids. We also had a homemade lunch which was amazing. This is a highly recommended tour if you wish to see the coffee production process in this region. Thanks again Santiago and all the best. Cheers, SamMore

We booked a tour through our hotel and really enjoyed it. We met Alejandra at her family farm and started off with some delicious fruit. We then had a lovely tour of the coffee plantation and in depth explanation of everything involved in producing excellent...coffee. It was a unique opportunity to really understand the coffee culture and see the passion that goes into it. The tour was in (excellent) English. We also bought some coffee at the shop and are enjoying drinking it at home already.More

After our excellent tour around Santiago’s coffee farm we headed in to Quimbaya to taste the end product and Santiago’s twin sister’s homemade cakes. Everything was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed. The coffee was the best that I have tasted so far in Colombia very rich,...smooth and well rounded. The tour of the coffee farm in the morning was excellent and well recommended for anyone wishing to know about coffee. MikeMore

We called on the 25th of December to book a tour and Alejandra told me we could decide on the time. We had the little issue that we needed Spanish and English at the same time given my mom doesn't speak English. Alejandra and Santiago...didn't see a problem with that and we had a simultaneous tour. Alejandra took my mom (on spanish) and Santiago me and my husband ( in english). I really appreciate not only their knowledge but also their patience as we were with our 14 months old baby and they were really nice and sweet. We visited their farm and learnt not only about coffee but also fruits in the region. At the end we went to Quimbaya for a coffee tasting in their coffee shop which was great. I fully recommend this tour.More

After visiting the coffee farm with Santiago we went to the coffee shop he and his sister operate. The tour of the coffee farm was educational. Santiago is passionate about coffee and is progressive in bringing excellent coffee to the locals. The coffee shop could...be in any urban area and their coffee rivals most I have tasted!More

Terrific coffee. I bought a bag of beans to take back to Canada. Comfortable and cozy modern atmosphere with home made cakes. Unusual for anywhere in Colombia outside of The main cities.

We came here after touring Cafe de Altura's finca with Santiago. He was a joy to learn from and it was the most amazing tour at both the farm and in the cafe. He and his twin sister are brilliant entrepreneurs and continuing the legacy...of their family in Quimbaya. Bravo!More
