The owners greeted us from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Very nice and helpful to explain the coffee they had and their organic operations used to make their coffee. Highly recommend trying the dark chocolate covered coffee beans. Great treat.

Come visit for true coffee knowledge and outstanding coffee quality. This is the location where we sell the coffee that we Grow, Mill & Roast in our Dota/Tarrazu plantation. Our coffee shop/store is in a new location, surrounded by a coffee plantation. Come have a cup of coffee, take coffee home or take our Coffee Tour. You will love our new setting. We have tables and rocking chairs right by our coffee plantation.
