The Coffee Tour
From the plantation entrance to the reception area, the tour guide will have 5 minutes to explain the group different data about the Hacienda such us history, location, climate, topography, etc.
1. Rancho “Mirador”
The first stage of the coffee tour is our rancho "El Mirador" where the tourists can sample our delicious and prime gourmet coffee. This place has a capacity of a group of 60 people well accommodated in comfortable chairs and tables.
Here, our great team of tour guides will introduce themselves to the group, will offer them the usage of restrooms and will get them ready to start with the tour, that consists of 7 different stations, as follows:
2. “Seedling Station”
Before we get to the Seedlings, visitors can admire our veggies. We have tomatoes, corn, radish, cucumber and much more! The tour begins next to La Casona, where we have our nursery demonstration. Here, the group can see the different stages during the first year of the coffee plant.
After this, the group is taken inside the plantation. We built a trail so the visitors can actually experience how it feels like to be out in a coffee field.
3. “Get on the Wagon”
The oxcart is a very important icon in our coffee history; in the third station of the coffee tour you will be able to discover not only why it was so important to us but also why we paint it now with so many colors. Besides this, you will hear the story of our national saying “Get on the Wagon”.
