  • The tour is free along with the tasting. The nature hike is really affordable for a group. Don't expect some grand nature hike or botanical garden. However it is quite an experience in the cloud forest with the diverse flora and the veiw. Its a steep climb down and a short but really beautiful nature hike. At the end was a platform with picnic tables. Weather is unpredictable and can rain, mist or be clear in the span of minutes. We really enjoyed the experience and the dark roast has nice chocolatey notes.
  • Cool place, delicious coffee!! The tour was closed due to staffing. Definitely take a poncho. It’s cool weather but not cold. The nature area was awesome. Coffee a bit pricey, but great quality and a rare opportunity. Lava tubes are really awesome!!
