  • His tour was so fantastic! Educational, engaging and interesting! We had a group of 13 and all loved it! The family that ran this plantation were just lovely! Thank you for everything!!
  • Had a great experience learning not only about coffee, but what also encouraged this coffee farm to move towards organic farming. Gabriele was extremely knowledgeable and informative about the differences between light, medium and dark roasting.
  • Very unique experience. Great coffee, great coffee wine and super friendly people... who were very patient with our poor Spanish speaking skills. We may even try to squeeze in another visit before we return home
  • Everything you ever wanted to know about coffee, many thanks
  • el Toledo ORGANIC COFFEE FARM, Atenas, Costa Rica I just can't say enough about this 7 acre family owned, self sustaining, organic coffee farm! We were fortunate enough to stay in Atenas, Costa Rica with a friend who lives there 6 months out of the year! He knows the Calderon family well and recommended we take the tour! We began by learning how the farm came to be organic and the hardships the family experienced with that decision. Next we watched Gabriel roast coffee. It was simply fascinating learning about how the same bean can be so different just by keeping it in the roaster a moment or two longer. Then we sat to taste the difference between the roasts... my favorite was the dark roast (and the medium roast)! Next we toured the farm with Brian, as we walked we learned how each action of the farmer works with nature... not against it! This is one of the many reasons this family has been so successful with their coffee farm. Please check out their website for more details (as I'm certain I'm missing many) and be sure to pick up some of their coffee when you can!
