We can highly recommend this tour! When we arrived our guide greeted us in front of the beautiful estate finca. While the horses were being fetched we strolled through the garden. Then it was time to go - the two of us, our guide and horse carer. The horses are tame, so even my boyfriend who doesn't have many experiences with horseback riding was doing fine. Along the way our guide talked about the estate and the coffee making. After about 30 min we made a stop for a beautiful waterfall. Unfortunately, I experienced some blood pressure problems, so we had to cut our horseback riding trip short. But everyone was very patient with me, caring, and they swiftly organized a car to fetch us. Later we managed to visit the factory and again got a perfect explanation of how things work there and tasted some good coffee! Thanks again to everyone, we enjoyed our stay very much!

Very complete visit in which you learn the entire coffee process from the plant to the cup. Highly recommended, even for non-coffee lovers.
