Stopped by today on recommendation from a friend, and was vey happy we did. Had some cappuccino, and bought some coffee products. Great coffee and a gracious and very helpful host. A must stop, even if it is of the beaten path.

Matties, the owner, is a third generation coffee farmer and exporter with a vast understanding of coffee. We spent a few hours here with our two teen sons during his 6 pm daily coffee lecture.
Kristine, hi. Happy to hear from you. Thank you for your kind comments, it is important for us to convey lots of information so people can differentiate our quality from other brands...your review is like music to my ears. :) Stay in touch.
