We are a very small farm, the operation is manage by the family, Gerardo, Sole y Raul and Gabriel and Ivette, We have nothing but the coffee we produce, so do not expect big buildings at all! Our coffee tour is educational. We want to show you how we work with nature instead of against it!
2 hours Tour, walking through the plantation and learning about coffee and nature! Coffee tasting, Wine Tasting, roasting and brewing!
All of this for Only $20 Per Person!
Children under 10 years old don't pay!
Why are we cheaper than others?
We believe in education, that's the key to our future! and we are small, and we do the tour ourselves, so cheaper but not less informative!
Watch this video to know more about us, it was taken for free by a student who came here few years ago:
Or, watch this other video taken by Peter Greenberg. He came to the farm, shot a video of it, and publish it for free, so thanks to him we can get the message in this way to many more people!

This is a coffee tour that has a lot more than just coffee! Permaculture farming is the main idea we want to share. it means we have a lot more. Try different kinds of tropical fruits right from the tree.
Have you ever grind sugar cane? (ask for the sugar cane if we do not offer it to you, sometimes we skip it just because our brain forgot it)
Work with us! help even just for one day!
We are doing this way of farming not because this is more profitable, it's because it's the right thing to do! but it's really more difficult! So there is a volunteer program as well that allow you to learn more!
Picking coffee, that's just 3 months in year! But it does not mean we are free the rest of the year!
Coffee is store and then we need to be processing it during the year, and the farm needs to be prepared for next year!
The reason we are not available Fridays is that we are offering our product to the locals farmer's markets!
El Toledo Coffee family farm has been evolutionin in many forms and ways.
This year harvest, 2016 and 2017. Wasn't the exception of this evolution. One unspected and surprising resolt of a new list of products created on the farm.
First of all. We aren't the first ones. But there are no too many other people doing this yet.
This year, after researching how good the coffee fruit is, and talking about why it has not been used, we decided to stop wasting it as most coffee farms do.
Coffee natural sugars can get up to 30 % brix. (Measurement of sugar)
Antioxidants are higher than blueberries.
And there is a good taste of it.
What do you think we can do with it?
Please don't dout about giving us your ideas.
Well, we have coffee fruit wine. And a coffee fruit juice. Coffee flower, and
-no. Coffee fruit wine!
We did not use the beans or coffee made to do this. We just got the coffee fruits and process it to make our different recepies of wines.
What kind of flavors? What porsentage of alcohol? What kind of wine?
The only way to explain this is by trying it.
This isn't part of the tour but you can ask if you will be interested in trying our products.
On the juice is like a very thick prune, or plum, juice with nicer coffee fruit flavors. It's different. But you can find those flavors in it.
The wines are red dry. Red sweed, white dry and sweet.
Strong and gently flavor combined.
Some taste like port flavors but not as strong in alcohol!
Ice-wine flavors as well.
And even more flavors and descriptions.
This year we have about 40 recepies.
This is our research. Next year we would continue the best ones or more popular ones!!
If you want to be part of our sponsors on this research don't hesitate to contact us. We want the world to stop wasting so much. Coffee beans are only about 25% of the production on the farm. So if farmers used 75 % on something instead of pollution. That would be better for everyone. And to be able to do this, we have first to stop using so much water to process our coffee.
Isn't that a win-win situation?
