Smell, feel, and taste...
Our meeting point will be at Mayagüez.  A drive of approximately one hour will take
us to the small mountainous town of Las Marías where we will visit Hacienda
Palma Escrita, home of Café La Casona, a coffee plantation still in operation.

We will be greeted by the owners, who will be in charge of a walk through the
plantation while you learn more about the different varieties of coffee and how they
are grown in this side of the mainland of Puerto Rico.  As you join this guided walk,
you will see all the stages involved in the cultivation process (cultivation, harvest of
the fruit, processing, pulping, washing, drying, hulling, and finally, roasting) until it
gets to your table.  Ready to taste a cup of fresh coffee?

An optional stop for lunch is available at Erik´s Bakery at the town of Maricao, lunch
not included in price.

Off season, we can still visit the plantation although coffee will be growing for the
next year and you will not necessarily see all the stages of the cultivation process.
