Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Sandra Farms Coffee

Sandra Farms Coffee
February 27th, 2015

Most people go to Puerto Rico for the beaches and the adventure parks. But for some folks, that’s not entirely true. There are some quirky attractions along the way, and while they may not be all that popular the people who visit these spots are often amazed by their experiences. Such is the understated charm of Sandra Farms Coffee.

This isn’t some cool café that yuppies like to spend time at. This is in fact a small coffee farm and plantation. They don’t sell a lot of mass-produced products, you see, and in fact you may have to go to their website if you want a taste of their coffee and you’re an American. But in Rincon, the coffee they produce is very popular, and their distinctive red packaging can be seen everywhere.

The Tour

Usually, a visit to Sandra Farms Coffee in Adjuntas is part of some of the more formal tours in Puerto Rico. But as a tourist, you can go there on your own too. You can just call Israel and Sandra Gonzalez at 787-409-8083 or send them an email. You can also ask them for more precise directions on how to get to their farm.

From San Juan, the road to Sandra Farms Coffee takes you along the Arecibo observatory and the Rio Camuy caves. From Rincon, it’s a two-hour drive and the roads aren’t always smooth.

The Place

But mind you, once you get there, you’ll realize that the trip was worth it. You won’t really be taking a tour when you’re there. It’s more like being welcomed by long lost relatives who are eager to show off their place. This is a mountainside farm, and the view from the balcony is terrific.

Israel and Sandra also gives you a very intimate view of what it’s like to produce gourmet coffee with modern considerations. They employ traditional coffee-growing methods, but their concern for the ecology is decidedly modern. They don’t use as much electricity and water to operate, and don’t use fossil fuel at all. They also recycle compost and biomass. They roast coffee every day, and each batch is tagged with the date of their roasting.

The couple answers all your questions about the farm’s history and their operations, and you get to realize their passion for creating premium quality coffee. It’s really like visiting with friends and family.

So should you go and visit Sandra Farms Coffee? Perhaps you should, especially if you’re even mildly curious about the beverage. It’s a very informative and relaxing “tour,” and you get a great cup of coffee along with some delicious snacks like chocolate and grapefruit. You get to escape from the bustle of the noisy cities and tourist-y beaches, and instead enjoy a quiet commune with nature while sipping world-class coffee.

If you’re still in doubt, you may want to check out the reviews on Trip Advisor. Each and every review has given it a full 5-star rating. Now that’s not something you see every day.
