Coffee Tours

Want to get a first-hand look at what TLF is up to in Pluma Hidalgo? Take a tour on an organic Pluma coffee farm and learn about the disability inclusion and specialty coffee practices our families use.


 We want to share our passion for inclusion, equality and speciality coffee with you!

What do I do on the coffee tour?

The organic Pluma coffee farm (Finca Don Juan) is a 20-minute drive outside of Pluma Hidalgo. Ryan Sanders (TLF Field Director) will drive you there and guide you along a stunning hour-long bush walk with Don Juan, the farm owner.
We will then take you back to TLF’s new ranchito, show you how to plant a coffee seedling and treat you to a traditional Oaxacan lunch.
Don’t have a lot of time in Pluma Hidalgo? We also have a short tour option available for those with limited time. You can stop by our farm and learn about disability inclusion over a delicious cup of fresh Pluma coffee. We will then teach you how to plant a coffee seedling of your very own. Our tours are child friendly and open to people of all abilities.

Awesome night at Caii-Michelle's Disaster Relief Concert for children affected by the Mexican earthquake last year. It was a beautiful fusion of New Zealand and Mexican culture. To help raise money Caii-Michelle also produced an album for the concert and $2 of every CD sold goes to TLF! Thank you thank you!
