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.

It is past 11pm in Mexico... ever wondered what late night shinanigans our Field Directors Jessica Pantoja-Sanders and Ryan get up to at this time of night? Coffee stuff, that's what! They have an event down on the coast this weekend, so they're sorting good beans, bad beans, moisture testing and roasting!

A couple of weeks ago we had the absolute pleasure of hosting a LUSH New Zealand media event in collaboration with Coffee Educators Ltd. Social media influencers Kate Manihera and Annalee Muggeridge joined us for a night of fab food, fab coffee, and yarns about how to create impact through business and social media.

On that note... there are more Pluma coffee beans available for purchase! For your Pluma coffee fix, head on over to:

"With a little break in the rain, we were able to get out and help one of the TLF families collect coffee seedlings. Here Don Epifanio, Fidel, Ryan, Lorenzo and Ebony load the TLF truck to take the seedlings to Don Epifanio's ranchito (farm)." - Jessica Pantoja-Sanders
