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.

A very happy birthday to our super-duper Field Director Jessica Pantoja-Sanders. While on their way to her pizza party the crew came across a lifeless boa constrictor. Sadly, though very important to the biodiversity of the jungle, snakes are often targeted and killed out of fear, misinformation and misunderstanding. While this chap was dead by the time the crew arrived, his death was not in vain! Thanks to Barry, Ryan and Ebony, its skin has been preserved and Jess, the birthday girl/reptile lover, is spreading the word about their importance to the local environment and biodiversity!

One of the things we are really passionate about here at The Lucy Foundation is re-defining what 'success' is. Authentic inclusion means acknowledging and celebrating success in all its shapes and sizes. Today we want to do just that...

"For the past year I would ask him questions and he would answer with one word...'bien' (good). But over the past month his hand shakes have become stronger, more purposeful and include more eye contact. Today, while harvesting the sweet potatoes we planted together a while back, he turned to me and asked how my day had been. I could not help but respond with a massive smile and say, 'Today has been an incredible day, thanks!' Why has it been such a great day? This small question he asked, is the reason it has been such a great day." - Ryan
