Plantation outside the city of Antigua - sounds lovely, doesn’t it? However, this is tourism at the lowest possible level. Their so called guided tour, two options available, 11 USD per person for a hundred meters walk, where you learn less than when you read a wikipedia article about coffee, a crap overpriced coffee at the restaurant that tastes like instant coffee in the worst youth hostel, surrounded by a shop full of things probably made in China - if there is a definition of tourist trap, there you have it.

We went to Finca Filadelfia for lunch and it was a great experience. The view from the restaurant was stunning, the staff was attentive, and the food was delicious, especially the chips and guac. We loved it there. Highly recommended!!
Went for a horseback riding tour and lunch

The plantation is very beautiful and surprisingly close to Antigua (just a short cab ride to the north). We enjoyed the horseback riding tour of the grounds and found it hilarious that they name their horses after US Presidents (mine was Jack Kennedy and my wife's was Lyndon Johnson). The trail is pretty narrow and steepish in a couple of places so they don't let you ride alone, but rather with a guide who has rope leads to the horses to help keep them on the path. But it was still enjoyable. We ate at the restaurant and the food and coffee were both good. The views from the property were lovely also. The only negative was that I left my glasses in their case on the table and didn't realize it until after we got back to our hotel. We called and the hotel staff looked for them but they couldn't locate them. I went back the next day to see the staff in person and I could tell by speaking with them that they really did make the effort to find them. A shame that someone picked them up, but it's on me though for leaving them there. Would definitely recommend a visit despite this.
What an amazing expeeince

Enjoyed the coffee tour today and learned of the history of this beautiful estate . The property is so beautiful and serene . The tour is 20 American dollars and well worth it . It is best to call ahead and reserve . They ask for you to show up 15 minutes prior to tour . We were late due to traffic and they easily accomadated us . One learns the process of making he bean as well . Try the honey coffee and Ron zacapa drink at end .. it is worth playing for one can then pick up many items in store including the beans . The hotel looks lovely and I look forward to staying here one night when I return
Great two hour coffee tour! Learned so much.

Did you know coffee predates Jesus? The origin of coffee is Ethiopia where a goat Shepard noticed his goats were eating red berries and becoming energized. He picked some, boiled a bit and drank the coffee realizing he had the same energy and his hyper goats. Then roasted some beans, and loved the aroma.
Arabica is all that’s grown here but there’s many types or subspecies one is Geisha. Won’t share the details let you mind wander on that one 🙄
This is a 4th generation establishment, they have a nice hotel, two restaurants with great food, zip line tours and the coffee tour I took was two hours and $20 USD. The entire plant is shown plus a tasting.
Here’s some info: coffee pickers earn about $7-9 USD per day and pick on average 100 lbs of beans.
The beans are sold green they don’t roast here. Top buyers in order are Starbucks, Japan and Taiwan. They sell on average $3.00 USD/pound.
Starbucks charges anywhere from $10-15.00 per pound. Of course this is after shipping, roasting, packaging and transporting.
Thanks for reading!
