Volunteer on a coffee farm
You don’t mind to jump into rain boots for some days and getting your hands dirty? You’re flexible when it comes to working hours and daily structures? You like animals and are ready to take over some responsibilities within our project? Last but not least – you’re happy to connect to coffee plants instead of your WIFI? Then you might be the perfect match for long-term volunteering here and we are happy to receive your personal application. — More info coming soon, get in contact with us for further questions.
Our main goal is for you to integrate into the small community, that’s why we request a stay of at least 3 weeks. As a farm we don’t demand any working hours. It’s up to you to see how you make this integration happen. The coffee farm, garden and animals can be a way to do it, but so can cooking, teaching, talking, playing games,… We’ll be there guiding you on your path of course. — Find out more by clicking on the image above.
COMING SOON: You feel addressed when reading through our volunteering programs but no time left for a 3 weeks escape from busy daily life? No worries, we’ve put in place some experiences – happening on the farm or in the official coffee school – that give you a deeper insight into the culture in a shorter visit (half a day to a couple of days).

On the farm there are chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys and guinea hens, also 2 dogs and 5 cats, we're establishing a fish pond. In the future we’re looking to establish a pen for goats, maybe get a cow too so we're started growing the food. We're getting ready to have some beehives on the farm too, but first we need to have the enough flowers all over the farm year round.
Building two rooms in adobe, a footbridge over a small creek, a floor in the main house, another covered drying area,...
