Said to be one of the country’s oldest plantations, Old Kent Estates was established by a British planter in the 1800s and grows both arabica and robusta coffee. The bushes are shaded under a two-tier canopy made up of rosewood, silver oak and cluster-fig trees, some of them over 100 years old.

In addition, one can also learn wbout different brewing techniques and latte art.
