    We need someone who can learn to roast and package coffee. There might be days when we plant or harvest and need help as well. You will have an opportunity to meet many local people, learn or practice spanish and learn where and how that morning cup of coffee comes into being. Helping with cooking is always welcome ! This is a wonderful opportunity to learn and to be involved in a community. We will pay a salary for 8 hour work days.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    PLEASE understand. When we host you and when most places host, you are going to their business. You are very often going to be working in some capacity that helps them make a living. If you agree to arrive on a certain day, or to stay for a certain amount of time. MEET THAT COMMITMENT !! If you change dates, or simply do not arrive you hurt the hosts. Be considerate.

    We have hosted a number of volunteers. About 15. We have had a couple of bad experiences and great many very good experiences and a few exceptional experiences. We ask people not to leave feedback and we do not leave feedback. Because a particular person had a bad experience with us, or us with them does not mean that may not fit perfectly with other hosts. Someone another host had a bad time with might fit perfectly here. We are open and honest hosts, but not every visit is awesome. But let"s try based on you and us and not on someone else"s experiences.
