Historical Coffee Plantation on Puerto Rico


The Hacienda Buena Vista Coffee Plantation is located near the city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. Originally built in the mid 1800's, many of the buildings on the plantation have been restored and, at times, are open for guided tours. In addition to seeing some of the furnished buildings, you are taken on a walk to see the waterfall that operates some of the coffee-making machinery. Water flows from the fall, through an aquaduct and into the coffee mill.

Have you ever driven around the island of Puerto Rico?

During 2016, we rented a car so that we could venture outside of Old Town San Juan in Puerto Rico. We had read about Hacienda Buena Vista near Ponce, and added it as a stop on our driving tour. The hacienda is a great historical site that is home to a coffee plantation museum. We enjoyed the tour of the plantation, its processes and the manor house. We were actually able to see the steps involved in processing coffee - drying, winnowing, cleaning, roasting, grinding, etc.
