The visit starts at a point that shows the dimension of the planning with which the farm was built. From this point we are able to see, to the left, the dam which kept the water used to run the machinery, by means of a water wheel, and to the right the machinery shed, where coffee and rice were processed and where corn was milled. In front of us we see the retaining wall that goes around the terraces and where dirt was deposited in order to produce a landfill, on top of which the farmhouse, the church and the terraces were built. Later on, the building with the big chimney was built to house a steam engine. This machine used water from the dam and wood from the property. This observation spot is on top of a bridge, under which a stream formed by the surplus of water runs out the dam. A few yards inside the gate there is another canal whose water moved the machines and was later directed to this stream.
During the tour, we will be able to follow the coffee path, from harvesting to processing and from there to loading and shipping, but we will go backwards. The point where we are now was used to load oxen carts with coffee that were then sent to Santa Gertrudes Rail Station, around which the town of Santa Gertrudes developed, to be exported to Europe.
