  • This place is great for anyone who loves to cook and is curious about how their spices come to be. Joshua was an excellent host who took me around the garden to show me the befores and after of ginger, cacao, coffee, pepper, turmeric, cardamom, nutmeg and so much more. Place was a little confusing to find - follow google until it says you're there (there's a small shop on the right)and there's a sign pointing towards the garden 60m down a winding gravel road. Follow that road.
  • Don't go there, they are thiefs! Everything is too expensive, overpriced and products what they are selling is waste like for example vanilla, if there is two drops of real vanilla inside it's good.
