For five years, we had tours to the hacienda but it’s no longer practical. My main joy is showing people this slice of Mexico that I’ve been indulging in for almost 10 years. Sunset Magazine did a terrific job in capturing the food, the people and the passion of heirloom beans. I’m really thankful. And these sweet photos are a lovely souvenir of a great couple of days with my pals, old and new.
