La Bonifière

A historic mill today serves as the largest coffee grinder on the island. The property dates back to 1760 and although tours are currently on hold, visitors are still welcome to stop by and explore on their own.


Coffee and chocolate are the two main products created here. You can view the chocolate workshop as well as learn about local coffee traditions and the processes it takes to make both.

Staying Close

La Bonifière is located in Saint Claude, meaning visitors to this area of Guadeloupe will have easy access to this museum throughout their trip. The area around the museum remains relatively quiet, particularly since there are so few lodging options in the vicinity.
