There is no cloakroom as such, however there is a rack in a separate area, where visitors leave their outdoor clothing. Right at the entrance is the ticket office, where macho cashier sells tickets. The right wall from the entrance is decorated with photos and coffee facts. Here you can also see a glass stand, where coffee beans in jars and other coffee accessories are kept.

There are framed photos of coffee beans picking, processing and transportation, maps, showing places of different coffee varieties vegetation and packing.
