You wouldn’t be visiting Colombia if you weren’t the least bit interested in coffee, would you? Today, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and head out for an authentic experience on an actual working coffee finca (farm) located 1 1/2 hours from the city. This is an ideal coffee tour that does not require you to travel long distances. Along the way, you’ll pass through Antioquia’s gorgeous green landscape that has been so hospitable to the coffee plant. At the finca you’ll learn the entire process of making coffee, from the plant to the cup. You’ll also get an understanding of daily life on Colombian coffee cooperatives still producing coffee in a traditional and fair way.
The coffee finca you’ll visit is very typical of many small family-run businesses in Colombia who produce an exclusive coffee that, of course, you will get to taste. Just as importantly, you’ll learn to brew the perfect cup at home and even have an opportunity to purchase straight from the source. After an educational hands-on experience during a tour of the grounds, you’ll enjoy a traditional lunch made with love.
