Coffee Tour in Medellin
Visit an authentic, family-owned coffee farm and learn the the process of Colombia's largest export. In this complete tour, Medellin VIP takes you to a traditional coffee farm that has opened its doors to visitors (from over 100 countries) so they can learn the process and understand the difference between a delicious freshly brewed cup of joe and Dunkin Donuts.
The thousands of tourists that fly down to Colombia each year know that Colombia grows some of the world's best coffee and all want to see why. So instead of taking a stroll around the various boutique coffee shops, why not skip the lines and get dirty in the fields? Pick your own coffee beans, peel, wash and brew them yourself as you learn the history of coffee in Colombia and how it has provided jobs and living for thousands of families.
Although coffee is famous throughout the country, the state of Antioquia (of which Medellin is the capital) is famous for growing some of the finest beans in the world. So support a local business whislt learning the steps of the coffee making process with this complete tour.
The trip begins early in the morning (to avoid the midday sun) and begins with a tour of the estate as well as meeting the family. We take a stroll through the coffee plantation as the farm manager explains origins and shows us how to identify the 3 different types of beans. We then learn how to wash and dry the green, odorless beans that will, very shortly, become the substance that keeps us sane in the first few hours of the day.
All of this is done while we behold the spectacular scenery before us. The perfect daytime tour for the entire family. We promise you’ll never look at coffee the same again and we guarantee you’ll definitely get pickier with your morning cup of joe.
