Medellín: Coffee Tour With Tastings and Lunch

1. Medellín: Coffee Tour With Tastings and Lunch

Head out to San Sebastián de Palmitas, just 45 minutes from Medellín, to begin your unique coffee tour. After hotel pick-up, set off for a coffee-making farm and enjoy listening to a brief history about the origin of the coffee and how it was first brought to Colombia. Take the chance to dress in the typical costume of the paisa muleteer, including hat, poncho, paruma, and the tail of a rooster. Later, move on to a coffee plantation to carry out the coffee harvest, reducing the mixture to a pulp and finally, drying it. After these activities, sit down for a refreshing drink of musilago (coffee juice) and a tea made from the coffee pulp. Savor a typical dish from the region made of banana with honey and cheese. Hear your guide explain some techniques on how to prepare and drink coffee and have a short tasting of different coffees and servings. Later, try a typical dish of the paisa muleteer consisting of rice, yuca, ground beef, boiled egg, sausage, and banana. Try preparing your coffee to your own taste with the information you have just learned from your guide. Finally, receive a pack of coffee as a gift and have the chance to buy farm products at the shop. If the option is chosen, also experience a 2-hour horseback ride through the farm to some viewpoints. All instructions will be given to inexperienced riders.

BOOK IT! Just amazing! We learnt so much and had information that we can really apply to when we're back! Mateo was BRILLIANT, we had a lovely time and this was one of the highlights of our time in Medellin! I was a bit upset when someone in Bogotá said "Medellin" is not part of the main coffee area, but we're glad it isn't - this coffee farm is small and grows their coffee in a healthier ways + shows the actual potential issues withbig producers that you normally wouldn't know! Loved it!

Entire tour was great . Deivy was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable . The best part was actually not even the coffee but the other unique drinks made from the bean . Would definitely recommend

David and Mateo were both excellent tour guides in English. The entire day was super fun and also informative. The horseback riding at the end was great and I would highly recommend it.

It was great, fun and easy. The place was absolutely beautiful, the coffee wonderful, the people lovely. Wonderful experience, we learned a lot.

Mattaeo & the crew were great, and I never ate and drank so well.
