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.

Medellín: Authentic Colombian Horseback Ride

2. Medellín: Authentic Colombian Horseback Ride

Enjoy the Medellín mountains on horseback and take in the fresh air of nature on this 4.5-hour guided excursion with a professional horse handler. Before mounting your new majestic friend, you’ll first be introduced by your handler. You’ll see that your horse is just as excited as you are to go for a ride: maybe even more so.   A long, winding country road climbing a mountain gets you comfortable riding. Then, after a quick cool-off at a hidden waterfall, the real ride begins. Explore the lush jungle in the Colombian countryside before heading back to the stable. When you return, your handler will help you give your new friend a good shower after a good workout.

BOOK THIS TOUR NOW! I expected an okay tour but they blew my expectations out of the water! Not only did we learn about coffee, but we left with skills like how to make the perfect cup, how to compare coffees abs choose the healthiest options, and the proper way to drink coffee for the best flavor profile. In addition, we picked coffee and walked through the whole coffee making process (before roasting) on the farm. The tour guides were super 9, funny, and down to take countless photos for your IG. we also had a traditional lunch that was pretty tasty as well! And to top it all off, I opted for the scenic horseback ride. As an inexperienced rider, I got a little scared at times, but there were multiple staff to help us out, and even guide my horse for me at times. I felt completely safe thanks to them. And again they were there to snap memorable shots during this unique experience! I can’t recommend this tour enough and i’m so grateful to have had Carlos and Mateo as tour guides!

As a coffee lover I learned so much about the quality of coffee and what to look for in a good coffee. Even how to male the best cup of coffee. Our tour guide Mateo was so friendly and was extremly knowledgeable about the whole coffee process.

Great experience, very interesting and fun at the same time. We dis the coffee tour and the horse back riding. I recommend to do both experiences. The guides are very knowledgeable and very friendly

Great half day trip with good coffee and Mateo is good at telling about farming and coffee. It can also be recommended to extend with the horsetrip in the surroundings

Geweldige tour! Echt vriendelijke mensen en je krijgt de beste uitleg over koffie. Aanrader, ook met kinderen.
