Full description
Head to Buenos Aires farm, a family-owned coffee plantation, just a couple of minutes away from downtown Salento to begin your unique coffee tour. Take the chance to dress in the typical costume of the paisa muleteer, including hat and poncho. Enjoy listening to the history of the origin of the coffee and how it was first brought to Colombia.

Start off this adventure and actually plant a coffee tree and participate at the beginning of the coffee life cycle. From there, you will move on to a coffee plantation to carry out the harvest and learn how to pick the right beans. In the meantime, while walking the plantations, there will be spectacular views and a couple of lookouts where you can take amazing pictures.

After some time in the plantations, it's time to go back to the farmhouse area where you will extract the pulp of the beans that you harvested. Enjoy a nice break before continuing and savor a cup of lemonade and a traditional snack. 

Get back to discovering the processes of the coffee where you will be presented with the drying, the organizing, and finally the selection of the beans that will go into the packaging. Learn the protocols for the preparation of a special infused coffee and be involved in the preparation and later in the tasting.  

Witness what is known as one of the best coffees in the world, and have the chance to buy farm products at the shop. Best of all, have the option that includes a pack of coffee for you to take home.
