Full description

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.

It isn't a working plantation, so be prepared for that. It is more of a tourist information type of tour. The tour was fine, lunch was great, and the coffee tastings were very good. It was a bit difficult to understand our guide, and it didn't start on time. ENSURE you wear comfortable shoes, there are some short, but very narrow and steep, hills you climb. Other than that, it was worth what I paid.

The tour was amazing. Ana Maria gave a us a lit of information about the process of making coffee. We have more knowledge that we can apply at home to buy and make better coffee. There is a short but steep hill to climb to get to the site, but it was worth it for the views from the mountains. The driver was also very nice and picked us up from our Airbnb and drove us to the activity. Would recommend for anyone who wants to learn more about coffee.

This was an awesome experience. The tour guide kept us well informed and the pickup was very punctual. The coffee tour experience was fun and educational. We opted to go on the horseback riding tour after the coffee tour which was also a fun experience. Served lunch and tastings were great.
