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 was fun and I learned a lot. The views were beautiful! It was my first time horseback riding and I was terrified. I wanted to get off right when we first started but our guide helped me relax and I was glad I didn’t quit! If you don’t eat pork bring something to eat. There was a sausage on top of the food and even though I took the sausage off, I think some of the juices from the pork saved into the rest of my food all wrapped up together and my stomach was sick for the rest of my trip. That was my fault though. I knew better . It was delicious though ‍♀️. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Let me just begin by telling you that Don Carlos is one of the most genuine person you will meet on this tour. You will learn so much and go back home as a coffee snob..he will teach you the ways and you would be amaze what you’ve been drinking is not the best coffee you thought. Be ready and enjoy this tour absolutely would recommend and I will return for sure!

This coffee tour was amazing. I would definitely do it again. Celene is amazing and so humble & kind. She makes you feel at home. I just fell in love with Paisa people. The coffee was amazing and I learned so much about coffee. I definitely recommend it 100% And Johnny who picked us up from our Hotel is an awesome guy he told us great stories about Medellín on our way to the coffee tour. Don Carlos gave us the greatest horseback ride tour. It was my first time and at first it was scary but Don Carlos was so patient and I just loved it at the end. Awesome tour!! Awesome people!! Love the coffee!!
