The tour was really cool, we managed to pick a date where only our group of 4 people were visiting this tour. I did not have any idea that producing organic coffee could be such a hustle, really appreciate work that coffee producers do more now and I definitely have more respect for good cup of coffee. Our guide Nick was awesome, he showed us some landscape on the way to the farm and explained how this part of nature ecosystem works in the mountains and introduced us to some cool plants. The coffee farm owner Marcela (apology if I miss-spelled) was so energetic, shows us her farm, made Us delicious breakfast and Lunch and gave us opportunity to work as a coffee picker and guided us through all processes Which includes growing organic coffee and processes after picking the coffee berries. Definitely recommend this tour, one of most memorable experiences in Colombia for me. Thanks Nick and Marcela and Marcelas young assistant :)
Approximately two hours drive from pick-up. It's not exactly short, but through an interesting landscape. Unfortunately the driver only spoke Spanish; but made an effort to speak slowly and clearly (which is not exactly common in Colombia). The coffee plantation tour (English) was very good and interesting, and we learned pretty much everything about coffee from first planting to drinking. At the end there was a small tasting of coffee and coffee liqueurs with a shop. The planned lunch (on your own account) was in order in terms of price and quality.
It was an easy process. Booking was easy, communicating with the team the night prior was easy and meeting up and enjoying the experience was easy. If I travel to Bogota again, I would definitely book another experience with this team. Also, the lunch spot was fantastic.
I was an excellent trip, the guide was well informed and knowledgeable.
The guide was amazing and for sure the landscape worth it!
