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.

Loved this coffee tour! Being on the actual farm, all the history and facts you learn, and trying on traditional clothing was all great. The coffee itself is delicious! I highly recommend this coffee tour when visiting Medellín!

We had the nicest time, the people were so friendly, the tour (in English) was very interesting, and the farm is stunning. The transport provided there and back was also very straight forward and accomodating.

It was a great trip with the views of the city and country side. It was a small coffee it’s unclear if they are all this size but it was a good tour. They made it fun. And great friendly people.

Este tour es muy recomendado para amantes del café. Te muestran la historia y también detallan la cosecha y preparación del café.

Learned a lot about the coffee picking and making process. Horseback ride was nice too.
