This coffee tour & spa is something you MUST do if you are in the Medellin area! It was absolutely worth it! We learnt so much about the coffee process - it was extremely informative! The view from the coffee farm is SPECTACULAR! The spa was great too. Following the relaxing massage, we had coffee tasting too. We were demonstrated different methods of making the coffee and we had the chance to taste them all. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and attentive. What made this even more special was the fact that you get a certificate for completing the coffee tour course. That was awesome! It is a very hands-on experience as you get to do everything from scratch. Don’t think about it, just book it!

Nuestro guia Sr. Marlon es excelente, su labor fue muy profesional. Es una personal amigable y mostró tener total conocimiento acerca de la historia de La Hacienda Napoles. El lugar es muy bueno para visitar con la familia.

The coffee plantation is beautiful, they are so knowledgeable about coffee. I will appreciate every cup of coffee I drink moving forward. The lunch was amazing and the drinks. Highly recommend.

Such an insightful experience! We learnt so much and really enjoyed the whole time we spent at the farm. Thank you so much for the delicious food and coffee!

Amazing experience! Absolutely loved it - worth every penny.
