Medellin Express Coffee Tour
For those that have limited time but would still like to visit a coffee farm and learn about coffee production, LandVenture Travel offers an express coffee tour right on the outskirts of Medellin. This tour will take you into the hills overlooking Medellin where you will learn about the entire coffee cultivation process - from germination, to planting, picking, de-pulping, washing and drying. However, depending on the time of the year and time of the day, not all processes will be available to see while we're there since they have strict schedules to follow to ensure the highest possible quality. At the end we will enjoy a cup of the world´s finest coffee straight from its source and then travel to a beautiful overlook to take in the views of the city below us.
