Detailed Description

Your ultimate coffee tour of Colombia explores the distinct connection between the biodiversity of the Andes Mountains and cultivating coffee by sustainable practices that support the environment and local communities. Delve deep into the coffee growing experience in Colombia. You will follow the movement of the cherished drink as it travels from seed to cup. You also learn how coffee has affected the different farming communities across the Antioquia, home to the famed city of Medellin. The revelatory journey begins with your arrival at the international airport in Medellin, where your private transfer greets you at customs and escorts you to a gorgeous hotel in view of the city’s bustling streets and magnificent mountains. Enjoy the unique city at your leisure. You can traverse the Metrocable for panoramic views or stroll through the Plaza Botero to spend time with the works of the famous Colombian artist.

Venture into the mountains outside of Medellin to uncover the marvels of coffee and the specific type of climate needed to cultivate the various types of beans. San Cayetano began producing coffee over 120 years ago and hosts the roots of Colombia’s commercial coffee industry. You learn about proprietary blends, discover the delectable aromas, and relax in the luxuries of the property that overlooks the rolling peaks of the lush mountain range more than 3,000 feet above sea level. The town of Jerico contains a quiet charm as it is the home of Colombia’s only canonized saint. The tranquil and beautiful ambiance represents the idyllic villages of the region. Outside of Jerico stands a fascinating café and laboratory that roasts the beans for many of the plantations in the area. Take your time to find the specific aromas that emanate from the various varieties and learn how to taste the fabulous flavors of properly brewed coffee.

The future of coffee requires more than just flavor alone, which you discover in Roldan, a leader in research to improve Colombian coffee quality. Enjoy exclusive access to the farm as you learn about the local studies that focus on the environment and family farms that minimize soil use. You will also find coffee exudes the scent of mandarin oranges and tamarind. At Cocondo, you will uncover what it takes to produce quality coffee on a 100 percent organic farm, such as the reuse of coffee shells for natural fertilizer. You will relish a hike through the mountainous terrain, find an organic honey station, and sample a homemade coffee grounds and coconut facial scrub as you exfoliate your skin at a natural spring.
