This Medellín Coffee tour is for those people who are interested in enjoying the most magnificent coffee scenery and learning about the details of the coffee process from coffee berries to parchment coffee and from green coffee to roasted coffee beans. Please note that this is a LandVenture Travel exclusive tour since no other tour company is authorized to visit this plantation. In other words, the coffee scenery and experience offered during this tour is not offered by any other coffee tour from Medellín.
The town of Concordia is a town in northwestern’s Colombia coffee region with extraordinary landscape and is easily accessible from Medellín. The almost 2-hour drive through the Central Andes mountains to Concordia will take us on a scenic road to our first destination, a large coffee plantation with panoramic views of the surrounding farms, the magnificent cordilleras and the Cauca River. We will have the opportunity to tour the farm and drive by thousands of coffee plants as we make our way to a panoramic viewpoint that overlooks the entire valley and farm below. You will also have the opportunity to buy freshly roasted export-quality coffee straight from the source, beans or ground.
During the tour, you will learn about the entire process of growing, harvesting and processing a coffee bean and will see first-hand what it takes to transform ripe coffee cherries to the finest cups of coffee in the world. This will certainly give you a deeper perspective of why Colombian coffee competes with the best coffees in the world such as Kona Coffee, Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee and Kopi Luwak.
Depending on the tour scheduling, we may have lunch at a restaurant near the Cauca River or a traditional lunch at a nearby farm, either on the way back to Medellín or before visiting the farm.
At the end of this tour you will have learned about what goes into the cultivation of Colombia’s most important agricultural product and we guarantee that after this experience, you will savior your morning cup of coffee a little more and appreciate the farmer’s admirable efforts in making it happen.
