A short 15-minute Tuk Tuk ride from Colombia’s most beautiful town; Barichara, you’ll find a coffee plantation in the middle of a dry tropical forest. Once here you’ll enjoy a 2-hour leisurely walking tour of this beautiful estate. Along the way you’ll uncover the process of planting, nurturing, and harvesting the coffee, which occurs twice a year. During this part of the tour, you’ll find yourself strolling under a canopy of wonderful Guamos and Galapos trees, along with some 100-year-old Caracolis trees, where you’ll be pausing, and embracing to feel the amazing energy of these centurions filling your body.
By this stage you’ll be starting to build up a thirst, so you’ll be stopping at the mil to enjoy a wonderful fresh juice, made from fresh fruit just picked from the farm. You’ll then continue your tour with a coffee tasting, paired with some Caprichara goat cheese, some wonderful sourdough and artisan bread freshly made in Barichara, and our homemade Mandarin desert. Which has to be tried to be believed!
Next, it’s onto learning the secrets to the best organic compost, which is a must when growing the best coffee in the world. Your guide will also explain to you more of the complete coffee process including the washing, de-pulping, and drying of the beans.
To complete your tour, and before you enjoy your Tuk Tuk ride back to Barichara, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase some of the artisan coffee you have just learned about, along with some freshly made seasonal jams.
