Starting in Pereira you’ll be transferred to Salento where you’ll meet your new best four-legged friend and start this incredible tour with a relaxed horse ride down the mountainside. Once you’ve arrived at the mountain base you’ll follow a track along a river until you come to the entrance of the best coffee Finca in the Zona Cafetera.
This is one of the best coffee tours in Colombia and so very unique. The reason being the philosophy of this single lady owner. She has created a Finca that is completely pesticide and machinery-free. Every part of the entire process is done by hand and with this, you’ll discover the traditional methods of growing the perfect coffee bean.
You’ll get to explore this wonderful Coffee Finca and find so much more than just coffee is grown here, such as a large variety of fruits as well.
You’ll learn the complete process from the seed to the cup, including handpicking a few beans yourself. As well as this you’ll also enjoy sampling and “cupping” the coffee. Which is the technic to discover the aromas, flavors, acidity, and other characteristics of the coffee bean.
Following this fantastico all-encompassing coffee experience, including a wonderful homemade Paella and Sangria, you’ll prepare for your ride back to Salento. But for this trip, you’ll be sitting in or standing on the back of one of the true workhorses of the coffee zone; a Willys Jeep.
You’ll be taken back into Salento where you’ll enjoy a guided walking tour of this beautiful mountain top town, before relaxing in your personal transport for your ride back to Pereira and a wonderful evening in the Zona Cafetera.
