Palmitas is arguably Medellin’s sweetest, safest, and most rural suburban town. Its people live life at a slow pace, and are extremely friendly and welcoming. On this tour in Palmitas, you will learn all about the production of coffee, from picking the coffee beans, to drying and roasting them, until you can finally drink the smooth, fruity-but-acidic liquid.
You will also be surrounded by stunning green landscapes, where you can appreciate the rolling hills and the snaking Cauca river, with the Andes as its backdrop. With this panorama surrounding you, you will see how the coffee beans are dried out in the sun, and you can fully appreciate all the work that goes into your morning cuppa. We even include lunch, where you can sample the local cuisine, all locally-sourced and seasonal.
We will make sure you have enough free time to take pictures, buy souvenirs (freshly picked and roasted coffee, anyone?) before we take you back to your accommodation in Medellin in a private air-conditioned vehicle. This is truly a unique experience to connect with locals and learn an ancient tradition, not to mention trying some of the best coffee beans in the world!
