[VIDEO] Coffee Farm Tour

Maybe it’s the barista in me still, but when I hear Colombia, I think coffee. So visiting a coffee farm was an absolute must-do while we were in Medellin. We went on the Coffee Farm Tour with Toucan Cafe & Tours and would absolutely recommend them if you’re ever in the area.

The tour took us (on a small bus on a very winding road) an hour-and-a-half away from Medellin into the tropical hillside forests of the Antioquia region of Colombia.

We were welcomed to the family-owned farm of Cafe de la Cima, which has been in the family for four generations. They cooked us homemade breakfast, took us into the coffee fields, showed us how coffee is harvested and prepared, made us a traditional Colombian lunch, and then lead a coffee tasting experience.

We ran into some rough weather on the way home, but it only made the experience even more memorable.

We truly had the very best time and left with a new appreciation for the work and love that pours into every single cup of coffee.

How fun and beautiful! When we were in Colombia we were told that coffee that Colombian's drink is actually not good because they export all the good coffee and keep the bad coffee. Do you feel that is true after visiting various coffee shops? Did they touch on that at all?

They did!! They talked a lot about that through the different stages of picking and preparing the beans, they'd be like "this is a bad one, so we'd drink that in Colombia!" haha! They said to go to the smaller, local coffee shops and get the small batch coffee which is the only way to get the good coffee in Colombia. I think some are better than others. When I compared the good to the bad, I could definitely tell the difference!
