Coffee & Chocolate Private Tour: Two Farms - One Incredible Experience

This is the perfect tour for you if you like breathtaking sceneries, to be surrounded by nature, off-the-beaten-path destinations and learning about the origin of two of the most consumed drinks in the world: coffee and chocolate.

During this tour you get to visit two different non-touristy farms, one of cacao and one of coffee, both are relatively close to the city and close to each other so you spend most of the time enjoying and learning about the artisanal process of both products.

Taking this tour you learn and participate in all the steps from planting the seeds to packaging. Then you have the chance to customize your chocolate and buying premium quality coffee and chocolate products.

To complement this experience we provide a delicious traditional lunch (included) served in the farm that you eat as you contemplate the stunning views.

But definetly the best of the day is interacting with the warmest farmers in their houses.

    Stop At: Santo Domingo, Antioquia, Colombia

    The day starts at your doorstep when we pick you up. Then we start our journey to north of Medellin, just 1 hour away through beautiful sceneries.

    Once we arrive we are welcomed by Oscar the cacao farmer and he will walk us through the plantation to see the cacao plants in their natural form as well as other natural local products like tangerine trees, coffee plants, plantain trees and more.

    Then we plant cacao seeds to show you the timeline and after that we start picking cacao fruits from the trees.

    Once we've picked enough we head back to the farm for the next step: fermenting.

    To ferment the cacao, we need to cut the fruit and extract the seeds. You also get a chance to try the raw chocolate fruit which is deliciously sweet.

    Once we’ve opened the fruit, we pour the seeds into wooden containers. After fermenting, the cacao then needs to be dried.

    To dry the fermented cacao, we use a green house called Marquesina for around 2 days (depending on the weather).

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Santo Domingo, Antioquia, Colombia

    After drying, the cacao is then ready to be roasted.

    On our farm, we roast the chocolate in a very artisanal way, using a simple pot on a wood fire, that, after stirring it for about 30 minutes, gives it an amazing subtle woody flavor.

    After roasting the cacao beans, we remove the husk and manually separate them.

    Once the beans are husk-free they are ready to be ground and melted.

    At this point, we can add in some natural seeds to give the chocolate different premium flavors.

    Natural flavors we might add include: orange dried-skin, sugar cane, coffee, quinoa and ginger.

    Have an idea for a new chocolate flavor? We're always experimenting with new combinations, so let us know and we'll test it out.

    As a result of the friction from the artisanal grinder, the cacao beans melt, leaving us with our final product: a fresh delicious premium chocolate mixed with your favourite ingredient grown organically in the farm.

    You can buy these products for a very fair price at the farm.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: Copacabana, Antioquia, Colombia

    The coffee tour takes place in a beautiful family farm that produces around 1 ton of coffee a year.

    We will have a traditional delicious lunch to have energy to start learning everything about the coffee production.

    The coffee expert will give you a thorough explanation about the coffee industry to have more context.

    Then we start planting a coffee seed and trying the bean as a fruit, you'll be surprised of how sweet they actually are.

    Later on, we begin to pick some coffee in the plantation and to enjoy the breathtaking views.

    Once the picking is done we need to process it step by step until its roasted and ground.

    We will also have as many cups as you want as we explain where in the mouth you should put the coffee to taste it in a more professional way.

    In conclusion, this Chocolate & Coffee experience is an unforgettable one, full of new friends, delicious organic products and the best memories of your trip in Colombia.
