We have taken many cultural tours in Colombia and this is definitely one of the very best! It is exactly what we would hope for but wouldn’t dear expect, truly exceeded expectations!
It is basically a guided tour to an organic, small scale coffee plantation where they explain step by step the entire process behind our favorite hot drink; even more so, it gets practical and you get to farm a bit of coffee yourself and then precess it throughout the steps to make it ready to drink.
Attention to detail was heartwarming as the hosts make sure to provide hats, ponchos, mosquito repellant -not that there were really many mosquitos- in order to ensure a pleasant experience.
The coffee tasting and conversation about different varieties and ways to make coffee are both interesting and useful as they share plenty tips for guests to prepare better coffee at home.
The group was very small, which makes the experience more intimate and friendly, the breakfast and lunch are fresh and authentic and our guide Andrea was super friendly and cool!
Absolutely marvelous experience and very close to Bogota, I would definitely recommend to all tourists instead of mass-touristic tours to the known coffee zone!

The real deal! The tour was amazing and everyone made us feel welcome and very comfortable. Guide was fluent in English and Spanish! Teenagers enjoyed the experience and we have a whole new appreciation for the coffee bean. Learn about organic techniques to keep chemicals out of the drinking water and the appreciation the farm has for not only coffee, but the land and ecosystem. Highly recommend!

I had an excellent time during this coffee tour and got right hands on with the coffee farmer. After being picked up in the city, we left for the mountains and visited the Paramo - where Andrea explained about some local plants and the importance of the area.

We continued our way to the Coffee Farm of Marcela - a s mall bio certified plantation with only 8000 trees. We had lovely fresh breakfast with fruit and eggs, some Juice and Coffee.

We planted a coffee tree, harvested some beans, processed them, dried them and enjoyed previous once roasted.

Ending with a home-cooked lunch by her Mom. The tour was great, the guide really knowledeable, all tried to speak Spanish in a very slow way.

I really enjoyed this day.

The transport bus broke down and we had to wait more than 2 hours for 2 cars to show up. They cramped us 3 people in the back seat on a medium size car for the 1+ hour drive. Andrea and the coffee plantation was great but the transport was terrible and no stops along the way to see the scenery of Bogota as they advertised on the tour package. Tour only lasted 4 hours and not worth the $98.00 they charge for it.

This was a great experience for anyone who loves coffee and even for those who don't care about coffee at all. It's about an hour drive from Bogota to the small town of Choachi and it's an amazing view the entire drive. Colombia is one of the most beautiful places I've visited and this gives you the ability to see all the beauty that the country has to offer. The farm experience is just as amazing. Sipping on freshly ground, organic coffee overlooking the mountains was just what we needed. It was extremely relaxing and super informational. I didn't realize the work/effort that went into making one cup of coffee. Alejandro was our tour guide and he was excellent. He was able to translate everything Marcella (coffee farmer who is the nicest human being and all around great host - we loved her too) said and was also able to throw in his own knowledge of the area and of the coffee growing process. I highly recommend this trip to anyone and everyone regardless whether you drink coffee.

We met our guide Cristian at a local coffee shop then headed up into the mountains towards the coffee farms. We finally arrived at La Campensina Farms where we spent the entire day learning hands on how to pick and peel coffee beans and talked about the fermenting and roasting process. The woman who runs the farm, Claudia Marcela, taught us so much about the ins and outs of what it takes to run her organic farm, all about coffee beans down to her organic soil. She also has some lovely rescue dogs who help her on the farm. So if you’re a dog person It’s definitely a plus. It was one of the best experiences during our time in Bogota (about 1 1/2hrs away from city) it was nice to get a break from the chaos of the city and spend some peaceful time in the country on the farm.

We had a wonderful day at the coffee farm, accompanied by its campesina proprietor, Marcela, her assistants, and our guide, Alejandro. We had a lovely breakfast overlooking the gorgeous valley surrounding the farm, then put on our ponchos and sombreros and walked through the farm, learning all about the process of planting, growing, harvesting and roasting the coffee beans. Afterwards we sat for an incredible lunch (with all ingredients being sourced from the farm) and (of course) a few cups of delicious coffee. This was an amazing experience all around - from the gorgeous scenery, to the fascinating information, to the wonderful company - and I would highly recommend it to anybody visiting Bogota.

What an incredible and memorable experience. One to last a life time. Nicolas was our tour guide - and the best one at that! He’s extremely friendly, helpful and thorough. Right from the beginning it felt like a circle of friends and it was him who led this pact to an amazing coffee farm owned by Marcella. Marcella - a beautiful woman full of passion led us through an unforgettable experience walking us through the process and teaching us about the coffee making. All throughout Nicolas was by our side providing us the English translation in the same passion as Marcella did in Spanish. We learned, picked our own beans, ate, drank amazing coffee and laughed a ton! A day to cherish! Thank you Nicolas and Marcella for everything! Best way to spend a day!!!

When the tour began Marcella, the campesina, said that this would be a lifechanging experience. We had a life before the coffeetour and another one after the tour, and she is right. What an amazing day. Marcella is a passionate campesina and Nick, our guide, the perfect person to accompany us through this day and translate everything she told us. We had a wonderful day and we will never look at coffee the same. This tour is really a must for everyone, if you are a coffeelover or not.

Short version: Just book it!

Longer version:
The whole experience is amazing. All the people involved are super passionate and friendly. Andrea, the guide, is an amazing person with vast knowledge on coffee and she will help you with translation and she will make the tour engaging for you. Marcella & Karen who work in the plantation, which by the way is ran by women (Karen is the 4th generation), are so empowering, smart and do a very well structured tour. You will be able to learn about every step of the coffee production and collection, and you will yourself try them.
The food and beverages they provide throughout the day is clean and authentic as they are produced with no chemicals at all.
This is the whole idea around the farm; sustainable/organic and ethical farming. These kinds of initiatives need to be supported by everyone. Skip the touristic places and join this tour. Buy your coffee there and enjoy the day in a beautiful plantation.

(Meeting point and transportation are also convenient)
