In addition to the popular coffee tour, which you get the chance to visit the coffee plantation and learn the process of coffee production, the coffee tasting tour was one of the highlights of my visit to Antigua.

Our tours were the Pacaya trip with private transport and the school/doll making class which we were happily surprised to learn included a chicken bus ride!

Our favorite lodging out of 4 places - Peaceful & Delicious
Eduardo invited us to his house where his charismatic and adorable wife Franziska roasted the coffee beans for us.
Hernando taught us a lot of the plants and Julio was an excellent translator.
