Coffee Farm Tour PhotoCoffee Farm Tour Photo

Guatemala produces some of the best coffee in the world. On this tour, you’ll visit a coffee farm outside La Antigua to learn about the history and production of coffee in Guatemala.

Have you ever wondered how coffee is produced? Do you sip the stuff every morning but have no idea what a coffee plant even looks like? If so, then this tour may be right for you.

During this guided tour you’ll explore a Guatemalan coffee plantation. The tour starts with a visit to the nursery, which is where the coffee seedling is selected. You’ll learn about how the seedling is transferred to the plantation and how the plants are grown, pruned, and eventually harvested. As you walk alongside the rows of coffee plants, look closely at the cherries that hide the bean inside. Your guide will teach you how the beans are collected and how shade-grown coffee works.

You’ll then visit the wet mill, which is where the coffee beans are de-pulped, fermented, and washed. After the wet mill comes the dry mill, where the final process of extracting the coffee bean occurs. You’ll then learn about how different types of coffee are separated and discover the packaging and exporting process.

This tour ends, as it should, with a deliciously fresh cup of coffee. The whole tour lasts 3 hours.
