Finca Filadelfia began planting coffee in 1866. As such, they’ve been involved with the Guatemalan coffee industry from the very beginning. This is the perfect place to learn about the ins-and-outs of coffee cultivation in Guatemala. The tour follows the coffee production process from plant to cup.
A friendly, bilingual guide leads this tour. The first stop is the nursery and coffee plantation, where you’ll see coffee plants being grown and lined up in rows. You’ll then journey through the wet mill and the patio for drying, followed by the dry processing and manual sorting area. You’ll also see coffee being roasted and packed.
The tour ends in the cupping area, where you’ll enjoy one of the world’s finest and freshest cups of coffee. You can choose between an Americano and espresso.
Many of our tours and activities offer transportation pick up & drop off options from several locations and destinations. Options vary by tour, see “BOOKING REQUEST” for full details.
Again the guide was knowledgeable and friendly, eager to make sure you understood the whole process. Very good coffee.
