Description

With just a 2-hour drive outside of Bogotá, the weather gets warmer, and an awarded high-quality coffee is grown carefully among steep mountains, dense forests, and low-flying clouds. La Palma & El Tucán, not only produces top-notch coffee but they also benefit coffee-growing families nearby, supporting fair-trade and eco-farming. 

You will be driven from a meeting point right into the countryside through the plains of Bogotá's Savannah. As you reach the destination, you will feel a slight change in temperature; a few degrees warmer and some MASL lower which open the possibility of coffee growing close to the big city. Among lush green mountains and slow-paced clouds, you will enter La Palma & El Tucán, going through their specialty coffee plantations until you reach the coffee bar area. You will be received with a warm, fresh and aromatic welcome: a special coffee brewed carefully to highlight the exquisite flavors of Colombian Coffee.

After enjoying your coffee and being introduced to the place, you will be taken to witness the different stages of the coffee process. Starting with the seeds, moving on to transplantation, crops, and harvest you will get in touch with nature and learn about different coffee species and the factors that make Colombian special coffee so valuable. Continuing through the plantations you will enter the coffee lab where you will get to know coffee tasting facts and learn to differ and recognize the many flavors present in this beverage with an interactive approach. Moving on, you will visit the machinery behind the process and learn the steps needed to turn recently picked coffee beans into the coffee you see packaged on the markets. 

Finally, you will be taken to take a delicious lunch prepared with many ingredients found in the fields. Afterward, you can enjoy one last coffee as you solve your doubts and learn more from our knowledgeable guide before returning to Bogotá.

Important information

How this tour creates an impact

La Palma y el Tucán is not only a breathtakingly beautiful place to develop a deep understanding of coffee but is also a community-driven social project. By selling their coffee, called neighbors & crops, they support smaller, neighboring coffee farmers. Often smaller coffee producers struggle to create a sustainable business around commercializing their product. La Palma y el Tucán offers a solution to this problem by taking over the logistics of distributing and processing the coffee so that farmers can focus on the quality of their product. 

This tour is part of our HEART experiences.
