Fabian's coffee farm is just outside of Medellin and is of a good size, so that the entire tour can be made quite compact and still very personable and extremely interesting (about 3 hours). Fabian is a second-generation coffee farmer and is full of enthusiasm for coffee and explains/shows the entire process from the plant to the ground beans (tasting included, of course) very clearly. By the way, he speaks very good English. Our tour guide, Lina, was great too. She picked us up in Medellin and not only knew a lot about coffee herself (her parents grow coffee themselves), but generally spoke a lot and openly about life in Colombia and Medellin. Conclusion: We were traveling with two children (3 & 6 years) and can only recommend this tour!

BOOK IT! Just amazing! We learnt so much and had information that we can really apply to when we're back! Mateo was BRILLIANT, we had a lovely time and this was one of the highlights of our time in Medellin! I was a bit upset when someone in Bogotá said "Medellin" is not part of the main coffee area, but we're glad it isn't - this coffee farm is small and grows their coffee in a healthier ways + shows the actual potential issues withbig producers that you normally wouldn't know! Loved it!

Entire tour was great . Deivy was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable . The best part was actually not even the coffee but the other unique drinks made from the bean . Would definitely recommend

David and Mateo were both excellent tour guides in English. The entire day was super fun and also informative. The horseback riding at the end was great and I would highly recommend it.

Mattaeo & the crew were great, and I never ate and drank so well.
