Full description
Your experience will begin as you are picked up from your hotel and taken to the neighborhood of Laureles. It is an artsy and green area famous for its numerous parks, restaurants, design stores, and enormous trees. To start, you will taste a delicious tropical coconut frappuccino at a Mediterranean-style coffee shop that also offers Turkish preparation methods. If a frappuccino isn't your thing, Turkish coffee is recommended.

You will continue walking through the neighborhood and make a stop at a coffee shop recognized for both its Aeropress coffee method and for working together with coffee farmers from La Sierra (a peripheral area of Medellin's Comuna 8). At this place, you will learn about the roasting process and the importance of the social project they are leading. Your next stop will be at a place specialized making espresso, as according to them, the best way to taste a coffee's quality is in a freshly-made espresso.

Finally, you will stop at a coffee shop-independent designer store to enjoy a delicious cold brew (a 12-hour brewing process that highlights coffee's flavor while producing a cold refreshing beverage). You will also be welcome to sample their fresh homemade ginger or watermelon soda instead of the cold brew. Following your tour's completion, you will be driven back to your hotel.
