There is no better way to learn about this fascinating process than by visiting one of the millions of coffee plantations across the globe, where you will gain a unique insight into how the beans are grown and processed and of course, sample some of their deliciousness for yourself!
Colombia is synonymous with coffee and is the third largest producer on the planet (behind Brazil and Vietnam) owing largely to its blend of climate, elevation and fertile volcanic soil, which together create the perfect conditions for growing beans of the highest quality.
There are numerous coffee regions throughout Colombia including near Medellin, its second largest city, once considered one of the most dangerous places on earth it has undergone massive regeneration in recent decades and is now regarded as one of the most exciting destinations in all of South America, and the perfect place for a coffee tour.
