⭐ Highlights

Meet and interact with small local coffee farmers of the Antigua Valley

Learn about how coffee is planted, harvested, and produced, from picking to packaging

Sample various blends of the best artisan coffee Guatemala has to offer

Description

De La Gente works with the local farmers’ co-op to help them brand their coffee and reach markets in North America and Europe.

We will take you on a private tour with one of the co-op farmers to their field and then go to their house to see how they toast the coffee on a small batch at a time level. Finally we will have lunch with the family before heading back to Antigua. This trip is more expensive than the ride out to commercial coffee farms, but a portion of your trip price goes straight to the farmer/co-op for the tour there.
