About
Our Colombian Coffee and Culture activity is an adventure into the flavors, aromas, and heartwarming stories about coffee. Coffee is about the brave coffee farmers and the baristas who love sharing special coffee with the people they serve. Coffee is the heart of Colombia: learn about it with our team of coffee experts.  This walking experience begins at 9 am in Santa Marta's historic district. Your guide, a certified coffee expert, will tell you about the history of coffee all the way up to the newest innovative coffee brewing methods. You will learn how to appreciate the special characteristics in the coffees you'll taste, what makes Colombia an ideal country to grow coffee, and details about coffee growers. This 3-hour workshop includes coffee tastings at each shop visited, but does not include other food and drinks.

Specialty coffee tour
This tour is so informative, it was such a fun way to spend my last morning in Santa Marta. I love coffee! My friends that did the tour with me aren’t such coffee enthusiasts but also enjoyed the tour. Melissa is very knowledgeable and passionate about coffee culture in Colombia. I look forward to trying her recommendations when I visit Bogotá. Our favorite coffee spot on the tour was Ikaro. There we tried the same type of coffee from the Sierra Nevada, but prepared a different way in a Chemex. Melissa did a great job explaining about the different preparation methods and also about the different coffee regions in the country. Go ahead and slurp, you’ll be glad you did!

I learned so much about coffee and Colombian culture. Indira is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about coffee culture in general, but specifically Colombian coffee culture. She makes it impossible for you to not find appreciation for colombian coffee culture in your heart. I recommend everyone who comes to Santa Marta to take this amazing tour!

Wonderful day learning about Colombian coffee!
Jan 2020
What an incredible day spent learning about Colombian coffee while strolling in Santa Marta! Indira is a wonderful tour guide and she is also very knowledgeable and passionate about coffee and she tottaly passes that on to you. I've like the diferent laminated prints and photos that she used as an aid to her explanations. Kudos to Karen (Flavors of Bogota) for coming up with this "workshops" for people who are in Colombia and whant to learn a bit more about coffee in the country. Don't hesitate in doing this if you are a coffee lover! Thank you for the lovely day!

An insight into the real Colombia.
Oct 2019 • Friends
I am pretty much a coffee novice/amateur... so to have an in-depth morning with Indira, (who really knows her coffee!) taking us through all of the processes, idiosyncrasies and intricacies of the beans and then the drinking.
I very much know I will always drink coffee differently from now on.
And the places we visited were great.
I know exactly what I’ll be taking home with me!
Many thanks Flavors of Bogotá
