Specialty Coffee Workshops in Cartagena

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This workshop takes you on a route of less than a mile to visit a variety of specialty coffee shops in Cartagena's gorgeous historic center. At each shop you'll taste specialty coffees and learn about the areas where they are produced. Additionally, you'll talk with coffee shop owners and managers, baristas, and other coffee experts. These passionate people often personally know the coffee farmers that grew the beans in your cup.

    Even if you’re not a coffee enthusiast, this is still an experience for you. You will dive into the culture behind the coffee – the history, the hard work, and the perseverance of Colombian farmers and baristas. Discover the stories behind Colombian coffee and the stories hiding inside the bags of coffee you take home with you.
