Tour Description

Start your adventure by traveling from Cusco to the small jungle town of Huayopata, where you’ll meet your host and learn about local coffee production. Experience the process the bean goes through on its way to becoming coffee, and you will chat with the farmers about the quality and texture of good coffee. You will help these cultivators support their families by joining in their effort to make organic coffee as flavorful as ever!
