About this trip

 

If you love coffee and/or chocolate, are interesting in meeting a local family, and want to see the beautiful countryside of Peru, then look no further than this tour! Join us for this unique coffee or cocoa farm tour experience where you will travel from Cusco to the beautiful La Convención Valley, tour an organic coffee and/or cocoa farm to learn about local traditional farming methods, and the arduous work that goes into coffee or cacao production! These families work with a local farm cooperative organization, COCLA, which has allowed them to receive organic and fair-trade certification.

Because this tour is for two days, you can choose to focus on the tour only on coffee or cocoa, OR we can arrange for you to tour both farms. If you would like this, then check the information below.

These families still practice traditional farming techniques such as raising free-range guinea pigs, chickens, etc. Also, you will find different tropical plants specific to the region such as root vegetables, mango, papaya, cocoa plants, and many more!

- Visit with coffee farmers; share in their daily lives

- Visit coffee and/or cacao plantations, and learn about production processes

- Prepare your cup of coffee or hot chocolate using traditional methods
