Tour DescriptionThe charming town of Boquete is known for growing one of the best coffees in the world.
This interesting coffee tour begins right in the fields of this town, where you will get a glimpse of the three vital factors that influence the coffee’s quality: the soil, the micro-climate, and the particular genetics of the variety; and you will learn about the history, origin, qualities and secrets of coffee handling.
In the second phase of the tour, you will learn about coffee production - all the way from ripe coffee cherry to roasted bean.
The tour ends at the Tasting Table where the long, intense and complex coffee process ends. This is also the place where growers find out whether or not a whole year’s work produced a high quality coffee. Here, you will taste different varieties of coffee and learn how to distinguish between different taste tones. Instructions will be given on how to prepare a good cup of coffee by learning about water temperature, time, toasting and grinding, and different brewing methods like Coffee Maker, French Press, Drip brew and Boiling.
