Coffee Tour in Coban

Red and ripe coffee fruit

Coban is a famous cafe region so we have to visit a cafe farm here. We head to “Cafe Chicoj” in the mountains. After asking the locals several times about the street conditions we recognized that their answer is always “yes” but in real the streets are NOT GOOD.

 

 

Unfortunately the first plantation we went to, did not offer tours today. But sure sold good coffee.

Si Si. The road is good.

Only roads which do not exist anymore are bad roads 😉

A little puppy welcomes us at the plantation

Cute little thing who only wants to play.

We get to know everything about coffee and its growing process.

A Zip Line adventure is also included….

…first we thought this is weird…

… but it was fun!

Some are still green…

…others are ready to be picked.

Coffee plants everywhere.

There has to be time for a kiss always!

This machine will peel the bean out of the fruit.

Unsorted coffee fruits.

After the peeling process they get washed and sorted.

At the end the beans have to dry and they use this oven to make a good heat.

Really funny coffee tour at finca “Chicoj”
