Departing from Ollantaytambo instead of Cusco is recommended as it takes 2.5 hours to get to the family reducing travel time by about 1.5 hours.

Pick-up from your hotel to start your journey.

Arrival at the local farm, where a member of the family will give you the grand tour. They will explain the work that is performed on the farm, and show you the range of produce that is harvested to support their family. Here, you will also be able to taste the available fruit in season! This locally-owned and run farm is a small one that pertains to a cooperative organization in accordance with fair trade practices, which grants its organic certification. During this initial tour of the larger farm and coffee plantation, you will come to truly appreciate all of the hard work and stages that go into preparing an excellent cup of coffee!

Lunch on the farm! (Locally prepared family-style dishes). If you would like to try something special, guinea pig for example, we can coordinate with the family ahead of time and pay them directly upon arrival.

Interactive demonstration on toasting coffee, where you will have the opportunity to artisanally prepare your own cup of fresh coffee. The process takes about 2 hours.

After a brief break soaking in the countryside, you will return to Cusco.
