Peanut Butter Workshop

2-3 Hours | Cooking Class and Getting to Know Locals

Eating fresh peanut butter is like a little bit of heaven! The only way to improve it is by making it fresh yourself in the home of peanut farmers on the slope of Volcan Agua. Hear about the basics of peanut farming firsthand and learn the trick of easy peanut shelling. Roast peanuts over a fire and grind them by hand. There is nothing added to the peanut butter! - no added sugar, salt, oil or preservatives. This is a great activity for families with children or any peanut butter addict!

De la Gente

De la Gente works with coffee farming communities to create economic opportunity that improves the quality of life of their families and communities. You can meet farmers and artisans and work alongside them in their homes, as you create your own souvenir, not to mention memories to last a lifetime. Take a tour led by a smallholder coffee farmer to see where your coffee comes from, learn to make pepian (the national dish of Guatemala) in the home of a local 'chef' or try your hand in making a number of other artisan goods.
