Antigua Guatemala Coffee & Textiles Tour
We have designed the coffee & textiles tour to explore the natural and cultural aspects of Antigua Guatemala.
You will visit two community projects where the coffee farmers and textile producers themselves will guide you step by step through producing their products.
Meet coffee farmers from the village of San Miguel Escobar, they will take you up the volcano on foot to their fields, and you will learn about coffee cultivation.
After coming down from the volcano, the farmers will take you to their homes to demonstrate how to process coffee. Next, a farmer’s wife will teach you to roast and grind. Finally, you’ll be able to take home a bag of coffee you husked, sorted, and roasted yourself.
