Tour Details

This is an impressive trip in which you will get the experience of learning the process of harvesting, selecting and tasting the best coffee Peru produces. The coffee tour will take you to meet with local families following an exclusive route to the coffee valleys of Quillabamba, near the town of Santa Teresa, which is on the way to the legendary city of Machu Picchu.

Coffee arrived tp America with European immigrants in the 18th century, they introduced their cultivation in Central America and South America. By the middle of the 18th century, coffee in Peru was produced in the provinces of Chanchamayo, Moyobamba, Jaén, Huánuco and Cusco. The first coffee bar in the historic center of Lima was opened in 1771, on Santo Domingo Street by Don Francisco Serio.

Peru now ranks eighth worldwide in the production of coffee beans since 2006. According to the International Coffee Organization, Peru is among the ten coffee producing and exporting countries in the world. It also ranks second worldwide as a producer and exporter of organic coffee, and is the first US coffee supplier, covering 25% of the market niche. Thanks to the diversity of combinations of climates, soils, precipitation and sunlight, coffee beans of types such as Coffea Arabica, Red Bourbon, Typica, and magnificent Geisha stand out for their flavor, aroma and acidity.
