3 Amazing Coffee Tours to Take for Your Next Vacationpbfycom
Where does a coffee lover go for their dream destination vacation? Central or South America, of course! Where else can you get gorgeous scenery and some of the best coffee in the world? We’ve done the research and found 3 fabulous South and Central American coffee tours to satisfy your coffee craving direct from the source. We chose these countries because of the historical role coffee has played in the economy and wealth of the countries. Each of these destinations not only cater to tourists, giving 4 star accommodations and tours, but has a rich coffee culture that permeates the country. From the hardscrabble farmers who eke out their living on small farms, to huge coffee plantations that export millions of pounds annually, coffee in these countries is everything on a much deeper level than we imagine in our North American coffee culture. So get ready to plan your dream vacation, and to become even more coffee savvy as you participate in these amazing coffee tour destinations.
