Traditional Coffee Experience
Information not currently available.
Approximately 4½ hours
Wake your senses with this excursion into the heart of Ecuador’s coffee country. Depart the pier for the scenic drive to Finca El Cisne -- a coffee, cardamom and cattle farm located about 45 miles from Manta. This beautiful, privately-owned, 24-acre property is mainly devoted to the production of coffee, which is packed and exported under the brand name of Café Vasar.
As you walk with your guide through the property, take a closer look at the coffee plants and learn more about the traditional growing and harvesting procedures, as well as drying, toasting, grinding and packing. At the conclusion of your tour, sit down and enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee served with a typical Costeño snack before the drive back to the pier.
