The majority of coffee farms in northern Tanzania are small scale family farms. You will have the opportunity to visit a small scale family run coffee farm on the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Spend the day learning about how coffee is made from experts, speaking with local farmers who have dedicated their lives to growing coffee, and drinking some of the best coffee in the world.
During the coffee tour take a detour and hike to the Maturuni waterfalls, providing an opportunity to walk through the coffee fields and see how the local Chagga people live.
