Unique tours at Finca Momota
When you’re sitting drinking your favourite coffee do you ever wonder where it comes from or how it becomes that delicious darkness in your mug? You might be surprised at just how much it takes. Here at Finca Momota we offer two kinds of tour:
Coffee Plantation Tour: a 1 hour walking tour of our coffee plantation where you will learn and see first hand how we grow our coffee, harvest it, process it and make it ready for our customers. We will also introduce you into how we implement ancestral methods and permaculture design with biotechnology fertilization to produce high quality coffee, without chemicals, that contributes to the biodiversity of our beautiful land.
Duration: 2 hrs
Cost: 35,000 COP
Tour of the senses: This tour incorporates the standard tour of the coffee plantation. However we wish to introduce our guests into the magic of the entirety of our property where all the senses of sight, sound, touch and taste are invoked among our bio-diverse landscape and beautiful vistas. On this tour you will taste and smell the produce of our luscious fruit trees and aromatic gardens. Hear the sounds of life from within our hectare of protected forest, open your eyes wide at the sight of the many resident exotic bird species and insects. And marvel at our 42 famous wax palms against the beautiful backdrop of the Salento valley. Here you can pause and take in the tranquillity of this spot.
Cost: 60,000 COP
At the end of both tours you’ll be treated to two forms of coffee infusion; French Press (a lighter, softer flavour) and Italian Cafetiere (stronger, deeper flavour) or Moka. All of this just 10 minutes walking from Salento town!
Tour times: 9:00am & 2:00pm, daily. However if you would like to organise a private tour, or have a particular timetable to meet we can be flexible with times. Feel free to contact us.
Booking: You are welcome to simply arrive at Finca Momota and we will try to accommodate you. If you prefer more security you can book directly with us or through your hostel/hotel.

During the tour you can spot a large number of bird species and a variety of wildlife. We have over 36 Waxpalm trees in our land among many other native trees.

Experience a family run business using ancestral techniques guided by local expertise. Our coffee is produced from 7 year old coffee trees descended from a line 80 years old, which can still be seen standing proud among their grandchildren.
Our coffee is produced organically and sustainably. We are working with reforestation, using ancestral methods of cultivation and using Permaculture design techniques.
