You will begin your day by visiting one of these small local farms to learn about how coffee is harvested and produced from bean to cup. You will then get the chance to try your own hand at preparing a fresh cup of coffee to try.
This is also a great opportunity to talk to the locals and learn about the fascinating history of the Chagga people, a native tribe that lives on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.
