As if Tanzania’s natural beauty, landscape, wildlife and beaches aren’t enough to attract tourists, the country is also known for its huge coffee farms, where fresh coffee beans from coffee plantations are extracted to make sure you get the perfect blend of coffee.
What more could a coffee lover ask for than the scent of freshly brewed coffee right from a coffee farm?
If this sounds like something you would enjoy, then you should definitely go on Arusha’s Coffee Plantation Tour!
The tour usually involves a stroll in Arusha’s coffee lodges, followed by the tasting of different brewed coffee varieties. You actually get to see the entire process from scratch! From the extraction of the coffee beans to the addition of milk or any other additive you like to the final cup, you get to see the whole process right in front of you! In fact, you can even pick the coffee beans by yourself!
For those with an insatiable thirst for coffee, Arusha’s Coffee Plantation Tour is a visit to paradise. Nothing beats the scent of freshly roasted coffee beans!
Your tour guides will also inform you about how old the farms really are! Some of them are even a hundred years old! See for yourself the difference between the new farms and the old farms.
Arusha Coffee Lodge
The Arusha Coffee Lodge is a luxurious lodge where you can take a coffee tour as well as enjoy staying over at a fancy place! It’s equipped with a swimming pool, a restaurant and a café. If the weather is cold, you can enjoy their bonfires too!
Not only this, but it also has about 30 coffee plantation areas! This means that you’ll get to live with the aroma of coffee beans if you stay at the coffee lodge! The coffee farms themselves are quite breathtaking, with different shades of green dominating the scenery.
Most people like to go on Arusha’s coffee plantation tour either at the start or at the end of their Tanzanian Safari. I suggest you go over there at the start because by the time you’re done with the safari, you’ll be too tired to go on a coffee tour and who knows, you might need an extra day or two at the end for the safari!
So, what are you waiting for? Embark on a journey where you can live in the aroma of coffee and get served fresh coffee whenever you want it!
