Visiting a shade grown coffee plantation in India, trip participants take part in the entire coffee process: from tree to cup!
Elan Organic Coffees Logo We are excited about our Women's Coffee Tours! Our partner, Elan Organic Coffees, is the leading developer of certified organic and socially responsible coffees, connecting farmers and consumers from tree to cup. Elan's founder, Karen Cebreros, helped initiate the International Women's Coffee Alliance (IWCA), was a pioneer in Bird-Friendly certified coffees (SMBC). With coffee tours, we Give Back to coffee-growing communities by funding schools, health centers, roads and improving working conditions.

Our mission and Elan's blend effortlessly. Through the practice of organic coffee production and fair trade, we can improve the environment while simultaneously enriching the quality of life for farming co-ops in developing countries.

Coffee is the second largest commodity after oil, and the second most consumed beverage after water. Our tours are designed to build relationships with coffee producers, many of whom are women, to visit local farms and mills, and to experience the entire coffee process: from cherry picking, beneficios, drying, to warehousing and the dry mill. A learning opportunity you can't afford to miss!
