It’s no secret that the Rickshaw Team love a good cuppa, so to celebrate International Coffee Day we thought we’d pay tribute to the women and men who grow, harvest and make the coffee we love with a roundup of our favourite coffee trips around the world.
So brew a fresh pot, get comfy and enjoy!
Coffee beans in Panama’s countryside
If you’re looking for a holiday with a twist, Panama is a real gem. It has the most amazing sandy beaches, you can learn all about indigenous tribal communities and you can even make your own coffee.
Our Boquete trip will awaken your senses with a steaming cup of the finest and first-class views of the lush landscapes. Boquete is often referred to as Panama’s Napa Valley of coffee. Nestled amongst green valleys in the North, the humid climate and rich volcanic soil here makes for the perfect coffee-growing spot. After a night in a cosy hotel and discovering an explosion of smells and colours, from eucalyptus trees to orchids, you’ll meet your guide for a stroll around the coffee farm. There’s even a chance to roll up your sleeves and get to work at roasting your own beans to take home as a tasty memento of your trip!
Top tip: If you’re thinking of heading to Boquete, January to March is the best time to go.
