Learn About Cacao

Have you ever wondered why Colombian chocolate is considered to be among the best in the world?

Find out for yourself by coming to visit us here at Origen EcoVillage for a tour of our bean-to-bar chocolate factory!

Your Origen Cacao tour will last for approximately 2 ½ hours; you will get to see real producing cacao trees, learn our method of chocolate making, including the machinery used, the reasons we use our particular process, some interesting choco-facts, and of course… the tasting!

You will learn a brief history of where the cacao tree comes from and taste the sweet fruits from some of our very own trees. You will then have the opportunity to make your very own custom chocolate to take home with you; we have plenty of ingredients – from sea-salt to chili – so feel free to experiment!

When the tour is over, you are free to wander our farm and visit with the animals, have a swim in our crystal clear river, or walk the fruit tree-lined paths all while keeping an eye out for exotic birds and animals like toucans and iguanas!

Private and custom tours available for groups of 2 or more. 

Just one hour from Medellin, it’s easy to reach our farm by taxi or using the public bus. Tour without transportation is $120,000 COP per person.
