After completing our field trip we will reach Shangri-La, where you may enjoy a fresh cup of coffee, water and a restroom service.
The tour will continue on to how to process coffee: drying, cleaning, classifying, sorting and roasting coffee. We will be visiting diferent stations inside the factory, each responsible for a different process.
