Traditional manufacturing industries converted into tourism factories seems to be an unstoppable trend these days. With the recent development of Taiwan’s tourism industry, many local traditional industries accordingly transform themselves into tourism factories, hoping to combine industry, economy and culture together with creative and novel elements. This rising trend not only allows tourists to experience and have better ideas about the traditional industries but also brings opportunities and vitality to these factories.
Ping Huang Coffee Tourism Factory is a perfect result out of the sheer popularity of tourism factory and coffee culture in recent years. Located primarily in the city of origin of the brand itself — Chiayi, the coffee factory is dedicated to education, recreation and culture, where visitors will go on an informative tour that explains the coffee preparation, stage by stage, from seed to cup. Also, you will learn from interesting illustrations about the different processes of making mocha, latte, cappuccino, and many more.
Hands-on activities including making coffee sachets, hand brewing coffee and coffee cupping will help you gain a fuller experience of the complex world of coffee. However, to be very honest with you, the factory tour might not be an instructive visit for those coffee connoisseurs as they have known so much about their own cup of joe.
