Finca del Cafe

Our last stop of the Christmas holidays: visiting a coffee farm and learning how the Colombians cultivate and produce coffee. From selecting the right seeds (hand-picking and de-pulping), to growing the plants, to selecting the ripe beans, to molding and processing them, to roasting them on the stove, and finally grinding them to drink a delicious coffee.

The Finca del Cafe and its coffee plantations are Cultural Landscape of Colombia, declared by Unesco. The accommodation itself is also really worth it. We had a nice room with a view on the garden and the mountains behind. It was a present for Louis and they really took that serious!
