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!

  1. Amai, jullie doen nogal uitstappen! moet er daar niet gewerkt worden of is 20 uren per week genoeg?
    Geniet er maar van! wij genieten van de mooie beelden-zo zien we ook iets van de wereld…
