In this coffee experience go down the mountains to another state located 1720 meters above sea level. This coffee state is reminiscent of the same architecture and traditions found at the Colombian coffee axis.
What to Expect
When people think of Colombia, one of the first things that comes to mind is coffee. The country is full of mountains, valleys, very rich soil, and hard working people. All that together creates the perfect conditions for growing coffee. This has been a mayor development driver and a reason of pride for every Colombian. As a result, Colombians are one of the main coffee producers.
In this coffee experience you will travel an hour and a half from Bogotá and go down the mountains to another state located 1720 meters above sea level. At this altitude, the cold weather of Bogotá changes into a temperate and damp climate, which are optimal conditions for growing coffee. This coffee state reminds us of the same architecture and traditions found at the Colombian coffee axis, and the organic plantation and production sites are still operating.
During your visit you will tour the orchid gardens, learn about temperate weather vegetation, and enter the heart of dense crop growth. There you will witness the way fruit trees contribute to the aroma of coffee, you will collect coffee beans with your own hands and see both the traditional as well as the industrial process from the seed to your cup. Also, you will come to understand more about the manners and lifestyle of the coffee growers' population.
Once you finish, have a break and eat a magnificent home made “ajiaco”, cooked with the coffee farm's very own seasoning. After lunch have the chance to taste a freshly roasted and brewed coffee, which is the result of the whole process you have experienced.
Outside the farm, make a final stop at the village’s market where you will be able to appreciate Colombian biodiversity at its best. This market commercializes all the exotic fruits, vegetables and herbs of the region in a traditional way. Also, they have a permanent orchid market featuring dozens of beautiful plants.
