In a sunny Sunday morning, while in a weekend in the zona cafetera area, we went, "driven" by our Colombian friends, to this famous finca where they have coffee plantations and they make visit to it. The best moment to go is the early morning (between 9:00 and 10:00), to avoid the strong sun.
At our arrival we were so lucky that an English tour was already booked for that time, so we joined it. So in case you don't speak Spanish, be sure to ask for it in advance in order to not miss anything of the great explanation about the local life at the time of the "paisa" (typical old name of the farmers in that area)! The girl who was our guide (Jennifer, if I well remember the name) was very kind and really good in English and she explained us everything.
The tour will start explaining the plants, the different coffee varieties, the origin, ... . All this, moving among the coffee plants. Then you will go to pick the coffee fruits from the plants, as they do! You will get a fresh aguapanela, perfect under the equator sun. After, you will also dress yourself as the old "paisa" and will learn how to dance typical dances. And at the end, if you booked it at the time of your arrival in the morning, you can also have lunch there. I really recommend it, it's not expensive and very traditional (also according to our Colombian friends who were with us).
Not to miss!
