With my first sip of coffee every morning, I am taken back to that amazing land where I first experienced the most wonderful aroma in the world.

The Coffee Cultural Landscape is prosperous and generous. It seduces the visitor with the aroma of the coffee plantations and the delights of its scenery.

Wide roads, tireless workers and an infinite horizon: the Earth gives us its riches – and its inhabitants their hospitality.

The enchantment of the coffee culture

The Departments of Caldas, Quindío and Risaralda are known as the Coffee Cultural Landscape, and they produce the best coffee in the world.

All of this came from the modest, hard-working and thrusting mule –drivers from Antioquia, challenged and protected by the mountains, the creators of the coffee culture which now reigns in all three Departments.

The way in which Colombian coffee is grown and processed is truly fascinating.

As you walk round a plantation, your eras will be filled with the songs of the harvesters, which sounds like the voice of the surrounding mountains.

The songs evoke all the hard work and dedication that goes into a cup of coffee, the tireless efforts of the hands that pick the best fruit and turn it into one of the world´s most popular drinks.

The rolling hills of the coffee plantations are a hidden paradise, full of unsuspected pleasures.

The preparation of the soil is a labor of love, which makes the seeds germinate and a few months later produce chapolas – the first and only two round leaves that a coffee plant grows.

And each new plant starts a story in what in what is now a tradition or aroma and flavor. And the care they take of it is noble work, embodying the passion for coffee and for Colombian culture.
