The coffee zone is located in the heart of Colombia and is characterised by greenery and, of course, coffee cultivation. The volcanoes of the Central Cordillera have created ideal conditions for coffee cultivation on their lava slopes. At an altitude of approx. 1,500 metres above sea level at a temperature of approx. 25°C it is not only the coffee that likes it. The area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers an ideal mixture of relaxation and adventure to the culture and nature enthusiast traveler.
A must is the encounter with the coffee. See the path of the coffee from the seedling to the cup. Follow the many steps that are necessary to guarantee the quality of the coffee. The highlight is a tasting of different types of coffee. There you can taste and smell the whole variety and gain a completely new access to the old breakfast coffee.
But the volcanoes offer even more than the ground for coffee. In the different altitudes up to more than 4,000 meters above sea level, the most diverse vegetation forms and bird species can be discovered. In the Valle de Cocora there are palm trees up to 50 meters high and above the tree line starts the Páramo, an upland moor characterized by the Frailejones. Depending on your interests, you can explore nature in longer or shorter hikes.
Colourful villages such as Salento or Filandia invite you to stroll and linger. With a cup of the excellent coffee you can review the hike once again.
