Learn all about the production of Colombian coffee as you explore the Hacienda Coloma Coffee Plantation in Fusagasugá. On this full-day tour from Bogotá, you will have a guided tour of the plantation before visiting the Market Square in the town.
What to Expect
When people think of Colombia, one of the first things that comes to mind is the coffee. The country is full of mountains, valleys, rich soil and hard-working people. All this creates the perfect conditions for growing coffee. This has been a major driver of development and a reason of pride for every Colombian. As a result, we are one of the main coffee producers and we grow the best soft Arabic coffee worldwide. 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, collect coffee beans with your own hands and see both the traditional as well as the industrial process from seed to cup. You will also come to understand more about the manners and lifestyle of the coffee growers' population.
Once you finish, you'll have a break to eat a magnificent homemade “ajiaco”, cooked with the coffee farm's very own seasoning. After lunch you will 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, you will make a final stop at the village’s market where you will be able to appreciate Colombian biodiversity at its best. They have a permanent orchid market featuring dozens of beautiful plants.
