In Colombia, coffee is an artform. From the mountain terraces where the beans are grown and picked to the rich aroma as you take a sip, every step in the process is carefully considered. This morning tour of some of Cartagena’s best cafés will take you on a journey of discovery, learning all there is to know about Colombia’s rich coffee culture and sampling some of its finest brews along the way.
Come with us to Finca La Victoria, a coffee farm located between 600 and 800 meters above the level sea, up in the mountain, you will find this self-sustainable 127 years old coffee farm, where you will get to know first hand how coffee is picked, selected, treated and packed. And what makes this even more fascinating is that still use the same machines they imported more than 100 years ago. Would you like to know how the managed to transport those huge machines through that hard and unpaved road? We bet you'd be more than glad to. After visiting Finca La Victoria and eating lunch, our next stop is Pozo Azul waterfalls. Here you will relax, swim and enjoy the rest of the day. These are the most famous waterfalls in Minca and the most recommended one.
