Wake up and smell the coffee farm with a visit to the Hacienda Coloma Coffee Plantation in Fusagasugá. Here, you can follow the world of Colombian-grown coffee from bean to cup with a professional grower as your guide. In addition to touring the colonial hacienda and its surroundings, you’ll learn about the planting, selecting, threshing, roasting and tasting process, with a cup of the plantation's latest roast included.
Given its location in the Colombian countryside just an hour and a half outside of Bogota, Hacienda Coloma makes for a great day trip from the city, with most visitors opting for a tour that includes a dedicated guide and lunch, plus round-trip transportation.
It’s difficult to reach Hacienda Coloma unless you have your own transport, so joining a tour that includes pick-up and drop-off from your Bogota hotel is recommended.
Did You Know? Before coffee beans can be roasted, they have to be stripped of their outer shells—twice—and turned every few hours as they dry, a process which takes several days.
