About the Coffee Region
Eje Cafetero, as the region is called in Colombia, is one of the country's exotic destinations. The three main areas to enjoy the culture are Caldas, Risaralda and Quindio, the famous "coffee triangle". The region, with its natural charm, incredible landscapes and its environmentally friendly farming methods, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the production to the roasting of this local golden bean, the visits are complete. One should not miss to visit Salento and the Valle Cocora, especially from May to October, to observe the harvesting of the grain. The visit of the region also includes the discovery of the famous "haciendas", splendid colonial houses. A complete escape from the hustle and bustle of the city!
