FIELD TRIP


COLOMBIA COFFEE LAND


Colombian coffee is produced by 555,558 coffee families, in 685.042 farms, for a total of 934,119 hectares planted with coffee, cultivated in the different slopes of the three branches of the Andes Mountains and in the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, covering the country from the Caribbean coast to the north, to the border with Ecuador in the south. Most of the coffee zones are located in 21 departments: Antioquia, Bolívar, Boyacá, Caldas, Cauca, Cesar, Caquetá, Casanare, Choco, Cundinamarca, Guajira, Huila, Magdalena, Meta, Nariño, North of Santander, Quindío, Risaralda, Santander, Tolima and Valle del Cauca.

In Colombia, many varieties of Arabica coffee are grown thanks to the country’s climate and thermal floors’ diversity, which makes it world-renowned for its intense fragrance, pronounced aroma, outstanding acidity, balanced body, and softness.



WELCOME TO ANTIOQUIA!


In Antioquia Coffee Land we are ready to give you an unforgettable experience

Antioquia is a Colombian department located to the northwest of the country, which occupies a territory of 63,612 km² in which currently 6,534,764 people live in a total of 125 municipalities. The capital is the city of Medellin.

Coffee is one of the most representative products of the agricultural sector in the department and has a total area of 127,000 hectares planted with coffee, distributed in 94 municipalities, where 84,000 coffee-growing families live in 120 thousand farms. 89% of Antioquia's coffee plantations are technically young and 86% of them are planted with varieties which are rust resistant.

Antioquia is consolidating as a power for the specialty-coffees market. There are currently 23,756 coffee growers producing sustainable coffee in 69,212 hectares, contributing with 16% of the national coffee production (about 2,400,000 sacks of coffee).

ESTEBAN JARAMILLO FARM


The Esteban Jaramillo Farm is in the municipality of Venecia (Antioquia), 55 kilometers from Medellin. It has modern and comfortable facilities, surrounded by beautiful landscapes. In this place, you can enjoy the traditional Colombian food, ecological walks, and sports areas, in addition to the live experience: "What is behind a cup of coffee?”

In the Rosario de Cenicafé Substation, next to the Esteban Jaramillo Farm, you will learn what lies behind a cup of coffee, through sowing, germinating seedlings, benefit, harvesting, fermentation and drying. Also, the threshing and the transformation of the grain to the cup. This offers a unique experience of all the senses, from smell to taste.
