The Colombian Coffee Route
History, culture and sustainability
Colombian #coffee is known around the world for its mildness, aroma and flavour. This tour will take you through the Coffee Cultural Landscape, declared a #WorldHeritage Site by UNESCO in 2011. This is a region of incomparable beauty, not only of the landscape of coffee cultivation, but also of the native forests and biological corridors play an important role in conservation. Coffee is not just part of the landscape, but is also manifested in local culture, inspiring oral tradition, dance, music, cuisine, literature, architecture and customs that have been passed from one generation to the next.
From the fruity and floral aromas of the coffee from the Coffee Triangle, continue on to #Santander, where coffee is pure and eco-friendly, and characterized by a mild aroma and low acidity. In Santander, follow cobblestone trails, a legacy of the colonial era, and admire the countryside where coffee was first cultivated for export in the 15th century. Today, Santander stands out for its specialty coffee, which is organic and ecologically sustainable.
