Colombia has been recognized worldwide for its coffee and currently 20 of the 32 departments that make up the country are producers of this grain. However, it is in the departments of Caldas, Risaralda and Quindío, also known collectively as ¨Coffee Triangle¨, where coffee production has traditionally been emblematic.
The Coffee Triangle offers tourists a unique rural landscape. With endless cups of Arabica coffee, collectors and bean producers welcome visitors using their traditional poncho to proudly show off the best of their region. There, tourists have the opportunity to enjoy the peace and nature of the countryside, while learning about the coffee growing process.
The region also offers visitors the chance to reconnect with nature in its hot springs. These bodies of hot water, at a temperature above 60 degrees Celsius, are a source of health and relaxation; ideal for recovering strength before returning to daily routine. Located near Nevado del Ruíz, the hot springs are surrounded by a variety of birds such as colored ravines, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, sparrowhawks, among other species.
Therefore, a visit to the The Coffee Triangle must include a coffee tasting, a ride in an old car through the coffee plantations, a bath in the exclusive hot springs or an ecological walk to Nevado del Ruiz enriched by the singing of the region's birds.
