Whereas the Coffee Triangle is known for its quantity of coffee, the coffee in Santander and especially La Mesa de los Santos is recognized for its high quality and being 100% organic. The coffee tour will be made on the coffee farm Hacienda El Roble, officially producing the most expensive and most exclusive coffee in Colombia and the third most expensive in the world. The farm is one of the oldest coffee farms in Colombia and it is the largest one in La Mesa de los Santos. Because of the fact that the whole region produces organic coffee, the farm is a perfect living space for birds, which means there are 127 different bird species living on the farm.
Upon arrival, you will have time to enjoy the picturesque setting of the coffee guesthouse having a welcoming coffee. The coffee tour starts with a walk through the coffee fields and the outside coffee museum where everything about the coffee plant and the distinct types will be explained. After the walk you will arrive at the production facilities where all the steps from the coffee harvest to the finished coffee bean will be shown. The tour ends with the coffee tasting experience which fascinates most travelers due to the quality differences of the coffee.
