A really interesting experience for some of us, others seemed more interested in the pets! The guy that owns the coffee farm, Finca Don Eduardo, is English. He is a wealth of knowledge, explaining the various stages from coffee cherries (cafe cerezas) on the plants themselves, through to the dried and roasted beans. He gives a great presentation!
The rich volcanic soil together with the climate and the topography make the region ideal for the cultivation of quality coffee. Don Eduardos cultivates 4 sub-varieties (varietals) of arabico coffee – Caturra, Variety Colombia, Arabico Tipica and Bourbon. In addition to the coffee the finca has a natural forest, two bamboo forests and three waterfalls.
