For those of you who know me, me encantar el cafe, I love coffee and espresso. I consider myself a “Hobby Barista”. So being in Colombia for two weeks now without even coming close to a coffee plantation does not sound right. So, last Saturday we all decided to visit a coffee place nearby. Not really a major plantation, but for getting there would require flying again and that was no option this time for the team.
We were picked up early in the morning and two hours later we reached Cafe Coloma. A really nice place with a wonderful garden.
We got a two hour tour explaining and showing the full process from growing the coffee plants, picking, unpulping, drying, roasting, grinding, brewing and finally drinking.
We had a really nice day, even though we only got one single cup of coffee 😀
On the way back to Bogota we ran into the same crazy traffic we have to deal with every day. If you count the lines with motorcycles the Colombians can fit 6 rows on 2 lanes. We stopped at the city center for a nice lunch and then went to Plaza Bolivar.
As you can see on the pictures, we have great weather here in Bogota and the prefect temperature: +/- 20 degree Celsius. And this not only that day, but more or less every day of the last 2,5 weeks. I carry my umbrella and rain coat every day (as we have been told it can rain every moment :-)), but so far not used it once. Don’t get me wrong, I am definitely not complaining – I know how the weather is like in Europe. So we are all happy about that.
Oh, by the way, the last weekend already marked the half of our stay here in Bogota. Two weeks that feel like month. Two more to come …
