Cafe Colombiano!

Location: Chinchina y Manizales, Colombia

Here we go, from the bean to the cup, the best coffee I have ever tasted! I think that day I drank around 5 or 6 cups of tinto...which was obligatory at evey little stop we made.

The owner of the Finca, who told us all about the process, and was very knowledgeable on the horticulture of coffee growing (I guess he better be)

Coffee flowers, the begining of the process...

drying in the sun before the shell like substance is removed (which is later used in a silage like mixture for animal feed)

Ripe and ready to be picked...

packaging the little beans up, Dad you can expect one of those bags in the pile to arrive in Canada sometime...

Nice legal exports

Zona de Cafetera...major production region of Colombia, centered around Chichina, the town nestled in this valley

A little out of order, but one of the sorting machines which de-shells (hehe my technical coffee production terminology) the beans

Mangoes on a mango tree

The adorable little house where you can stay at the finca...

What I liked most of all was this anthropomorphic statue in front of the cathedral, to me it represents the progression of human nature, humans taking flight, freedom!

One of the many cathedrals I really liked, this one in Manizales, sort of gothic looking...
