Visiting Coffee Farms. Rovira Tolima Colombia
Always a pleasure to get away from the big city and get to what I call the real Colombia.
And visit the Fincas small coffee farms set high in the central Andes. This time of year the rain can be heavy, but makes a nice view with the clouds when they clear or sit low though the valley. This trip was a long weekend staying with a family and walking to other fincas visiting more family, as you know Colombians have large families. This coffee area is known as Buena Vista and another coffee area from Rovira I like to visit is Luisa. Most Colombian coffee growers live in fincas whose coffee cultivation's plots do not surpass 2 hectares (5 acres) on average.
