Picking Coffee In ColombiaCoffee is my most important meal of the day. In my life, morning is not possible without coffee. I am in the coffee triangle of Colombia – the Utopia for coffee drinkers. The coffee triangle is the region of Colombia where most of the coffee crops grow.
My coffee lesson begins at the beautiful Hacienda Venecia. (http://www.haciendavenecia.com)
Coffee beans begin as red berries.The coffee beans are the seeds.We head down across a river bed to pick coffee beans.We start along a path but gradually we are walking through thick bushes smacking us all over.I’m sure I must be getting malaria. The lives of the coffee pickers are hard and the work is tedious and difficult. ….Coffee will always remind me of Colombia.
