Hacienda Bambusa colombia
MY first impressionI could stay here forever. The minute they opened the door to my room in this colorful hacienda, I felt a sense of calm and relaxation. The fresh scent of tropical flowers, tempting hammock on my private terrace, and glistening fruit made it hard to leave for my first excursion. Once I did head off, I continued to be in awe as my amazing local guide Camilo and I explored the lush green valley the hacienda sits in, and took in the surrounding mountain views.
what struck me as uniqueIt is the perfect balance of luxury and authenticity. It is a quintessentially Colombian hacienda on a working cacao farm with incredible local guides. The luxury is evident as well, as I felt like they anticipated my every need, and had thought through every last detail on the property.
my favorite activity“The little that I have, coffee has given me.” I was told this more than once during my excursion to Pijao, which was by far my favorite activity at Hacienda Bambusa. This is not your typical coffee farm tour, and gave me an insider’s view of life in the beautiful Colombian coffee region. My extremely knowledgeable guide Juan David and I started by exploring the nearby town of Pijao, including different speciality cafes, the coffee co-op, and the local coffee federation office. The day ended with me sorting coffee beans with Don Leo, a hard-working and innovative coffee farmer, who showed me around his farm, while his family prepared lunch. I loved this excursion because I experienced how coffee has shaped the lives of past, present, and future coffee campesinos. And I got to taste some of the best coffee in the world!
