Four Seasons Hotel Bogota and Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota unveiled a new tailor-made coffee experience. The Coffee Plantation Getaway is created to explore a living piece of Colombia’s coffee history amid the rural beauty of a tropical cloud forest in the Colombian Andes just a couple of hours outside the capital city.
Cafetal de la Trinidad is an iconic Colombian coffee farm that has been harvesting beans since 1894. One of the first haciendas to start coffee planting in the region, Trinidad has been restored by a new generation of the family and recently opened its doors to visitors for the first time.
The Coffee Plantation Getaway offers guests a unique and authentic tour “from bean to cup.” Guests will be treated to a specialty coffee tasting and welcome cake prepared by a barista from Colo Coffee and served in the red-roofed historic home at Trinidad. Visitors ready the palate for preparation four ways – via French press, the Chemex, the syphon, and the AeroPress – with resulting flavors unique to each cup.
A tour of the historic coffee factory will let guests discover the history of Colombia’s coffee industry over the past century, as well as the onsite production and processing methods and new coffee trends. After that they will enjoy a guided exploration of the Trinidad Estate on horseback or foot.
There will also be lunch at the historic home with Colombian specialties from paramo smoked trout and spinach-infused hummus to a simple pudding of obleas and arequipe prepared from locally sourced ingredients, as well as a coffee ceremony led by a barista with opportunity for guests to create their own Trinidad blend to take home.
Guests on the Coffee Plantation Getaway enjoy full-day use of a standard SUV as well as directions for reaching Cafetal de la Trinidad.
