You wouldn’t be visiting Colombia if you weren’t the least bit interested in coffee, would you? Today, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and head out for an authentic experience on an actual working coffee finca (farm) located 1 1/2 hours from the city. This is an ideal coffee tour that does not require you to travel long distances. Along the way, you’ll pass through Antioquia’s gorgeous green landscape that has been so hospitable to the coffee plant. At the finca you’ll learn the entire process of making coffee, from the plant to the cup. You’ll also get an understanding of daily life on Colombian coffee cooperatives still producing coffee in a traditional and fair way.
Sustainability is the overarching thread through all aspects of the experience here. Even the healthful, all-organic menu is aimed at promoting a sustainable future with all of its locally- sourced ingredients supporting the community.
The lush, forested hills that surround Cannua are an inspiring view from the centrallylocated rooms in the main lodge. But Cannua’s featured cabañas on stilts, boasting floorto-ceiling windows and wrap-around balconies, offer a more intimate experience. The active experiences here are where Cannua truly shines: bird-watching or hiking the area’s pre-Hispanic heritage trails, community farm visits, coffee tasting, flower arranging or foraging in their on-site garden. Or, just take some time to look inward for self-care in their calming spa.
