A stunning little town surrounded by coffee farms and beautiful landscapes
Three hours away from Medellin in the southeast of Antioquia we find Jericó, a small town filled with history, beautiful architecture and local charm. We will explore the history of this traditional paisa town, walk (or drive) through is cobbled streets and admire the colorful facades and balconies that are accompanied by native flora. We will learn about the "Carriel", a typical handmade leather bag, of which Jericó is famous for its production. We will also visit a traditional family coffee farm where its owners will explain to us all the process of the coffee, from seed to a delicious cup of this drink. If you are already familiar with the coffee process we can focus on the details of coffee roasting and specialty coffees, since the farm's owner is an especialist in this area. For nature and hiking enthusiasts we can visit "Cerro Las Nubes" for a cloud forest feel an spectacular view of the Cauca Valley, and at the coffee farm a 45 min hike await to enjoy waterfalls.
