  • If you are a person with a good sense of humor and that enjoying tourism with interaction, this is your place. If you don't like the above is better to refrain from visiting it. Important sample of the coffee culture in general.

  • I was with my family and we left happy, the service is typical of the region of warm, friendly helpful and humorous. The attraction is to show the entire process of coffee in a typical farm on a tour. During the guidance it provides to make jokes; the scenery is spectacular, they have the opportunity to put the costume and also learn culture as he lived in the village and houses, parade of jeeps, coffee harvest and ends with the real Colombian coffee tasting. Lunch is optional and SUPER delicious is recommended. It has memories and inevitable photos shop. Service 1A. @lauramaralgi

  • This is such an amazing and adequate place to learn about the cup of coffee we drink at home! While at home we pay (I think) a lot of money, here in Colombia, we pay less than A DOLLAR for a cup! Ther...  read more »
  • This is an awesome experience specially if you are travelling with small kids or the rest of the family. The experience is more aimed at giving visitors an inside in the lives of the people who harvest the coffee in Colombia. Be preferred to be very interactive as they will dress you in typical cloth for both men and women so don't be shy and get out of your comfort zone. I went to RECUNCA after a visit to Hacienda Combia and although they were back to back I did not feel as if I was being overwhelmed with the same information simply because Combia was more in the technical side of how the final product got to the coffee bag you open. RECUNCA also covers it but in less depth. Also the price is 1/5 of combia. At 20,000 COP and an additional 16,000 for the biturre which is food. The food is meant to show you how and what workers used to eat while working on the Plantation. If you are looking to learn more about the product I would stop and go combia but instead you want to learn about the folks that live the Juan Valdez way of life then come here.
  • Great for Spanish speakers! Our guide was hilarious and made sure we had plenty of fun as we learned about coffee cultivation, processing, and culture. Not recommend for non Spanish speakers because you will kiss out on a lot of the jokes!
  • Very beautiful place ! The staff were very friendly and were able to explain well the transformation from the sprout to the very end as being a coffee. I learned so much about coffee. They allow you to go out into the fields and also pick out coffee beans! They also make you dress up in the typical Colombian outfits. It was so much fun!
  • A very nice, cosy and fun place to learn a bit of coffee culture. All very kind attention. I recommend you to visit. The food is also pretty good, so I recommend it. The direction is a bit wrong, but not far from the real site and people help you to reach easily.
