  • We tested this time my partner and I to make a visit to this place where they offer an excursion over the coffee culture. The turn is very interesting and takes about three hours in which the animators recreate it in a way that is entertaining and very Joker. With a typical binge very coffee is then sprinkled. The cost of the ticket are 20 thousand pesos and the food 16 thousand per head. I definitely recommend this vehicle.

  • recommend me this place, and it was wonderful, madness, we met all the coffee, Nicholas gave us a tour of the whole place, until we picked up coffee, they paid us a chilata, who then drank with the limoda jojojo, we learned much, coffee recuca have to buy it. The food of the place is unique, very good beans. the photos also, but more than all the learning which is enough.

  • Recommend me the place, and the journey made by Nicolas is perfect, with his humor 'paisa' people is ria and learn in the best way... the site is great and very well organized... warning: humor is paisa, therefore tends to be ' two-way' so you must go plan to relax and smile. Perfect price/quality.

  • I really enjoyed it, thought it was very well done. The tour guide was friendly and cracking jokes, lots of fun. Beautiful place and informative tour. It's more theatrical than the other tours, but I liked that about it.
  • 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!
  • It is a very fun and educational about the coffee culture, to Colombians is to return to the past. All the clothing and decoration, recalls times of grandparents, children's is very good for that learn as they were the customs of yesteryear!. Renew energy!
