My name is Dan from New Zealand and I'm knee deep in coffee here in Colombia, setting up coffee exports and learning the in's and out's of the coffee industry over the last 6 years. I've setup this experience so others can see the amazing world of Colombian coffee and how the locals live coffee day in day out. This is an amazing experience for people to learn the art of cultivation, processing, roasting all the way to the art of a baristas preparation.
