I'm a Chicago native transplanted in Colombia. 3.5 years ago I came down here and quickly decided I wanted a piece of this paradise, so I purchased a coffee farm. Manizales is a brilliant city, and I look forward to helping you integrate into Colombian culture with this exchange! I'm only in Colombia for about half the year.

Helping with Tourists
You will learn about the full coffee growing process from farm to cup and have the ability to grow, harvest, and eat from the garden at the farm.
I bought the Finca 2 years ago as a project, so there is so much to be done, from cleaning the farm (with machete) to investigating new viable plants to grow, to picking coffee and helping with coffee tours. I'm from the USA and live near the farm in Manizales, Colombia, but the needs are growing and help is welcomed! If you have experience working on coffee farms that is obviously a big plus, but none is needed.

We have standard hostel bunk beds and there is internet. We are located only 10 minutes from the city.
There is food at the farm available in the garden and a kitchen. We will provide food and there are restaurants nearby as well.
Manizales offers significant nature tourism. We have volcanoes, hot springs, drastic Andean mountain scenery everywhere, and lush foliage.
