    HOLAAA

    We are an intercultural and interracial couple. My wife is an Afro-Colombian from the cost and I am a retired Swiss.

    We are located in the heart of the coffee region EJE CAFETERO. Our pueblo MARSELLA-RISARALDA is is not so wellknown as Filandia or Salento, but it is indeed also one of the most beautiful old coffee villages of Colombia. Our Finca is a 10 cuadras (70’000m2) large traditional coffee farm with 35’000 coffee trees and 600 plantain-shrubs . It climbs up from 1400 meters above sea level 100 meter higher unto 1500 meters
    We are converting the finca it in a more natural place with lots of fruit trees, native plants, large completely natural spaces where one can watch birds and other animals, hiking trails, a camping next to a bamboo-forest. Also we We are pursuing various projects. Recently we started making wine and vinegar from oranges and the pulp of the coffee cherries. Their rich flavours are surprising.
    DO YOU HAVE PARTICULAR SKILLS? See below what we are about to do.
    HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Not only can one get to know the Colombian coffee culture, but can also carry out a wide variety of creative work depending on one skills and interests.
    Colombia has just poor local culture to offer, since in general the population does not cultivate its traditions very much. But the Colombians' share abundantly their virulent zest for life and their cordial openness with you. One is treated everywhere immediately like a friend or a family member.
