In July we are traveling to Colombia for our Culinary Passport series.
Our Culinary Passport series explores the histories, traditions and cultures of different cultures around the world.

¡Bienvenidos, al Encanto! Join us for an exclusive evening of exploring the rich and diverse flavors of Colombian coffee. This guided tasting event is designed for coffee enthusiasts and curious newcomers alike.

Since the early 18th century, Colombia has held a special relationship with coffee. The ideal climate and fertile soil in Colombia’s mountainous regions created perfect conditions for coffee cultivation.

Today, coffee is one of Colombia’s most important agricultural products and exports. Colombian coffee is grown primarily in the “Coffee Triangle,” a region known for its ideal growing conditions, including high altitudes, consistent rainfall, and rich volcanic soil.

Coffee cultivation supports the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of farmers and their families. It is also deeply woven into the cultural fabric of the country, symbolizing Colombian hospitality, tradition, and pride. The National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia, established in 1927, has played a crucial role in promoting Colombian coffee worldwide and ensuring the welfare of coffee farmers.
