Colombia's 'Coffee Triangle' Declared UNESCO World Heritage Site

Colombia’s coffee region, or properly dubbed, the “Café Triangle,” was officially named a UNESCO World Heritage site on June 25 after being initially nominated back in January, 2010.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Landscape for its centennial tradition of coffee growing, producing the best coffee in the world, the aroma and culture of this particular region in Colombia is a popular tourist destination.

The site serves as an example of a sustainable and productive cultural landscape that is unique and representative of a tradition that is a strong symbol for coffee growing areas worldwide.

According to the UNESCO World Heritage List, this is the heart of Colombia where the coffee region expands to six farming landscapes, 18 urban centers, 47 municipalities, and three major Colombian cities in the departments of Caldas, Risaralda and Quindío.

A countless number of coffee farms spread throughout this region where international tourists can taste the richness of the coffee beans and enjoy the breathtaking views of the surroundings.

“It is one of the most beautiful regions in Colombia featuring nature, parks, art, coffee culture, and adventure sports,” said Maria Claudia Lacouture, president of ProExport Colombia, in a written release.

In the Coffee Triangle, tourists will experience the culture and gastronomy of the region which will excel any description of the breathtaking landscape.

The Coffee Triangle is easily accessible through any airport of three main cities of the region: Armenia, Manizales and Pereira, all of which have multiple connections to Bogota.
