Coffee PlantationMay 14, 2018 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C
We visited a coffee plantation in Armenia, which was interesting.
Here were my notes from the tour:
Colombia coffee - best coffee in world is from panama, jamaica and then colombia.
Takes 2 yrs to make forst production. Bery 8 months pick coffee, for 20 years. Best coffee, first 4 years of harvesting.
Production of coffee costs 12,000COP for 1 pound.
Good worker picks 100 kilos or 80,000 pesos (10 buckets) per day. They need to pay 10,000 pesos per day for food.
Sizes 16-20 (biggest) exported. 12 to 16 kept in Colombia. Same taste.
Black ivy coffee from thailand - elephant shit. Most exoensive. 1 pound is 700usd.
2nd most expensive is Peru with animal too.
3rd most expensive if skopi luak.
Bitter part of coffee is from protein. The animals can absorb the protein. So the coffee beans are less bitter. More sweet and sour.
6 times more caffeine in filter coffee than espresso.
