Quindio is another small town like Filandia, and we entered the highly recommended Cafe Jesus Martin. We were treated to a presentation on coffee with a explanation on the different kinds of beans and varieties of coffee. One of the cafe’s baristas then gave us a demo on the fine art of pouring milk and decorating the froth. Needless to say the coffee was superb as well. On a caffeine high, we headed to our new residence for the night, Casa de Campo El Delirio
This was one of the most impressively styled properties I had ever come across. All painstakingly furnished by its energetic and eccentric owner, ‘Cookie’. She was a bubbly character who bounced around as she narrated story after story, and she had everyone in fits of laughter. In a way, she encapsulated everything Colombian – extremely warm and endearing, and in no time she made everyone feel at home. Her cooks served up a lavish 5 star meal any Master Chef would have been proud of. It was then to bed after a long and thoroughly enjoyable day..This blog is part of an Off-The-Beaten-Track Travel Diary. Click on the links below to navigate through this journey.
