Description: Liliana Sabogal is a young and passionate coffee farmer. She inherited her farm from her grandfather and has a long line of coffee farmers in her family.
The Quindio department is part of "The Coffee Triangle" along with two other departments in the region, Caldas and Risaralda
The Coffee Triangle, known locally as the 'Eje Cafetero' is a region of Colombia that lies at the western end of the Andes Mountains, which has become famous for producing excellent coffee.The region is noted for the steep-sloped valleys that make much of the area quite difficult to reach, while the hot and rainy climate is ideal for cultivating coffee. Tourism in the area has been growing over recent years, as more people discover the stunning scenery, warm welcome, and historic architecture to be found here.
There are several reasons that the Coffee Triangle is particularly successful when it comes to coffee cultivation, and the climate is certainly an important feature with consistently warm temperatures and rain throughout the year both helping the growth of the coffee plant.
Another reason that the coffee plant is so successful in this region is that the rich volcanic soil is ideally suited for the plants, with the conditions here better for coffee growing than anywhere else in Colombia.
