Day 5b. Quimbaya Panela Tour
Your day will begin with a relaxing journey through the beautiful scenery of the Colombian Coffee Zone. Passing mountains full of crops of coffee, platano, tropical fruits, and yes sugar cane! Traveling towards the small town of Quimbaya, you'll be stopping at a wonderful panela factory where you’ll learn the complete process, as well as enjoying a fresh sample.

Most Colombian Trapiches (Panela factories) are small and only go into production for 2-3 days a week. This trapiche is no exception, only producing this brown gold from Thursday to Saturday.

The production begins in the fields with the backbreaking work of cutting the sugarcane by hand with a machete. The sugarcane is then transported to a Trapiche where it is pressed to allow the green sugarcane juice within to escape, and the discarded stalks set aside to fuel the fires burning over the following day's production.

Next is an intriguing process of working this liquid into the finished product. It’s a process of boiling, stirring, mixing, and scoping the boiling liquid from pan to pan. Continuing for some time until the syrup starts to cool, thicken, and begin to take a new fudge-like form. This is then molded into Panela patties and set aside to cool down completely before it is wrapped and packed for sale.  

Once you’ve learned all there is to know about the finer details of this artisan craft dating back over 400 years into the 1600s, you’ll begin your relaxing journey back to your accommodation with the fresh smell and taste of fresh and healthy panela on your mind.

Day 6: Transfer to PEREIRA AIRPORT

Relax as you're collected from your hotel and enjoy an hour transfer to the Matecaña Internacional Aeropuerto in Pereira.
