Cappuccino in Columbia
Latte Art is a delightful presentation of ‘decorated’ coffee and is always done with care. Apparently it is not exclusive to urban coffee houses! One would not expect to find such care and artistic ability such as this presentation, in a little out-of -the-way place, a “hidden away backpacker’s paradise”, in Columbia, South America.
This exquisite work of art was served to an author of a travel blog and his wife in the little town of Salento, Columbia, the gateway to the Cocora Valley” where a lot of the different types of coffee beans area grown. Besides coffee beans (and exquisite coffee ‘art’) in the Cocora Valley, one will find the “Parque Nacional de Cafe” (National Coffee Park). This is a theme park offering a museum and exhibitions detailing the history, culture and process of growing and producing coffee. An amusement park also in the valley has rides and shows and is connected to the exhibitions by a cable car (gondola lift); or, one can walk between the two areas via an ecological trail that passes through a plantation of many varieties of coffee bushes.
Perhaps it isn’t such a surprise to discover a carefully (and artistically) decorated Cappucino after all!
Grab a cup of coffee and settle back for a delightful and entertaining read from Travellingmoons.
