Fina Don Eduardo, Salento & Coffee region , Colombia

La Finca is the newest addition to the Plantation House family of hostels in Salento. Now you have the chance to stay on a working coffee far only 20 minutes from the centre of town. The small farmhouse on the coffee farm has enough space for 9 people in a dorm and triple/double room, with some of the best views in the whole region and of course as much fresh coffee as you want! This is a quiet place combining perfectly with a stay at the Plantation House.
The facilities at Finca Don Eduardo are basic, but still very comfortable. There is a dorm room with 6 beds and then a new "Suite" up on a bamboo platform with a balcony with amazing views over the farm and into the valley. The "Suite" has a double and single bed. There is a small kitchen with stove but there is no fridge. The are 2 toilets and showers for guests to use. The shower is solar heated and so is warmest in the afternoon. There is always one staff member at La Finca looking after guests and the farm.

There are several paths on the farm through bamboo woodlands and also natural forest. The farm is a working coffee farm and so the is always something happening with pickers out in the rain collecting coffee beans, drying them or grinding them. This is a relaxing farm and the perfect way to learn more about the production of coffee.

Our suggestion would be to combine Finca Don Eduardo with a stay at the Plantation House. Maybe stay in Plantation House for the first few nights while you visit the sights around Salento and then for the final 2 or 3 nights just chill at La Finca.......the perfect combination for the coffee region of Colombia!

It is sometimes better to leave your heavy luggage at the Plantation House and just take a day pack with essential stuff as the walk down can be muddy and can take 10 - 15 minutes.
How to get there...
Getting to Finca Don Eduardo is easiest from Plantation House and staff will point you in the right direction. Get the bus from Armenia to Salento and get off at the fire station. From there it is a short walk to Planation House which is signposted. From there it is a 10 - 15 minute walk down a muddy path to La Finca. Ask the reception at Plantation House if you can take some Wellington boots with you to use enroute and for walks around the farm.
