Thursday 8 and Friday 9 December

Our traditional Route of Geographical Indications during our Work Sessions in Medellin offers us a wonderful two-day tour in which we will learn about the ceramics produced in El Carmen de Viboral and the world-famous denomination of origin Café de Colombia.

The first day, we will travel to El Carmen de Viboral and visit a workshop to learn about the process of making ceramics. For more than a century, this hand-decorated clay production has been a source of social, cultural, and economic development for the residents of the area. We will be able to observe the production process and purchase one-of-a-kind handicrafts.


Then we will have lunch, check in at a cozy hotel and have a free afternoon to visit different shops or make our own craft with clay. We will have dinner in a restaurant near the hotel so that we can walk the streets at night. 
The next day after breakfast, we will go to the “zona cafetera”, more precisely to the Hacienda Casa Grande which dates back to 1853, where we will have the opportunity to learn more about coffee, its plantations, and the process that gives Colombian Coffee its distinct flavor.
