One of the best things about going on a vacation is all the memories you’ll make. But while memories are beautiful, it’s also worth looking for something a little more tangible that you can bring back. The right purchase can serve as a reminder of your trip and improve your quality of life. This is especially true if you’re a coffee lover who is planning a trip to Colombia.
Colombian coffee is famous the world over. It is one of the most productive coffee-growing areas, and the quality of the beans produced in Columbia matches their quantity. It used to be something of a hidden treasure, but in recent years it has become a popular destination for coffee lovers from around the world.
If you’re planning a trip, then you should be on the lookout for a few things that you’ll want to bring back home. Even if you don’t love coffee yourself, these suggestions will be great if you’re looking for a gift for someone in your life who enjoys coffee.
A bag of specialty coffee
While Colombian coffee is shipped out of the country and all across the world, you can still find plenty of unique coffee brands in the country that you can’t find anywhere else.
Local coffee shops like Amor Perfecto and Azahar offer you a chance to taste some of the freshest coffee in the world with a distinctly local flair. Visit one of these shops for yourself and bring home a bag.
While coffee shops across Colombia sell some of the freshest coffee available there is still one place where things get even fresher. If you visit a coffee farm, you can get coffee made from beans that have been freshly harvested.
You can tour many of these farms and take home a bag as a souvenir of your unique experience.
Coffee flavored snacks
Coffee isn’t just for drinking, it can also be a tasty addition to all sorts of foods and snacks. While you’re in Colombia, you should definitely try some of the local coffee-flavored ice creams but if you want something to bring home you need to look for something less likely to melt in your suitcase.
Coffee flavored chocolate is a favorite around the world. If you’re looking for something a little more adult, then consider bringing home a coffee-infused alcoholic beverage.
A coffee cup
When looking to bring food and drinks back to your home country from abroad, you need to make sure that you follow all the rules. These vary from country to country, but usually, they have to do with making sure that the food you bring is properly sealed.
If you want to avoid dealing with these rules, then you can buy something non-perishable, a good old coffee cup. A coffee cup is a great way to remember your trip.
You can look at your cup every morning and remember the fun you had. It’s even better if you’re drinking real Colombian coffee out of the cup you got from Colombia!
By the way, after getting these tasty coffee beans back home, the story does not end, it just begins. Storing them is something you will need to know how to do, and making coffee as it should be is another mastery for you to learn. Coffee can become an amazing hobby if you really dive into it.
