Colombian coffee, plus sugar and more: vintage footage

April 29, 2012

Slight change of subject.

Take a look at these vintage movies (1925 and 1936) about some regions of Colombia.

They show Manizales and a coffee farm, Cali, Bogota and several other cities.

The country around Cali and its sugar cane plantations and industry, etc.

Except for the hand-picking of coffee, everything else has been mechanized and modernized.

Another thing that has not changed is the teaching of coffee fundamentals to small children, in order to make them fully aware of the real value of being in love with their land and their crop.

As a matter of fact, there are several locations in the coffee regions where they host Coffee Pageants in which the “Queen” is not the most physically beautiful, but the girl who knows most about coffee.
