The Coffee Triangle is a part of the Colombian Paisa region famous for growing and producing Colombian coffee, considered by many to be the best in the world. Split into the 3 primary regions of Caldas, Quindio and Risaralda, the coffee region is typically characterized by deeply incised rivers, steep hills and lush foliage. 

The Coffee region is also home to Cocora Valley, a vast rolling green landscape strewn with tall Quindío wax palms, creating breathtaking views and skylines. The palms can grow as high 70 metres, and are a national symbol of Colombia. Another popular destination in the coffee region is the colourful town of Salento, a beautiful colonial small town with charming cobblestone streets and craft markets.
