Coffee History

It is possible to identify four periods in the Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia´s (PCC) history: the Pre-Hispanic or Pre-Columbian era, the settlement of the territory during the Antioquian colonization, the coffee production expansion, and the modernization of coffee growing. Although the landscape experienced significant transformations during each of these periods, evidence especially refers to the changes registered since the Antioquian colonization.

Across these periods, it is important to underline the ongoing efforts of coffee growers and their institutions to find sustainable technologies, techniques and production systems.
