La Victoria coffee farm

La Victoria is one of the biggest and oldest coffee farms of northern Colombia. It was founded in 1892 by Charles and Alice Bowden, a couple of English entrepreneurs who arrived to the country to work in the development of the railways. The property originally comprised 1223 hectares in an area that was, centuries ago, inhabited by indigenous communities of the ancient Tayrona civilization.
