When we think of exploring our countries or islands for me it would be Puerto Rico we think of good foods and drinks such as Rum or Piña Coladas. However we forget the coffee plantations. Have you visited a coffee farm in your country?In Puerto Rico, coffee has been a basic element of the island’s life, culture and business. Cultivated and harvested in the central region of the Island, and now not only the locals enjoy this local produce, but tourists can enjoy in the form of tours to the local coffee plantations and even coffee festivals. Experience the local coffee by attending annual coffee festivals in your country or place of vacation.Puerto Rico has approximately 4,000 coffee farms that occupy an estimated 40,000 acres of land in the center of the island. Farmers use this land to produce about 20 million pounds of coffee a year, generally exporting about 10 percent of the crop.So when thinking about exploring foods and drinks in your country or island, remember the local coffee. In my island of Puerto Rico it is easy since almost every town has several local bakeries that serve a good local coffee, be it black or like I love “café con leche” which is coffee with milk or cream (it must be warmed up), and brown sugar. Make sure to support local businesses as much as you can.
