Si bien no podemos ofrecerle la oportunidad de conocer a "el" Juan Valdez (después de todo, es solo un personaje ficticio), en Surtrek podemos prometerle la oportunidad de descubrir su espíritu. Lo que estamos diciendo es que puedes encontrar su esencia experimentando la vida en la región cafetera de Colombia o en una plantación tradicional de café cafetero. Lo que ofrecemos es la oportunidad de experimentar las muchas contrapartes de Juan Valdez en la vida real para tener una idea de su estilo de vida, aprender su cultura y tal vez incluso tener una idea de cómo ven la vida. Lo invitamos no solo a probar uno de los aspectos más destacados de Colombia: el café, sino también a experimentar uno de los tours más singulares de América del Sur. Antes incluso de comenzar con una descripción introductoria de este recorrido, dejemos en claro: nos encanta este “néctar de los dioses de color marrón ámbar”, tanto en su forma de cafés especiales como “convencionales”. Aunque aplaudimos de todo corazón los frutos del trabajo de los productores de cafés especiales, también apreciamos cómo las mezclas convencionales han dado forma casi literalmente a la cultura de este condado. Por eso, hemos combinado ambas experiencias, llevando a los viajeros tanto a fincas de café de especialidad colombianas como a las tradicionales.
