The real Colombian coffee

This is the best place for a real Colombian coffee, in whatever form you want to drink it. Double espresso or ice coffee, everything is available as well as a variety of rico pasteles. Very friendly personnel and Wifi make the visit complete.

Every time I go to Colombia I have to have as many Lattes de Arequipe as I can from Juan Valdez. My secret is to order latte de arequipe with not caramel syrup. You will love it.

Good, if greasy pastries. Overpriced yoghourt with fruit and oatmeal. Good coffee. Spacious seating area.

In our trip Bogotá, we probably speed for coffee at a Juan Valdez five times. Usually in Parque 93, but also in Usaquen and Zona T. The product is consistent and good. The stores are attractive, comfortable and unique. The staff are friendly. The value is way better than Sbx. Recommended for everyday.

Mr K is a coffe lover and gave the coffee here top scores. Being a black tea drinker there was not much choice for me, but I got the spicy chai which to my surprise i really enjoyed.

Most coffee in Colombia isn't that good considering it's a major export. Juan Valdez is the exception and on the level of Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and Peet's Coffee in the U.S.
