Colombia's Starbucks

Pretty much standard fare if you are used to Starbucks! But you get better coffee. You can buy coffee beans as well, not the best in Colombia, but convenient. Check out their t-shirts. Dont be surprised to see an armed guard on-site!

Comparable to Canada's Tim Horton's. Nice to get a good cup of coffee at times. They also had good sandwiches and cool drinks that were often needed sometimes in the extreme heat of the Caribbean Coast cities.

Hello there! Lots of people claim this is the best coffee in the world. However, it is ok. We visited a Juan Valdez at Titan Mall and i ordered a Fruit Frappe of Lulo and Apple (Lulo y Manzana) and when I saw the guy take out some aluminum bag of syrup, I said "Oh no"......Everything in Colombia tends to...

This cafe is a great place for people watching, but also has the best espresso and cappuccino in town. The staff are very friendly, and willing to recommend different coffee experiences. This is a must on any trip to Bogota.

I love the Colombian version of Starbucks! Try an espresso macchiato with areqipe. Basically it's a shot of espresso with a dollop of foamed milk and then topped with areqipe (Colombia's version of dulce de leche). Delish!

Fantastic chain of truly superior quality Colombian coffee and not the mixture that one gets at Starbucks. They have a variety of coffees from the various coffee growing areas of Colombia and a little store where you can coffee realted prosucts and shirts etc... Great service, great prices and they are everywhere. I went to a few locations in Bogota... More
