The best coffee in Bogota

I have on purpose visited this shop for buying coffee as the locals say it's the best you can have not just in Bogota, but in whole Columbia. And I did :) They have also cookies to eat while enjoying the coffee which you need to try out ! And a lot of coffee machines, mugs and other very nice... read more

There are many locations in Bogota. We went to the one near Parque de los Periodistas (under the Hotel Bh Bicentenario) and the location near Parque 93. Both offered excellent service. The Parque 93 location is bigger with more outdoor and indoor seating. I wanted to buy some coffee beans to take home and couldn't figure out what was what.... More

Great coffee, wide selection of coffee and other drinks. More, the cakes, muffins and biscuts, they are excellent!!! A must have, the 'torta de banano' (banana pie), it is delicious. Be patient, few people serving, unfortunately

Strong coffee that appears to be a little over-roasted. For some reason the milk they use tastes different, but still tasty and satisfying. Their desserts are excellent. I especially am fond of the Oreo Cheesecake. The friend I was with bought 5 bags of coffee to bring home. They ground and resealed all the bags. I thought this was really... More

Not only can you get coffee and a sweet snack here, but you can buy the coffee in a variety of sized containers, as well as gift sets. It is usually busy.

This may seem almost a cliche to those of us who have seen Juan in commercials on TV. This chain is not spectacular but serves a good cup of coffee for a reasonable price.

Too small and crowded inside...ordering line takes all available room in the shop. Although the product variety is not as big as what you could find at the airport store, you can still buy the basic Juan Valdes' products. Attendants were very helpful. Again, very, very small shop.

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!
