In fact this coffee shop is so close to the hotel that my cell phone was picking up a fairly strong Marriott wi-fi signal. I was tasked by my helper in Lima to pick up some coffee so I stopped by this cafe. A diverse choice of coffee varieties and sizes are available for purchase. I bought four different kinds.... More

Colombian sister in law stated this is the best coffee I'll ever taste. I didn't believe until I tasted it for myself. It's like magic and coffee mixed together. Hands down it beats Seattle's coffee, Coffee People, Dutch Brothers, Peets Coffee, Stump Town, and Starbucks. I'm addicted and waiting till a storefront is established in my general area. But until... More

This is a typical Starbucks-type store. But Juan Valdez is local and serves much better coffee, similar to what Starbucks sold in Seattle before it expanded worldwide. I had a great cup of Colombian coffee here and a delicious chicken empanada. I found the staff to be friendly, and one man spoke excellent English. Even a customer added to the... More

The flagship place is located in the "G Zone", 70 Street and 6th and is called “Origenes”. Nice, cozy and a place made both to stay and enjoy or just to stop and go. All type of Colombian coffee and also different ways to serve it. Try de “campesino” cofee, you will love it.

It's the columbian Starbucks. The cafe is obvious really good, like the bananacake. If you don't know where to go for food...at Juan Valdez you always know what you get and it's good

Went to this cafe each day whilst in Bogota and sampled some of the coffee. They have a quant little outdoor area with excellent atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and punctual. Selection of Coffee is great with an easy system of ordering different selections if your Spanish is not great. Had tried some from different regions and always had service... More

You might think that getting a good cup of coffee would be easy in Colombia ... not so. (Maybe they export all their really good stuff?) Thank goodness for Juan Valdez! It might present as a "Starbucks" by another name, but at least you can rely on getting a great coffee every time. And just like a Starbucks, they sell... More

We've all seen Juan Valdez commercials for Folgers. This is the real thing with real good coffee. Perfect place to sit down and rest your tired feet, enjoy the aromas and of course a delicious cappuccino.

The columbian Starbucks - do not miss the opportunity to drink this local coffee and sample the pastries - unfortunately there are also Starbucks on nearly as many corners - so go with the locals.
