Juan Valdez is a place to stop and have a good coffee. This brand is well known around Colombia and outside of Colombia. I was checking the flavor , aroma and taste of this coffee. The service is good , prices are affordable. This coffee shop tries to give to coffee drinkers a moment of relaxation during working day. I... More

Colombia is known for its coffee but there are better places to drink it than in Juan Valdez Cafe. I had an insipid iced coffee. The decor is attractive and the cakes were good but the coffee left me wanting better coffee in Colombia.

The reviews said Juan Valdez was the best place to go for a good cup of coffee, and even our local tour guide said it was the place to go for Colombian coffee. We visited the original location, and enjoy a cup of coffee. This is a coffee chain, and the food is not great, but go for a "tinto".

The coffee is served cold, prices are expensive, the service is delayed, I think it is only known by utilizing the most famous Colombian coffee brand in the world, but there are many more places to get fresh hot coffee and better food

Good coffee but literally a South American Starbucks. Coffees good but over priced. Find a nice cafe anywhere else and get yourself a cup for half the price same quality.

Don't get me wrong... I like Starbucks, but when it comes to coffee Juan Valdez rules! The concept is the same as Starbucks except it is owned by the coffee growers association of Colombia and they know coffee. My home is in MIami and I travel quite a bit international on business,,, there is one in Terminal D! In Colombia... More

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... 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
