San Alberto coffee was recommended to us by a local in Bogota. It's excellent smooth coffee. We bought a few bags to bring home. Try the pour overover or one of the other methods to prepare your coffee to appreciate the flavor.

Love this little cute shop. The coffee and staff were awesome. Nice place to enjoy a drink or eat a small bite to cool off during ones exploring of the old city. Right around the corner from Santo Domingo plaza.

I can't recommend this place enough. We did the coffee "baptism" with one of the owners. It was so abundantly clear that he has a passion for coffee, and over the course of 2 hours, he explained the coffee making process from start to finish....More

Didn’t use it. However, a few people were working on their computers while having their coffee... so I guess there is.
