“Perfect place to have a Coffee in Cartagena de Indias”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Despite being coined with the term "the Colombian Starbucks", Juan Valdez is much more than a coffee chain. The name "Juan Valdez" corresponds to the famous fictional character who has been the flagship of the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia since 1958. After being recognized as an international brand of recognition, Juan Valdez opened it's first coffee shop in 2002 and since then the company has expanded to over 200 stores in Colombia,
Aruba, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru and the U.S.

The Juan Valdez mentioned in this review corresponds to the one at "Plaza de la Universidad". Located next to the "Hotel Casa San Agustin", this Juan Valdez is the perfect place to refresh yourself with one of their many cold coffees including their delicious "Nevados" with arequipe or mocha!

Remember, when you buy, drink and enjoy a Juan Valdez coffee you are supporting thousands of coffee farmers and their families. Independently of what you end up buying, you will be enjoying authentic Colombian coffee, trust me... you won't see coffee with the same eyes ever again!

“Sloooooooooow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Slow down, because the staff is not going to get faster. Check that your coffee is what you ordered and try to avoid the banos. But the quality of the coffee is really nice and it's a central place to cool down from a day in town.

“Best coffee in Colombia, seriously.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Similar to chain coffee shops like Starbucks, it delivers the buzz and is always packed. An iced coffee after stumbling around on the streets ogling overhead architecture and sweating is a true pleasure.
