Colombia is world renown for its coffee, they are one of the top coffee growing countries in the world and they know how to make a delicious cup from their coffee. Here are four places to get a solid cup of coffee in La Candalaria:
Contraste: Coffee Laboratory. A small shop with knowledgeable baristas who will teach you about the coffee process.
Tostao. This is what the locals drink, it is very cheap and worth checking out if you just want a quick cup of coffee (my Colombian friends ordered “Tinto”)
Arte y Passion. They are a barista training school so you can get a full lesson on Colombia’s different growing regions as well as different coffee brewing methods. This is definitely pricier but you get a bit of local education with it.
San Alberto. Just outside of La Candelaria, San Alberto can be found in the Museo del Oro. They are Colombia’s most award winning coffee so go find out why!
