The best coffee I had in Colombia, by a long way. Loved Concita so much I had to buy one! Experienced a monumental thunder storm from this safe haven and watched the street turn in to a river.

When in Rome.... I'm a big coffee drinker, and Colombia is well-known for its coffee making, so I visited Juan Valdez numerous times during my trip. It's fun to sit down, share a dessert, and sip coffee with friends. Plus, they make all kinds of fun coffee libations, so not only is the coffee great, but they feature all sorts... More

Juan Valdez is sometimes compared with the ubiquitous American franchise. Both are in every mall and shopping street. (We particularly like the one in parque 93) The difference is that Juan Valdez has exceptional coffee brewed to Colombian tastes. Colombians care about their coffee, and line up for Juan Valdez. The pastries are not to be missed.

The REAL coffee experience. This is a wonderful place to learn about coffee, its varieties, how to make it properly, and to enjoy a fabulous cup of coffee. A true experience.

I always prefer to take coffee in Juan Valdez chain in Columbia due to good quality of espresso - short black and wifi connection.

Don't get how is it ... that they have an arequipe latte in their menu but when I ask it cold they tell me I gotta pay the latte plus the arequipe as additional topping. Doesn't make any sense!

For years seeing commercials of Juan Valdez and his donkey - I didn't know there was actually a chain of coffee shops. Was it because I have seen the iconic figure for years - that some sense of magic was brewed into the coffee - one of best cups of coffee ever!

Good coffee, my daughter likes the hot chocolate. Never had a bad pastry here Keep in mind ... prices are more in line with US, but if you don't mind, it's a safe choice for the American visitor
