Colo Coffee Usaquén

Artisans from Colo follow coffee beans through cultivation, harvest, roasting and, finally, the preparation. They have a great selection of regional coffees that allow you to taste test your way through the country. Make sure to try the Castillo Black Honey which undergoes a prolonged fermentation. Pastries and food are also excellent. Combined with slick, modern decor of dark wood, lush plants, concrete and brick — truly one of the best coffee chains on the continent. The Financial Times agrees, calling Colo one of the best independent coffee shops in the world in 2021.

Bogotá has a rich, diverse, and complex coffee culture that is defined by the Colombia's diversity and inequality. Alongside the humble cigarrerías and street vendors, cafe chains and stylish coffee shops have popped up, offering Italian-style espresso drinks. The traditional cup of coffee in Colombia is known as tinto or tintico. Ground coffee is added to boiling water directly and is allowed to brew for a few minutes. Many of the third wave coffee shops are also micro-roasters, selling and serving incredibly fresh single-origins and blends. Many baristas are business owners themselves and they tend to have strong relationships with coffee producers and roasters. Make sure to explore the many aspects of Bogota's coffee scene: the affordable tintico, the upscale cappuccino, or the exquisitely natural Chemex brew.
