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.
