Cafe de la Fonda is a small coffee factory located behind Bogotá’s Central Cemetery. The other day, Bogotá Bike Tours visited and owner Julian Jaramillo was kind enough to show us around. I’m no coffee connoisseur, but those who know tell me that they make some of the best coffee in Bogotá. Of course, generally, the high-quality coffee gets exported, while the cheap stuff is sold domestically – and is often not even dignified with the name café, but deemed tinto (tinted water) instead.
Café de la Fonda also produces chocolates. And makes a drink containing a coffee and cocoa beans mixed with a spice called Cafe de los Dioses. Quite delicious.
