A country with a region specifically called The Coffee Axis is sure to have some of the best coffee shops in the globe. That, together with free high-speed WiFi, is a recipe for the ultimate remote working spot. We’ve identified seven cafes in Bogota that are impeccable, the perfect spots to both freelance your day away and enjoy a tasty coffee.
This extra-large branch of the popular Juan Valdez coffee chain is located in the Zona G neighborhood of Chapinero in Bogotá. While Juan Valdez Cafes are scattered throughout the city, the Orígenes branch is hugely popular with those in search of a cafe with WiFi. Set over three stories, Orígenes is easily spacious enough to accommodate demand, and the internet connection is fast and strong. Throw in great coffee, a pleasant roof terrace, and food options, and Orígenes ticks all the boxes for freelancers in Bogotá.
Located in Chapinero, Amor Perfecto is a coffeehouse that contains a coffee laboratory, which can be seen from the shop. It’s a pioneer that brings regional coffee from the farms into the city, offers a range of beans from a variety of regions in Colombia that vary in taste, and imports different preparation techniques. Amor Perfecto also produces its own coffee, which is available to purchase from the shop. Most tables have power sockets and the music is calm and low, which makes it ideal for concentrating and being productive.
Les Amis is a little coffee shop with free WiFi and a vintage mood, and it serves Argentinean pastries and snacks. Located on the second floor of a small house in Quinta Camacho, Les Amis differentiates itself from the other shops by its relaxed atmosphere, attentive and polite service, and very quiet spaces. You can hardly hear a sound other than the background music and the time buzzer of the oven, which reminds you to try out their savory croissants, chocolate cakes, and “alfajores.”
Café del Eje is a new café that aims to bring the best grains from the country’s coffee region to the capital city. The shop has a trendy vibe, and also serves natural juices and daily made Colombian pastries. WiFi here is probably the fastest you’ll find in the city, as the owner made it his mission to transform Café del Eje into the best place to work in the neighborhood. They provide all the important facilities so freelancers feel welcome and comfortable. The shop also organizes different events on Sundays, such as coffee-tasting workshops and an introduction to coffee cupping–reason enough to return at the weekends.
The flagship branch of the popular independent cafe chain in the hip neighborhood of Quinta Camacho is perhaps the best of the three Cafe Cultors in Bogota. It’s certainly the best for working, with a good WiFi signal and comfortable chairs (plus a conference room available for meetings). With some of the best baristas in the city, beautiful art on the walls, and a peaceful patio area complete with a water fountain and chirping birds, Cafe Cultor is like a little oasis of peace and tranquillity in the heart of Bogota.
