With Flavors of Bogota you will learn about the history of coffee all the way up to new wave coffee brewing methods. Learn about coffee growing regions in Colombia, what makes one region different from another, and details about coffee farmers and associations. Discover how to taste these specialty coffees to fully appreciate the fragrance, aroma, flavor, and unique characteristics.

Talk with coffee shop owners and managers, baristas, and other coffee experts. These passionate people often personally know the coffee farmers that grew the beans in your cup. Many of the shops here roast their own beans in-house. And all of them with share with you their love for coffee in Colombia.
