Great way to spend the morning in Cartagena
One of the highlights of our trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided personal insight into Colombia’s coffee roots.

The history of coffee in Colombia certainly is deep and fascinating. Thanks for learning about it with us. We hope you keep the Flavor of Bogota team in mind when you drink your delicious brew at home.

A elevated coffee buzz
Feb. 2020
We tried different specialty coffees at different cafes and roasters. We got to see how each of the baristas prepared the coffee in different ways, how those preparations affect the coffee flavor and how to rate and grade the coffee. It was an enlightening experience and my friends that aren't as much of coffee devotees as I am enjoyed the experience.

We're glad the whole group enjoyed the workshop. We love to teach everyone - coffee lovers as well as those that don't like coffee - about the role of coffee in the lives of so many Colombians.

Highlight of my trip!
Jan. 2020
This tour is a must-do in Cartagena! Milena was our guide and she was fun, knowledgeable, and engaging. I learned so much about coffee and can't wait to continue to apply this knowledge back home. This tour is perfect if you love coffee or if you just want to learn more about how it's made, where it's made, and the business of it all. Highly recommend!

Really interesting tour!
Dec. 2019 • Friends
Milena was a wonderful tour guide. She is amazingly knowledgeable about all things coffee. During the tour, we went to three coffee places. At each place, we tasted coffee and Milena explained about the growing of coffee, the making of coffee and the business of coffee. A wonderful way to spend three hours!

Coffee Tour with Milena
Oct. 2019 • Friends
Highly recommend this tour if you are in Cartagena. Our tour guide Milena was extremely knowledgeable. She was sweet, spoke perfect English (which is pretty hard to come by in Cartagena) and answered all of our questions. We tried 3 different types of coffee prepared in 3 different ways in 3 different coffee shops while learning about how coffee is made from beginning to end. We also learned how to properly drink coffee and identify its many complex flavor profiles.

We're so glad you enjoyed your coffee workshop with Milena. She is super passionate about coffee and loves to share that with others. There are so many flavors to find in Colombian coffee - it's an exciting discovery. Thank you for learning with us.

Coffee Wisdom!
Jun. 2019
Milena was the absolute BEST guide I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Super punctual, knowledgable, kind, clear, and easy to converse with. She is full of wisdom about Colombian coffee culture, production, business, and tasting, and has a very personal connection to coffee (her dad was a coffee farmer). I loved learning about how to support sustainable coffee businesses in Colombia and learn how to be a more ethical coffee conisseuer. Do this workshop! Highlight of my trip.

Apr. 2019 • Solo
As the the title states, this tour was simply awesome. Our tour guide, Milena was really well versed in her knowledge about everything coffee. By the end of it all, I came out with more knowledge and appreciation for my cup of coffee knowing everything that goes into it. Do yourself a favor when coming to Cartagena, book this tour. You won't regret it!

Thank you for those glowing words! Milena is an amazing woman, both because of her knowledge of coffee and her passion for it. And her passion for Cartagena!! We're so glad you enjoyed it. And thanks for sharing with us what you liked about the workshop!

Milena is the BEST.
Jul. 2018 • Family
We had a family of 5 from NY, and were lucky enough to have the tour from Milena. Her heart, passion, and knowledge regarding coffee was such a pleasure to experience.
She is a super star in her field.

She even took us to a fantastic lunch place and we got to hang out!

Fantastic coffee tasting tour!!!
Mar. 2018 • Friends
We had an outstanding time during our specialty coffee tasting tour! We just happened to meet Karen, the founder (and also author and university professor of coffee), in Bogota and we subsequently took the tour in Cartagena - it was fantastic! And our tour guide, Milena, was equally passionate - and we were surprised that even the workers in the coffee shops took great pride in their coffee/techniques (which is MUCH different than most places in the US). We learned so much about how Colombia coffee is unique/special and enjoyed seeing and tasting several different methods of brewing coffee!
