Friendly baristas but extremely slow (while there was only one client before me). Have been here last year and quality has gone down terribly. Coffee is not hot, cappuccino barely has foam, too much milk to be a cappuccino.

A good coffee shop has to serve great coffee (yes), be a good and comfortable place to meet with friends or colleagues (yes), have free wifi (yes) and friendly and welcoming staff (yes). Juan Valdez scored on every point. My first experience of this chain was very positive.

Sounds very easy, an Expresso.....but no it was not possible. Chilean attitud and not willing to help you make it happen. I offered to pay double in US dollars and they laughed.

Juan Valdez is a great cafe with high vaulted ceilings and tasty coffee. The downside was there were no iced drinking available due to the lack of ice. But I was happy with my hot coffee all the same b

This is real coffee. Best coffee house from Colombia. They offer all the varieties, latte, expresso, etc. Pastries are just OK. Better than the other green chain.

Juan Valdez is a Colombian coffee shop that follows the trend created by Starbucks, which is overrated in my humble opinion. I like Juan Valdez coffee better (I've been to stores in Bogota and Santiago).
