"World?s Best Coffee" Colombia Favorite Tip by WaRPer

Colombia General: 65 reviews and 53 photos

Favorite thing: Colombia’s coffee is among one of the best in the world. Though Colombian themselves don’t have much chance to drink their own A+ coffee (most of the highest quality ones are exported to Japan!!)

Anyway, for the B-B+ grade coffee is well…good enough (way better than Starbucks – guaranteed!!) Just ask the locals where to get it, but be a little careful, only buy it from people you can trust. Since coffee exporting always comes with drug trafficking, the coffee’s smell is the best way concealing cracks and everybody knows that. The police will not let you pass thru the immigration upon their suspect, they might even rip your bag apart. Before paying for your coffee, just ask the retailer to pack it good, if possible ask for their company’s logo stamped on the package or a valid name card will do it.
