In the morning I visited coffee finca of Don Elias. I wanted to buy organic coffee from his farm to take with me. Unfortunately he did not sell it but he recommended a good place where I could get it. He explained me where the place was. I expected a family home or a shop, but found a lovely Café Jesús Martín instead.
It was only opened in August 2008. The café offers its guests a unique experience to have a drink in a house of the antioqueña architecture, full of sounds, aromas, colours and flavours. Art plays an important role. The walls are decorated with a collection of paintings and several wall paintings, in its corners there are beautiful sculptures as well elements present in the coffee culture. Café Jesús Martín is the space for reading (they have excellent art books that guests can skim over while having a drink) and you can learn everything about the coffee.
On the menu they offer coffee prepared on different ways and with different supplements, home-made sweets (jam, cakes) and wine. They also prepare breakfasts and sometimes sandwiches and lasagne.
Favorite Dish: I had a nice cup of cappuccino while having a look at the books and chatting to the guy at the bar. And of course, I bought a package of coffee (that was the main reason to come here) and a few packages of dried banana chips.
Later I also met the friendly owner lady and she proudly explained me about the café, from the first idea to the final realization. I really enjoyed my visit and was thinking about coming back at night for a cup of wine. But once I got to the guest house I was just too tired and too lazy to return.
