Amor Perfecto

As one of the pioneers in promoting top-of-the-range Colombian coffee domestically, outposts of Amor Perfecto can be found popping up all over Bogotá. Their exposed-brick-and-glass showcase café in Bogotá's hip Chapinero neighborhood is as much what they term a "coffee lab" as it is a place to while away the day. Year round, you'll find a slew of events and workshops hosted by their highly trained baristas, who concoct delicious drinks like coffee infused with tamarind and raw sugarcane and have won six national championships between the staff.
