During my layover at El Dorado International Airport in Bogota I found some great coffee that helped me through the middle of the night.
Best Coffee In Bogota Airport (BOG)
My plane landed before 3:00 am and the lounge did not open until 5:00 am, which left a gap of more than two hours. What better way to fill it than by drinking coffee?
There are more institutional coffee shops at BOG. For example, Dunkin Donuts was absolutely hopping at 4:00 am. But I avoid those places.
Instead, I found a little place in Terminal 1 called Cafe Gourmet. Not a fancy name, to be sure, but this little shop had a couple of nice coffee machines and some regional coffee that looked promising.
A friendly barista made my cappuccino (¡Sin azúcar, por favor!).
It was nicely made and tasted great:
So nice, in fact, I ordered a second:
…and considered taking some coffee to go:
As I sat in a gate area enjoying my coffee and watching dozens of people waiting in line at Dunkin Donuts, I felt bad for those travelers who flock to chain coffee at the expense of something much better.
But now you know where to go. I highly recommend Cafe Gourmet and remain thankful that it was open at 3:00 am when most everything else was closed.
