Café Cultor: Recycled Coffee Shop

Café Cultor: Recycled Coffee Shop

This coffee shop in Colombia started out in a recycled shipping container

National Coffee Day is September 29. We at The Sitch absolutely love coffee and so we are writing about a unique coffee shop each day leading up to National Coffee Day. 

Café Cultor in Bogota, Colombia is advocating coffee awareness and environmental good all at the same time. There are three Café Cultor locations in Colombia, and they’re all three unique (although the coffee is the same throughout). 

The Original Café Cultor

The very first Café Cultor was opened in a recycled shipping container. On a sunny day, they open up the walls and guests are able to sit outside or even on the roof. Guests can also sit under the shade of the container, if they’d rather have a sense of being indoors.

Wilborada 1047 Bookstore

The second Café Cultor is in a single room of a three story house that was transformed into a bookstore. The coffee is made and purchased in one room, but guests are able to take their drinks and enjoy them anywhere in the home. They’re even able to sit in a comfy arm chair or sofa surrounded by books.

Casa

The third and newest location of Café Cultor opened in 2017 and is named Casa because it is a house (similar to the second location). However, instead of being transformed into a coffee shop/bookstore, this is just a cozy, homey coffee shop. Casa has a back garden with various areas to sit in and guests also have the option to sit indoors and feel quite at “home.”

The Coffees

Aside from the unique experiences that each Café Bogota provides, the coffee experience is the same at all three. Its baristas are all incredibly knowledgeable on the coffees they serve and are happy to inform guests about coffee they’re drinking (how it’s made, where it comes from, etc…). Café Cultor brings awareness to the coffee farmers. The increase in awareness also helps farmers in high-risk areas have a better chance at becoming successful.

Café Bogota seems like an incredible coffee shop and we’d love to check out all three locations one day. What are your thoughts on Café Bogota? Let us know in the comments section below and be sure to subscribe to The Sitch for more coffee news and other entertaining reads.
