CARTAGENA | Café del Mural is tucked away down a side street in Getsemani, easily spotted by the bright murals that surround the wall the road. It’s a small homely cafe that’s serious about its coffee. In fact, it’s one of the best places to grab a coffee in Cartagena.
Bogota born owner David Arzayus moved to Cartagena for a change of pace and at Café del Mural he and his team do everything from roasting the coffee beans through to preparation of the final cup. Several kinds of coffees can be enjoyed here, from espresso and filter based classics through to things like ‘Peasant Coffee’ – kind of like Turkish coffee with mixed spices, and Nitro Cold Brew, perfect for the hot Cartagena climate.
Café del Mural also offer an assortment of even more experimental coffee based drinks. Think coffee infused gin fizz cocktails but with coffee, and ‘coffee bombs’ – like a jager bomb but with coffee instead of Jagermeister.
There’s seating inside, and further seating across the narrow street next to the aforementioned colourful mural painted walls. We recommend grabbing a table outside if you can to watch the world go by. And if you’re interested, you can even do a master class in coffee here.
