Juan M.

Armenia, quindio, Colombia

My name is Juan Carlos. Born in this gorgeous now famous coffee region.

At early age I moved to Morristown, NJ , U. S. A. to find a better working conditions. After trying different jobs, in 1990 found the one I was going to stay for 20 years: High-end italian restaurants, where I had the opportunity to work my way up the ladder. Busboy, Food runner, Waiter, Captain, host, bartender. Working with chef owner Tony Grande, who in his younger life worked as a chef at the Queen Elizabeth ship.
With him I learned what customer service was all about . Having guests at his famous restaurant, "Il Cappriccio" in whippany, NJ, like Whitney Houston, Harrison Ford , Kevin Costner among others. I did have the honor to be their waiter.
I learned that there's no excuse to only perform to the highest, no matter what field you are in.

So here I am back in my country since 2010. Taking pride of the most beautiful and stunning coffee region. declared world heritage site by the UNESCO.
I assure you the best coffee tour experience. I Speak fluent English. I'm a Humble, Outgoing, easy-going and honest human being .
Hope you want to experience the best of the best along with my guidance, and full knowledge of the region.
Thank you .

A Recent Review of this guide

HERO! Juan was waiting for us at the bus station when we arrived. He helped us with our baggage and gave us some snacks he had brought for us. His brand new car was perfectly clean and the AC literally saved us at times. Also, he's an excellent driver, and made us feel comfortable and safe throughout the tour. We only had 1 day to get to know the Eje Cafetero and Juan made it possible by taking us to 6 different little towns and other spots like local, famous coffee shops and farms. This tour is a must!
