If you want to learn more about the history and the legend about some Colombian rums this experience is for you.

We will start with a short story about rum, the sugar cane and how this plant ended up in the Americas: Renato will guide you through six Colombian and Cartagena’s rums combining them with different local chocolates. You will also learn a bit more about this delicious fruit called cacao.

At the end you will prepare a rum based cocktail which you can enjoy at the studio or at the stunning terrace of our Caffé Lunático.
All this with the spectacular view of San Felipe’s castle and la Popa.

Our Delicious Story

I am María, executive chef and founder of Caffé Lunático, a renowned restaurant in the coolest neighbourhood of Cartagena, Getsemaní!

I have studied and developed my career in Spain. I have worked in several Michelin Star Restaurants in the Basque Country and Catalonia. Since my Grandma was Spanish my experience in that country made me recognize aromas and flavours which reminded me of my Grandma’s kitchen 🙂 .

After 10 years I decided to come back to Colombia and opened Caffé Lunático with the intention to mix flavours from both cuisines, Colombian and Spanish.

Now, I have embarked in a new adventure where myself, along with other chefs, deliver a variety of cooking workshops.
