Colombia Reports is a Colombian news website in English, founded in 2008 by Dutch journalist Adriaan Alsema and headquartered in Medellín. It claims to be "independent" and "not affiliated with any political or social organization."[2]

The site started "as a weblog just to bring Colombian news in English in a way it wasn’t being brought."[3] Alsema claimed in a 2009 interview that "even though Colombia is one of the most important countries for U.S. foreign policy in Latin America, the information available to those that don’t speak Spanish was very limited."

On February 26, 2014, Colombia Reports received angel funding from GITP Ventures[4] in order to more aggressively expand the company's offerings in the marketplace.[5]
