Best coffee in San Juan! Also, free wifi for customers. This shop was recommended to us by Carmen, our tour guide for '' Flavors of San Juan ''. You can also purchase the beans to take home.

I marked as gone in November but actually I go there almost every week when I have to go to San Juan on business or shopping.

I live in San Juan and make a near-weekly stop here for my coffee. I get the whole bean, and if they don't have it up front, they usually have it in the back. Great sandwiches too - never been disappointed!

I don't like coffee and have never drank it. However, I drank a tiny cup here which is more than I ever have. It was very smooth and not overpowering!

I admit it - I am a bit of a coffee snob. This place has some of the best coffee! It's single origin and grown right here in Puerto Rico on the owner's family coffee plantation. If you buy the beans there, they guarantee that it was roasted and packed in house that same day or the day before -... More

I buy their coffee, which is great, and take it home. While there, I have a cup or two made by them. One of these days, I may try their sandwiches. They look great.
