Atmosphere and coffee was delightful! I brought home some whole beans to enjoy when I got home! I would love to go back and enjoy this little place again!

My wife and I went here on the last day of our week long vacation and my only regret is we didn't come here sooner. The coffee was great. I don't have a lot of experience outside of starbucks but I don't think I will ever have coffee this good in Virginia. We ordered 3 coffees each before finally leaving.... More

Definitely the best coffee shop on old SJ for the discerning client. Don't need sugar or cream additives in their stuff, it's that good. Made it my regular morning stop during our week stay in SJ.

It is worth stopping here for at least one coffee, though it wasn't the best coffee we had in Old San Juan. I do come from a city with great coffee options, so I my expectations were pretty high. It was good, but didn't surpass what I have at home. The bean to cup vibe is great and worth supporting.... More

We stopped here on our Food tour, and learned about the whole process from bean to cup, as well as the different types of beans. The cafe is a Large facility that does still have an open air courtyard in the middle. It would make a great place to hold a meeting. We returned later to buy some whole beans... More

Flavors of San Juan Tour (with fabulous Victor as our guide) took us here to sample their yummy coffee! We returned to buy the beans to take home! Worth a visit!

Place looks good, but coffee was served cold and too white for my taste. When I requested to pour more black coffee in it, the assistant told me that an extra charge will take place. Too expensive, taking in consideration that there is a lot of different places in San Juan where you can have coffee and toast cheaper and... More

This was our second stop on the food tour. They have the best coffee I have ever tasted. Our tour guide gave us a lesson on coffee which included a power point presentation. The coffee is grown on a local plantation. The beans are cleaned and sun dried before roasting and shipping. The cleanest tasting coffee I ever had as... More

Fantastic coffee (beautiful design), great snacks and sandwiches. The tostada, croissant, fresh OJ, mango frappe were also very good. Beautiful and a simple interior.
