Description: Above Grounds Coffee has established a direct connection with small independent farmers in Antigua, Guatemala. Hand-picked, processed & roasted by small family operations. Their 100% mountain grown and 100% Arabica coffee beans are shade grown, hand-picked and then processed to organic standards. All fields meet elevation requirements for Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) grade and some meet the Fancy (F) grade. These two top grades (Fancy and SHB) total less than 2.5% off all coffee produced globally!

Situated in a tree house, this funky place has the best coffee in town. It is a relaxing space to catch up on emails over a cup of joe and some fresh baked treat.

Very cute treehouse-like coffee shop. My boys were craving donuts one morning and after striking out at several places I found some here (Honduran donuts made by a local lady). They were simply unassuming-looking cinnamon-sugar donuts that I wrongly thought my boys wouldn't be crazy about, but one bite of these delicious, chewy yeast donuts was all it took for... More

Cute little place and if you're on the front porch there's a little ocean breeze blowing through. By far the best coffee in town and the owner (Keith) and staff are always helpful and friendly. I was in town for a week and I had coffee and a banana muffin probably 3 of the mornings... Usually a nice group of... More

Decent coffee drinks. Baked goods (i.e. bagel) not that great. Out of their juices when we were there. Internet access, fine. I like the design of it, kind of has a tree house feel, but there is nothing about it that makes me want to rush back there. If I'm dying for some caffeine and I see it, I'll stop.... More

So refreshing to have a hot, great cup of coffee! The view was really nice from our perch, and the fresh orange juice was a plus. A bit pricey but overall worth it. I say try it out!

but they have this concoction made with cucumber, lime, pineapple and spinach that I kept going back for. I must also mention the homemade donuts that were fluffy and sugary and yummy, and the wonderful carved shells I bought to take home with me. The artwork on them was exquisite. If you are looking for a handcrafted item, check them... More

Above Grounds is a cool little place to get your morning started if you like a good cup of coffee. It does set off the ground about 10 feet so it is a good view point for people watching as you sip on a cup. They make a good latte and have some doughnuts that are quite tasty. Easy to... More
