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!

“Best Coffee in Placencia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Graham is a Scottish Canadian Expat. His coffee rides Donkeys, busses and boats in 50 pound shipments, roasted at the guatemalan farm. You can't get fresher or more gourmet. Its a cool place in a treehouse atmosphere, and Graham is always up for a chat. It was on my daily routine. Make it yours.

“Tree House of a coffee house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you want to get away from it all and still have a cup o' joe this is the place to go. It's literally a tree house and makes you feel like you're far away from home. Bring a good book and read here for a couple hours.

“Great way to kickstart your day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Loved the great cup of coffee every morning with a baked goodie as well as an iced latte as an afternoon pick me up. Nice place to meet some locals. Owner and staff are very friendly in this unique setting. Who knew- a Scotsman who can make a great cup of coffee! Do not miss visiting this place early and often!
