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 Belize”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

This coffee shop reminds me of a treehouse. All the coffee is shade grown, organic from Guatemala. The owner, Keith, supports small independent producers. There is free WiFi, and homemade muffins. My favorite is the iced coffee!!

“Cool Building and Hot Drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

My wife and I stopped here for an orange juice (squeezed right in front of us) and coffee during our trip to the town from Robert's Grove. Service was friendly and the owner talked to us while we waited.

“Tree House Coffee Shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

It feels like you are walking up the steps into a tree house. It is very cute and the people were nice. Everyone is relaxed, even the owners’ dog sleeping in the corner.
The coffee was very good, even had a piece of Banana bread that was good.
This place is in the Village of Placencia, so if you are looking for a cup of coffee or free Wi-Fi to get your emails it’s a great place to stop. Very small so don’t show up with a large party and think you are all going to have a seat, there are only about 4 of them.
