“World class coffee - one of best I ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

This place deserves top classification for coffee quality, atmosphere and price. It is great that Fernando keeps his coffee at the highest quality and his place with local atmosphere with fair prices. The coffee and home-made chocolate I had were excellent, rich in taste, very strong (coffee) and very fresh (both). It is always nice to meet the owner personally and talk about his concept and different types of products he does. Top class! And wishing good luck!

“Really great coffee and lot's of great menu items”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Fernando's is primarily a coffee roaster / coffee shop... next they do great chocolate (bars and for drinking)... but they have a really peaceful courtyard where many folks come with their Spanish tutors to do Spanish class over some nice coffee or snack.
The staff is very nice and also show tremendous helpfulness and patience with gringos who are attempting to learn Spanish.
We love their coffee go here a couple of times each week. Also great wifi signal...

Ate breakfast there and the food was good. They also sell chocolates and coffee. The outside eating is a great atmosphere.

“Best coffee in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Antigua is known for having some of the best coffee in the world, and of the seven or so places I tried coffee there, Fernandos was definitely the best. He puts more care into his products than anybody I've met, meeting with coffee farmers, and roasting the coffee himself. The staff here is friendly and welcoming, and the pancakes are delicious as well. If you drink coffee, this is one place you don't want to miss, and is by itself reason enough to visit Antigua.

“Amazing coffee, not so good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

The coffee quality and preparation is excellent; they have many serving options. The atmosphere is very peaceful and fresh. Is a great place to seat down and relax while enjoying amazing coffee.

I also ordered breakfast: fried eggs with beans and plantain. Not good. The beans lacked flavor and I only got 1 piece of bread. The papaya juice was really good though.

The prices are really good as well.
