“Roasted in Antigua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

My wife and I found this little place on our recent trip to Guatemala. If you are a coffee aficionado, and know good coffee when you see it, smell it and taste it. Then please, take the time to search this place out.
Fortunately, for us, our rented apartment was just down the street.
Its run by two brothers, with infectious smiles, very cool hats and an obvious passion for Guatemalan coffee. Their knowledge and love for the bean shines through as they take time and care to craft each cup.
In addition the their barista concoctions, freshly roasted and ground to order coffee is also available. Having a coffee maker at the apartment made this a viable option, which I exercised twice, getting a freshly ground 1/2 lb. on separate occasions from two separate roasts', Both were equally amazing.
My only regret is not making the time to grab some more to bring home before retuning to home to Florida.

Cheers gatos gordo

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Two brothers running this are nice friendly guys making great coffees. Now going under a different name but at same address. (They've joined forces with a deli so now you can get food there too...we had breakfast it was pretty good)

“Fab coffee - funky place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

It was refreshing to have great coffee in this sweet small cafe in Antigua after having appalling coffee in California. We made this a daily ritual. Also upstairs there's a delicateness with cheese etc. The brother baristas are lovely and were on first name basis by day two.

“Simply the best..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

I have tried virtually every coffee house in Antigua. Without question, Fat Cat is the best. They pay attention to every cup of coffee, and their customers. The coffee is consistent, cup after cup.
Not only is it the best coffee, but it's also one of the least expensive option in Antigua.
