“So-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

As a former coffee shop manager myself I found the employees not very friendly. One day I had a hot latte, it seemed watery and gritty tasting. Another day I had a blend drink, it quickly separated and also tasted gritty. They should maybe reformulate their recipes. Keep some espresso cold for cold drinks and have their espresso machine calibrated.
We did enjoy sitting on the porch.

This place serves the best coffee in Key West. Period. Cosy atmosphere, super nice staff. Pastries also smelled good, though I haven't tried them.

“Great coffee shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

I love going to coffee plantation and enjoying a delicious iced coffee while sitting on the front porch and people watch. A great stop to break up a hectic day. Very friendly owner and staff. Great space to work as they have wifi.

“Delicious vegan soy lattes in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

If you visit Key West, Florida, do not miss out on the most delicious coffee in town. We tried the vegan soy mocha which was creamy and smooth. We also tried the almond joy with soy which tasted exactly like an almond joy bar (coconut, almond, and chocolate.) The Barista said they were made with Kana espresso and Monin syrups. The coffee shop has comfortable seating inside and outside on the porch.
