A very cute cafe where you can hang out and drink a decent coffee, or just grab quick breakfast before heading out for the day.

This place opens at 7am and is a great place to start the day. The mochas are very good and the doughnuts made by the neighbor lady are great. A great place to start the day.

Above Grounds Coffee has established a direct connection with small independent farmers in 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!
