A stop at Nordico was an essential part of our morning ritual while in Tamarindo. Very nice and friendly people behind the counter, great coffee & smoothies and a great location perched above the juncture at Tamarindo Plaza. Pro tip: Be careful how you pronounce...their spinach-based Popeye smoothie. It can sound exactly similar to Papaya. Either way, both were great!More

Great little coffee/breakfast bar. Great staff and great food! I enjoyed the avocado toast and açaí bowl with an iced caramel coffee.

I had the privilege of having a quick bite after Yoga and before my Catamaran Tour while in Tamarindo. Great little spot and great place to buy some roasted coffee - they have a large selection of various coffees from various areas of the Country...to try and to take home. Located right in the heart of Tamarindo on the 2nd floor; cool location and view. You can sit inside in the air conditioning or venture onto the porch.More

The very best coffee in Tamarindo unfortunately it’s also the very worst coffee shop in Tamarindo with the worst staff and worst customer service. Do not expect them to open on time! Do not expect friendly or nice staff (especially the woman who opened on...December 28, 2023)! But do expect really good coffee!More

I loved this coffee house and visited a few times during my stay. I tried many coffee places in Tamarindo and this was by far my favorite. It’s maybe slightly higher priced than others but coffee is delicious, well made and the service is great....The even roast beans right here! Staff are welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. They also have some great GF food options. Loved the GF Veggie Burger! Delicious! There’s AC and space to sit and work if need be. Highly recommend trying this place out when you’re in town.More

Incredible experience, great service from staff Michele, great music, and especially coffee is simply amazing; more on the lighter roast than your usual coffee, which I am always looking for from a coffee. They had local geisha bags medium roasted, the owner roasted light roast...for us ✨👌More

If coffee is your jam, this is your place. My latte was great. Liked how one of the mottos on the back of their work t’s said ‘Death before Decaf’- witty & I can relate to that. Plus, Excellent people watching balcony over looking a...bustling intersection of streets & sidewalks below.More

Good coffee, the sad thing about this place is the exploitation of employees, minimum wages and miserable settlements. NORDICO IS SYNONYMOUS WITH SLAVERY IN THE XXI CENTURY. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND IT

What a great find! Since it's on the second floor of a building, may have missed it if we hadn't seen the signs. If you're serious about coffee, this is the place to go! Michael gave us a great education on different coffees of Costa...Rica, plus the various brewing methods. Also had the most amazing cappucino which was actually a piece of art :). My daughter also said her iced chai was the best ever!More

Clean, upscale coffee shop with good breakfast options, Great espresso drinks but no decaf. They were very proud of not offering decaf which I think is unfortunate. We would have gone every day if decaf was available!
