The coffee was top notch, and the hot chocolate was exceptional. Tiny place with limited seating, and very limited menu.

This was the best coffee we found in Costa Rica - proper strong espresso where you could feel the caffeine hit :) Lovely clean shop and great service.

I got a cappuccino here (twice) and both times, they were delicious! Had a great time hanging with friends while it stormed outside. The people who work here are very friendly as well!

We stopped in one day for our morning coffee and the two girls running the cafe were not only very noice, helpful and happy but they made us one of the best coffees we have had in all of Costa Rico. We had a cappuccino...More

This place was a real find. The coffee was so nice we brought some beans to take home. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

What a great place. I loved how much they also loved their coffee! We bought lots of beans to take home. Other coffee will never compare!

We tried the hot chocolate and were astonished and happy. Later talked with the guys and turns out they melt real chocolate in it and this makes a lot of the difference. Worth having on a cold evening.

We are dedicated to specialty coffee, plus some pastries. You will find a great selection from award winning micro mills from different locations in Costa Rica. We roast once a week so you get freshly roasted beans (or ground). We package in compostable earth friendly bags, with proper protection and degassing valve to keep your coffee fresh without hurting nature.
