“It's like a corner of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

Saw the signs the night before. Went back in the morning. Thought I had opened the wrong door and stepped into someone's home. WOW! This place is AMAZING. The MOST cozy coffee shop I have EVER been to.

Of course, the obvious question "may we see the menu" to which I received "we have eggs, can make pancakes, have bread, pastries, coffee, and tea". What more can you ask for? So, sat down at the little coffee table by the window and were served AWESOME eggs, bread, and AMAZING coffee.

That's when the good part started. Kicked off a conversation. Isabel is a 3rd generation coffee grower, they grown their own coffee, roast it, sell it, brew it. And it is REALLY good. I like coffee and cream in my coffee and I had a "cortadito" (milk) but no sugar. Coffee is so good it would be a sin to add sugar to it.

I'd go back over and over again.

“Must get the frappe!”

Loved her frappe! Loved her coffee so much that my friend and I bought some coffee to support her. She grows her own beans and runs the shop, great woman and great coffee!!

“Best Espresso Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

If you like a bold cup of coffee without the bitterness, do stop in at Hacienda Isabel.

As others have written, it's a beautiful haven! The owners are rightly proud of their single source, Puerto Rican Arabica beans from their 100 acre plantation. I went back twice.

There's a more famous single-source coffee bar in town, but I found their espresso bitter. So, if you like smooth, bold coffee, do visit Hacienda Isabel.
