Description: 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!

Starbucks who???
Kevin has blended what seems to be one of the best coffees you can find in Belize or anywhere else for that matter. Try the cappuccinos! I've been traveling to Placencia for years and have finally found another great reason to head to the village in the middle of the afternoon... Tutti Frutti and Above Ground Coffee both within 25 yards of each other.
Stop and say Hi to Kevin and buy a bag of his coffee to take back home with you!

What can I say, need a great espresso with coffee cake or banana bread? This is your place. They also sell Guatemalan coffee that is amazing! We took 6 pounds home! In the center of town and with free WiFi it's a great place to take a rest, post some photo's and re-energize for the day.

We visited here when we stayed in Placencia in December 2011. The coffee was very good. We enjoyed the small treehouse atmosphere and the Christmas decorations on the palm trees and tropical plants, very fun. For Belize this was a coffee treat. Recommended.

Keith and Lorraine are great baristas and Keith is bringing in direct trade small farm grown beans from Guatemala. If you like good coffee, you will love this spot. Great birdwatching off the back porch too, and you might see an iguana wrestle with a squirrel if you are really lucky!

After reading reviews on here I was expecting more than what I actually saw. The coffee was good enough but it wasn't great. The service also could have been better. I also would have liked to see more options with sugar or honey, and that sort of thing. And it was quite small. It would be nice if they built more seats down below too. The price was okay.
