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!

I don't drink coffee but my wife does and she loves Keith's coffee - placing it above her old favourite, Starbucks. Nice atmosphere, interesting people and great service along with the supberb coffee make this place a must.

I read about this coffee house before I left home and knew I wanted to visit. The prices are American prices but well worth it. The owner gets fresh coffee from Guatemala and blends it with different types of coffee beans to make a really great flavor. I was on a tech break so can't attest to the internet access, but this place is really fun to hang out and visit with locals, cruisers, and tourists alike. We went there 2 times and stayed for probably 2 hours each time. Definitely worth a go!

But really, it is so much fun to walk up and have coffee in this tree house and check your email. They make a pretty good cup of coffee. Don't expect extra sweet American type mocha, they are just perfect

A unique little place that could use more seating. The expresso used is very good and strong and the baking is homemade fresh each day. A computer is available for customers to use.

this place is in town, and tucked away. the coffee in central america is served strong and hot and we went there every morning. they also serve bagels, breads, fruit juices, etc, and they have wifi, so you can sit on their porch outside, and start your day in peace!
