“An education in coffee”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

The coffee is good, the ambiance casual -- but the owner is a gem. Catch him and he'll tell you how his family settled in the highlands near Boquete, how the coffee business has changed up to today's "third wave" of artisanal networks, how each stage of coffee processing works and how it can be varied for different taste effects, and how his colleagues in Panama chose to cultivate geisha varieties and made them the highest-price coffee in the world. A great experience, highly recommended!

“Great coffee house with unique coffee”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Great service, snack options, and coffee in a cosy atmosphere. Couldn't resist trying the Geisha coffee (a rate and extremely expensive coffee) and found it deliciously unique--though a little too expensive to drink on a regular basis. Fortunately, the iced coffee we also bought was also good. And the latte ine member of our group got was done with an animal face that was a work of art.

Loved my morning cup of geisha coffee at $6.50 a cup. Pleasant atmosphere, good service. I'm looking forward to trying some of their tasty looking pastries.

“greatest coffee”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I have been to a lot of coffee shops, never thought i found my self in a place where they serve such an AMAZING COFFEE!! if you go to Panama, you MUST go to this coffee shop in Casco Viejo. Not only the coffee is great but the people are very friendly and they have a very good variety of desserts! They also serve sandwiches and other things you can lunch on.

“good coffee”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

this place is a small coffee house located in casco viejo.. the old town. They have a good selection of coffee, good variety of snacks and pastries. Atmosphere is cozy and service is attentive! You can buy coffee as a souvenir, they have Wifi and is a very Cozy cafe!
is nice to head here for a quick cup but the food options are quite light, some cookies, panamian pastries, and doughnuts.
