I love coffee. I buy it anytime I am near the growers. I love drinking coffee. In Guatemala Coffee is everywhere but I was surprised at this little place. The coffee is prepared the same way as everywhere else and yet the coffee is so dark, rich, robust...for a coffee lover this place is not to be missed.

This is a true coffee shop. Pour over and espresso only. You know you're in for a treat when the first thing you see is a roaster...

The owner is very friendly, we wish we could have hung out for longer.

Cappuccino was great, as was the Americano. I wish we could have gone back for an espresso... Next time we're in Antigua, we'll be back...

Don't miss this coffee shop!!

Such a pleasant surprise when I felt a pull to walk down 7th Avienda Norte... there I found this little coffee shop that literally drew me inside.

Super coffee!
Great views, on a street that has much to see... two blocks from the local and tourist market, too.

A thoughtfully arranged cafe, with a really peaceful feeling.
One could read or write or just sit contemplatively in this warm and friendly environment.

Kudos to the owners and operators of this cafe as they promote sustainable and eco-tourism.
They have coffee tours and visits to volcanoes, farms, etc...

Nice place to grab a cup of coffee. It was a little on the expensive side but you are able to choose from local coffee beans that are freshly ground. The workers there seemed to enjoy their jobs and gave great service.
