Their beans are grown just over the border in Guatemala by a man named Leonzo Vasquez. Their drip coffee is amazing! It's smooth and has a nice sweet acidic taste and a citrus aroma.

This place opens at 7am and is a great place to start the day. The mochas are very good and the doughnuts made by the neighbor lady are great. A great place to start the day.

Absolutely the best coffee in Placencia, crafted and served by a friendly crew of locals. Great seating above the bustle of the street below. Perfect.

Delicious sustainably farmed coffee served in a great atmosphere with great music. Outstanding baked goods available as well, my guess is that they are by John the Bakerman.

Finally great iced coffee! Didn’t have the food though. Person working was very friendly. Saw the owners but didn’t get acknowledged.

This coffee house offers not only very good coffee but locally made pastries. Get there early and chat with the locals, who are there each morning around 6:30-7:00. Get cought up on what's going on in town. It's become a staple for me

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!
