This place is great, they serve a wide varry of different coffees from espresso to chemex. We love the vibe and the environment they have created here, its like being in new york city. One of the top coffees weve had in latin america.

I went here and got an iced Blue Caramel, which was their caramel macchiato. It was very good! It costs a few quetzales more than other great places in Pana, but it's a nice place to have a cup of coffee!

A lot of choices of coffee (espresso cap latte cold brew iced coffee dripped aero etc). Good barista. Two types of roast available (medium or medium-dark). They can do latte art if you are into that. They roast the grains in the shop. Young Koreans running it. Very welcoming.

I visit this place regularly once or twice a month, each time I go to Panajachel. It is always nice to be there and get coffee from passionate people that know and master different techniques to make coffee. The place is simple and cozy, the staff is friendly and not complicated at all. Great place!
