Really great espresso with nice tones of chocolate. Very smooth with good crema. Barista knows what she is doing. They roast in house.

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!

Stopped in this morning for a cup of coffee on our way to breakfast, and my partner and I enjoyed an Americano and a cappuccino. My cappuccino was easily one of the best cups of coffee I've had in my life. Extremely nice folks running an awesome business! If you love or even just like coffee, this is a must-do.

Delicious organic coffee, friendly staff, fun atmosphere. If you go to Pana, you have to go to Cafe Loco.

If you need your caffiene fix and our in downtown panajachel, you cannot go wrong with Cafe Loco. Its a small place but is very inviting. I ordered a latte and my friend ordered a tea. Both were great! The baristas are very helpful if you are not sure what to get.

I decided to go here based on the abundance of positive reviews on TripAdvisor. I didn't even drink my coffee, it was so bad. We were asked if we wanted our coffee strong or normal so we said normal to be on the safe side. I guess we should have said strong because it tasted like a cup of soy... More

Went here to check out what all the fuss was about, I had a double expresso iced soy milk latte. Best one ever, the coffee flavour was out of this world. They have a big coffee menu and I go back every day I'm Pana!

Located on Santander street, very small coffee, but the best coffee in town, great expresso, latte, milk or soy milk. The coffee is roasted on site and you can buy some at a good price. The owners are very friendly.
