“Best specialty coffee in San Jose!”

I hardly venture to this side of town cuz I'm mainly in the west side but what a great surprise this coffee shop turned out to be.

I'm a cappuccino junkie and seriously this was the best I've had in Costa Rica. My brother likes black coffee and he ordered the pour-over option which was prepared right in front of us and absolutely loved it too. The baristas were super friendly and nice. We also enjoyed great food options as sandwiches and artisan pastry. Really cool music too.

Will definitely be going back at least once a month since we don't have anything like this on the other side of San José. How about one in Escazú, guys? :')

I decided to venture out in my new neighborhood and work/people watch from a cafe today... there were a few to choose from but this one drew me in. The outside courtyard is lush and inviting, the interior decor is fresh and modern and while I don’t quite know the inspiration behind the name Cabra Nagra (black goat) the coffee was strong and sweet. I recommend the iced Carmel coffee macchiato. It’s a nice place to work (they have good WiFi signal) the music is a jazz mixture of contemporary artist and old school (plus it’s not blasting so loud that you can’t think or work) and the 2 person staff is laid back yet helpful. A total great chill choice on a rainy Wednesday afternoon.

I was looking for a different cafeteria and suddenly I saw this amazingly cozy and sophisticated coffee shop.
The street in front is a little dark but the location is close to many other good places.
