The three of us had hot chocolate, a frappachino, and a coffee. You feel like you are in a tree house watching the action on the Main Street below. Good coffee. Fair chocolate. Free wifi. Real local flair. Recommended

I started my mornings here during my stay. I love the coffee (of course!), the sweet treats were delicious and the friendly atmosphere was an added bonus. I even purchased their coffee beans to bring home!

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!
