What a great place. I loved how much they also loved their coffee! We bought lots of beans to take home. Other coffee will never compare!

We are dedicated to specialty coffee, plus some pastries. You will find a great selection from award winning micro mills from different locations in Costa Rica. We roast once a week so you get freshly roasted beans (or ground). We package in compostable earth friendly bags, with proper protection and degassing valve to keep your coffee fresh without hurting nature.
