Great coffee with very friendly people, haven't had a bagel yet but have heard they are great. Fun to sit on the deck and watch the day begin.

Been here every morning. Love the cappuccino and the bagels with cream cheese. These tastes feel like I'm in the mainland, a must for anyone seeking a good cup of morning Joe

The 4 days I spent in Placencia where mainly rain filled, so this coffee shop was a haven for me. The have good quality, central American coffee with all the choices you should need. The environment is warm and welcoming and the shop is built around a tree giving it a cool tree-house feel.

Description
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!
