Wonderful coffee for this Seattle traveler. Often difficult to find outside of Washington State. Also great home made carrot cake. Fresh daily! Owned and run by Americans. Roast their own beans. Even while you wait if you've got the time.

This is one of the most popular coffee shops in Panajachel especially with the ex-pat population. Run by Michael, he finds, buys, roasts, grinds, and serves the best beans in Guatemala! And then washes the dishes and loves every minute of it. We hope to meet you soon over a cup of coffee and hear your story!
