Fat Cat has all brewing methods ( Chemex, V60, Aero Press, Etc) and excellent coffee. It is a must if you are in Antigua.

Excellent coffee house. Very simple, just delicious home grown and roasted coffee. It's right around the corner from the outstanding tour group we use every time we visit Gautemala, Columbus Luxury Travel.

Free wifi. Quieter speed. Good coffee. Right off of central park. Great place to chat with friends. Cute tables. Nice staff, although be prepared to speak some Spanish if need to say something that's not on the menu :-)

I was recommended Fat Cat and had to stop in when I saw they make iced coffee using the Japanese method. It was simply the best iced coffee (including cold brew, nitro, etc) I have had in the world. Each cup was brewed fresh on the spot. You even get to pick your beans! Friendly staff and nice space to... More

The coffee itself is great. It would by itself deserve 5 stars because it is probably the best I have tasted so far in Antigua Guatemala. However their banana bread was so bad I had to take out one star from this review. You will be much better off ordering two (smaller) lattes here than a large one from the... More

So I had been following Fat Cat Cafe for a while on Instagram and became curious to see if the coffee is as good as the pictures make it seem. IT IS! When I had the chance to make a short trip to Antigua, I made sure to stop by. I got a basic latte (I always get latte's, if... More

If you want a nice brew with people that loves coffee and know about their methods, go to Fat Cat in Antigua. Great place for a cup or two. Just sit down and relax. They do their own roasting.

I visited this place frequently during my 3 weeks in Antigua. I tried several of the coffees, all of which were great. They have a large selection of drinks, and grind freshly on site using the best Guatemalan beans. The baristas are super friendly (and were patient whistle i practised some conversational Spanish i learnt at a Spanish school here).... More

They know their coffee here for sure. There's a ton of options and we bought a bag of whole bean to take home. My hubs got the siphon and I ordered the Japanese iced coffee. So. Good. Don't miss it!

Description
We were born into the world of Shop Coffee 1 out of April 2010 in a beautiful place called San Juan Comalapa, Chimaltenango, but as destiny and God's blessing we can now find in the cradle of one of the best coffees in the world , Antigua Guatemala. Do not hesitate to take a great cup of good coffee, we use a mix of cafes Acatenango, to give balance to the coffee cup and Antigua, which gives us as a result, excellent coffee !!! Thank a lot the collaboration of Tito Drums, Gaton, Farel, Friends and Family. "God Bless Fat Cat Coffee House" ..... Alguan reference as it started this dream
