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!

Great, little coffee shop in downtown Placencia. Coffee is good and they are committed to supporting small family growers in an area in Guatemala, Lake Atitlan. It feels like a throwback in time when you are in Placencia, and especially at Above Grounds. Enjoy a pastry or two and a good cuppa

I do love this spot, but it could offer a lot more.
I love sitting on the deck overlooking the street...feels like you are in a tree house :D

COFFEE/FOOD
The coffee was a bit disappointing but still good
Food is bagels and frozen fruit popsicles
No blended drinks here
Prices are high

We happened upon this coffee shop while walking around Placencia and were so thrilled! It was getting quite warm out, I was needing an iced coffee - and there it was! There are many other refreshing drinks available, had a nice view from the second floor deck and cheerful service. A good find!!

We loved coming here to sit on the patio in the shade with a beeeze blowing through to get out of the sun and enjoy an iced coffee. The fresh baked goods every day are delicious!!

What a wonderful find. We heard the bread and butter is a must. We had iced coffee and ice tea before our boat trip on Ocean Motion.
