Finally great iced coffee! Didn’t have the food though. Person working was very friendly. Saw the owners but didn’t get acknowledged.

This coffee house offers not only very good coffee but locally made pastries. Get there early and chat with the locals, who are there each morning around 6:30-7:00. Get cought up on what's going on in town. It's become a staple for me

Above Ground Coffee is a good place to start the morning. Coffee is great, as are specialty drinks. And you watch Placencia downtown come to life.

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!
