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.

We had coffee and pastries here, and I returned to buy a pound of their coffee (imported carefully and thoughtfully from Guatemala) to take home. Very nice people, owner is quite friendly and taught me a simple trick to help with the BZ/US currency difference.

Lots of selection of coffee and hot/cold drinks. Coffee was good and I can recommend the tamarind juice. Lovely place to sit in the morning or in the afternoon for a respite from the sun.

Best coffee in Placencia! Overheard the owner talking about where he gets the coffee in Guatemala and how he has it roasted: sounds like a real labour of love! We loved it so much we bought 3lbs to bring home. The baked goods they have...More

The three of us had hot chocolate, a frappachino, and a coffee. You feel like you are in a tree house watching the action on the Main Street below. Good coffee. Fair chocolate. Free wifi. Real local flair. Recommended

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!
