Hideaway, yes - but don't expect to hide out here: the place is popular with visitors studying Spanish. Great coffee, by the cup or by the pound. My son told Mike, the owner, "I don't like coffee at home, but the Guatemalan coffee is delicious!"...More

The service and coffee here was phenomenal. The man serving coffee was very friendly and had some fantastic stories. The coffee was so good we decided to take some coffee beans home with us. Definitely will be returning in the future.

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!
