3.6 - 6.9 Good
7.0 - 8. 4 Excellent
8.5 - 10 Superior
9.5 Casa Palopó
We learned that this Restaurant serves Mike's coffee
from Cross Roads Cafe
Jeff grabbed a cup of coffee just before he and Kathy did zip-lining in Panajachel. I'm wondering if it was to calm his nerves? But the coffee wasn't as good as specialty café here in Guatemala.
We were told to try Fernando's Kaffee in Antigua. The Patio atmosphere was nice.
Then we tried
Jeff was a little hesitant to stop at McDonald's in Antigua and have a cup of coffee at the very quaint McCafé near the plaza!
Jeff never did try Starbucks coffee here in Guatemala.
Jeff and Kathy met our friend Caroline and her husband who have a coffee business right near the Guatemala City airport. Jeff purchased some bags of Godoy's , so he will have to rank it himself. It was fun to watch them roasting the coffee and smell it too.
9.8 & Cafe
Just as Jeff and Kathy were leaving, we had him try the coffee shop upstairs at the Guatemala City Airport, & Café.
6.9 Pilandros Café
Glenn served Jeff coffee from Jope coffee (medium and dark roast) (7.9) and Cafe Altura (8) here at our house. His least favorite was Pilandros cafe which is a coffee shop and a candle making location too. We understand that scents from candles just don't mix with coffee.
Jeff's first cup of coffee here in Guatemala was at El Cafetalito. He was impressed even though he was drinking out of a "to go" cup.
