My first thought, walking into this well-furnished (and well-air conditioned!) coffee shop, was that I had been transported in the blink of an eye from Managua to Seattle. For connoisseurs of the American coffee shop experience, this place will make you feel right at home....More

Great place to taste high-quality Nicaraguan coffee in diverse presentations, hot or cold (a need considering Managua's climate). El Coche also offers a diversity of delicious cakes, paninis and the like as coffee companions for when thirst goes beyond (to hunger!). Prices are quite reasonable;...More

I have visited this coffee shop 3 or 4 times already and they never fail to disappoint. Their iced latte is milk with ice with the smallest hint of coffee flavor. I once orders an iced coffee (which they did not have in the menu...More

Best iced latte I've had in Nicaragua . I enjoy visiting this cafe whenever I have a chance. I would also recommend the different coffees and smoothies.

In Managua it is understood that sometimes you pay more for atmosphere, well that is not the case with either the Bolonia and Los Robles locations for 'El Coche Cafe', which I have been to a variety of times for both coffee and food. The...More

We were one of the original international style coffee stores in Managua. The furnishings are a little dated but the coffee is export quality, something that is unique to our store. Most of the coffee sold in Nicaragua as gourmet is coffee that they cannot sell on the international market. Our employees have an average length of service exceeding 2.5 years with our most experienced barista being with us over 10 years. No other coffee store in Nicaragua can claim such employee loyalty and longevity.
