Four different choices of roasting that are drip brewed while you wait. Must stop on the left before you drive out of town toward Arenal. Nice hand crafts for sale and excellent food also.

We visited twice during our three day stay in the Arenal area. Enjoyed the relaxing and welcoming environment. Great for an afternoon or morning bite. The coffee special, with chocolate and cinnamon, was delicious!

Roy was very kind and showed me his custom made coffee roaster. He does three different roasts that all smell wonderful. I ordered the classic roast which was delicious! The food looks very good too.
