Cafe Las Marias San Juan La laguna | Lake Atitlan | Guatemala is one of the true Original coffee masters around Lake Atitlan Guatemala.
The village of San Juan La Laguna is also well known for Organic Certified Coffee from the La Voz Coffee Cooperative San Juan La Laguna, have you ever stopped and asked yourself what goes into your morning cup of coffee?
From tree to cup there is so much more that goes into your morning cup of java than what you realize.
Rosa and her family own and operate Cafe Las Marias in the Village of San Juan. From growing, harvesting, drying, and roasting coffee, Marcos in my mind produces an art form of the coffee drink. His small shop in San Juan is operated out of the family home.
Enjoy a unique experience of a good coffee prepared in our coffee brew bar roasted carefully in our roaster with the best view of Lake Atitlan Guatemala.
Upon entering her coffee shop you find yourself in the production and roasting operation. Up the narrow winding staircase, you are presented with an Amazing view of Lake Atitlan.
Some of the equipment Marcos uses are handmade, he has a number of very strange-looking coffee brewing devices that I would assume the true coffee aficionado would understand the purpose of brass, glass, in some cases using open flames to prepare this off-the-charts coffee brew.
Ethical Fashion Guatemala provides Tours and Introductions to Artisans of Guatemala. Marcos is a true Coffee Artisan. While we do not offer his products for sale on this website. By providing you the consumer and traveler with information about interesting and unique Guatemala Artisans we help provide income for these Artisans through tours and workshops.
Cafe Las Marias roasts coffee daily for use in her shop and also for sale. Stop by and you will not be disappointed, Cafe Las Marias is a must-stop on any visit to Lake Atitlan.
