Café Museo

Cafe in Huehuetenango

This 'museum' serves some of Huehue's best coffee, and that's saying something. More than just a place to get a well-prepared cup, it also provides some background on this bewitching bean that has so influenced Guatemala's history. The various salons and delightful patio buzz with java hounds from early morning till late evening (for which there's a good wine list)

Besides examining antique coffee-processing paraphernalia and some diagrams demonstrating coffee production techniques, you can roast your own beans for purchase. Enquire about local coffee plantation tours between January and April.
