Coffee culture is changing in Guatemala with Café Barista and El Cafetalito in vanguard

Friday, March 2, 2012

North Americans and Europeans have enjoyed coffee from Ethiopia, Costa Rica and Vietnam, among others, in their local coffee shops for decades.

So it’s peculiar to walk into businesses in a coffee-producing country like Guatemala and get sugary instant coffee.

But in recent years, local cafés like Café Barista and El Cafetalito, are giving many Guatemalans a chance to drink their own world-famous coffee. And domestic coffee consumption in Guatemala has doubled in the last five years.
