Kaffee-tal serves excellent espresso-based drinks and pastries, some of which are German-inspired. The quality of their coffee is widely praised not only by visiting coffee enthusiasts, but also by vacationing professional baristas. This cosy cafe is a peaceful oasis in the (slight) craziness of Liberia. The owners are amazingly friendly and speak good English.
The Guanacaste region has excellent coffee. The dramatic mountainous geography gives local coffee beans a smooth body with light acidity and defined bitter and salty notes. Third wave coffee shops have only now started popping up in Liberia, but that doesn't mean that coffee connoisseurs will be left wanting. Plenty of cafes serve cups of delicious liquid gold prepared the traditional way. Many cafes also serve light meals.
