Antigua Coffee House's brewers take their chosen potion seriously. They use Chemex coffeemakers to brew a quality cup of Joe. They invent unexpected flavor combinations. A local priest even blessed their favorite concoction, the Mayan mocha. To be fair, the Mayan mocha is something special: Antigua's coffeemakers blend raw cacao with cinnamon, stir in raw-cane sugar sourced from Mexico, and add some anise to espresso they say they've roasted according to a secret mathematical formula.
Coffee isn't the only thing at Antiqua Coffee House. While taste buds soak up expertly brewed blends, eyes savor local artwork. The café is so committed to its community's art that it helped organize events like Artwalk: Through the Tunnel. Artwalk was the brainchild of owner Yancey Quinones, who temporarily converted the city's underground tunnels into a welcoming, vibrant exhibition.
