For those in the know, where can I go for a good cup of joe?

Threads I found suggest it is best to BYOC. True? (especially since my better half drinks decaf only).

Cafe Ole right across from the airstrip. Espresso, Chai, Mochas. The Starbucks of San Pedro. Oddly enough they have great Italian dishes at night made with local seafood and great breakfasts.

Check them out

zeecube...i couldn't help but respond to your post...don't really know too much about where you can get good coffee, as i am not a big coffee drinker...my husband passed away in march, 2001 and he was a writer....he wrote a piece called "cool beans"...i would like to share his concept of "cool beans" with the board....hope nobody minds...here we go...

cool beans.....
a concept of the total regard for yourself and the world as we speak, breathe and live. you see, cool beans has nothing to do with food or highly fortified protein packed beans with vitamins or minerals. cool beans is a statement that puts you in a place where you have the ability to co-relate with one another. A greeting, an affirmation of co-existance, an acknowledgement of the fact that you exist in someone else's mind, and/or eyes, as well as your own. As a child, i once had cool beans. i think they were pork n' beans. they were straight out of the can off the pantry shelf. cool, yes, but not anywhere near groovy. what else can i say....
this is cool beans......(written by johnathon michaels)

Kerry, what a lovely statement to begin the day, as I sit here drinking my industrial strength coffee and chicory checking for messages. I see that "cool beans" can mean many things. Thanks. cool

And RobertE, thank you too.

Cafe Ole does have excellent coffee, but these days you can get pretty good coffee at a lot of places. (Wasn't so long ago that most coffee in Belize was Nescafe or other instant, and the OJ was usually Tang!)

Now quite a few restaurants and hotels in San Pedro and around the country serve good rich Guatemalan coffee. Plus Gallon Jug puts out a decent bean (though elevations in Belize aren't quite high enough to grow the best coffee), and a couple of lodges such as Hidden Valley grow and roast their own coffee.

We took enough of our own blend of coffee with us to last about two weeks. We mix one-third regular coffee and two-thirds decaf. When we ran out, we bought Maxwell House decaf and reg to make our blend. It seemed as though the Maxwell House we bought in Belize was darker in color and also stronger, so we just played around with amounts until we got the right formula for our coffee pot.
