Shel Horowitz's comment tre our cacao honey bars from 2006 before all the bad sugar chocolate ripoffs arrived:
Antigua, Guatemala: Colonial Elegance and Lots to Do
But the chocolate shop I preferred was Tostaduria Antigua, Sixth Street West at Seventh Avenue South, an amazing little coffee bean shop that also sold very dark, rough artisenal chocolates as well as whole cacao beans. Owned and operated by an intense Norteamericano from Texas, this shop offered something very close to a pure chocolate experience. It's not for everyone, but I was utterly thrilled..........

tripadvisor post re Tostaduria Antigua coffee.We were te first to roast in Antigua beginning in 1993.
We are at home now and trying all of the different coffees we bought in Guatemala. Each morning my wife prepares it , and I guess where it was bought and which type it is. Fernando`s? Mike`s from Crossroads? All have been good, but today especially so! From Tostasduria!!!! Dark roast. So glad we found you at your new location!!
I just went to the old location on 7 Avenida. Tostaduria Antigua is not there anymore. It's a coffee shop, but new owners and the place was done over. Not even close to the same place. I searched for 2 days and finally found Tony in a small shop at 2D Avenida #34 by Santa Clara. The address is 2nd...
Was on a different corner great coffee smoke scent. Still get excited when I walk down the cobbled streets and smell that bean smell. If your here and a coffee person welcome to meca.seventeen years hasn't change the experience.
I bought the medium roasted coffee beans to bring home and now I'm wishing I'd bought a lot more. If you enjoy coffee with caramel and chocolate tones, you will definitely enjoy this. can't wait to go back again to get some more!
