Most coffee lovers skip the machine stuff in the buffets and find the 24 hour bars where that honking-big espresso machines runs 24/7 pumping out sweet elixir. Or just plain Cafe American.
I'd be surprised if StarfishCP didn't have one. The bar across the street has one.
Someone else will know if they use Serrano, my favourite. Yum!
Have a great trip. We've been looking at that resort ever since wandering through it a couple of years ago before it changed to Adult Only.
Yes Cuba he great coffee if you get it from the bars as long it does not come from the buffet you will get a nice coffee .
Buffet I don,t know what they serve but that is the worst coffee I ever had Yukkkk just awful ..
I always take my coffee at the bar at resorts great espresso coffee like Italy, never from the big machines at the buffet area its bad.
Been there many times , the coffee at the buffet and ala cartes is poor . There is coffee at the 24 hour bar which is better but just so so. There is a really nice little coffee bar a couple of blocks down 1st Ave. with really good coffee where we go every morning . I'm not a coffee drinker but my wife complained about coffee at the Cuatro Palmas.
Is there an espresso machine at the 24hr bar, Berryp? Does your wife drink espresso?
Yes there is an espresso machine at the 24 hour bar just off the main lobby .
I agree with everyone. The buffet coffee, tasted like nothing. The bar coffee was much better, but still could have been a bit stronger tasting.
I was at SCP 2 years ago...it was better if you told them to make it "strong"!Edited: 20 November 2018, 07:04
At most resort bars the bartenders get a little slack during busy times and don't pack the cup with enough grounds and don't tamp it down properly.....the result is a weak espresso.
HC Cuba has good espresso but as good as you get in Italy.
Italy is another World when it comes to Espresso Coffee anyway for places I had my coffee in Italy best i ever had along with a nice glass of Grapa ...
