    We love your products! We order pan mixto regularly–we all enjoy it so much. And the hot chocolate, and the almond bread you had at Christmas time. All so yummy!!

      I just want to say how impressed I was with my order. The packaging was unique and creative. I ordered a handbag for Christmas and It’s true, pictures don’t do justice to the product. The handbag is beautiful and well made. About 2 weeks ago I ordered one of the Bundt Cakes, It was delicious. It comes with a frosting on the side which I did not use, I think the cake is better without it. I’m not from Guatemala but I’ve been there twice and I just loved it. The products from these website are really from Guatemala and of high quality.

        I’m so happy I found this website. I am an adoptive parent, my daughter is from Guatemala. This website is a great resource for me. For my daughter’s birthday I got a Torta instead of a cake. We all loved it.
        As a request – childrens clothes.

          I just received my package of of beautiful handmade pillow cases and a table runner which has handmade detailed stitching depicting Mayan Chiefs and heiroglyphics. You can see the hundreds of hours it took to make this. The workmanship is spectacular and the colors amazing. I love it. Everything came speedy fast and beautifully wrapped!

          Thank you!

            I have ordered products from this store in the past. I’ve always been very pleased with their products. However, this is the first time I order something edible. I needed a thank you gift for my office staff, so I called Antiguafc and spoke with Amanda. She was very kind and helpful. I told her exactly what I was looking for. Amanda suggested the assortment of Cookies and a Bundt Cake. My staff was pleasantly surprised when the order arrived. The packaging was creative, the cookies were delicious and the cake was gone in 5 minutes. Thank you.

                I ordered one of the Barbies with traditional dress for my daughter’s homecoming day-she was adopted from Guatemala 5 years ago. It is absolutely beautiful, with clothing that is wonderfully handmade and jewelry that is actually sewn on so that it won’t be lost. It is more of a treasure to display than a plaything, but I am so excited to give it to her when we celebrate in May. It arrived in under a week and was beautifully packaged as well! I ordered another one for my godchild as well and can’t wait to see it too!

                  The Coffee is really exquisite. I was in Antigua last year and I know the coffee grown there is excellent.

                      Wow! The whole kindergarten class LOVED the Pan Mixtos. The only child who didn’t eat a whole big piece was a girl with a wheat allergy poor thing. You did a superb job getting it to us quickly and safely and it tasted lovely and fresh when we opened your air-tight packaging. It really made our Guatemala event a success. Thanks so much!

                          Thank you for your help. The coffee is really good and the almond bread is full of flavor, by far the best almond bread I’ve tried.

                            Your almond bread, coffee, hot chocolate, and hilachas mix are my favorites so far but we haven’t tried everything yet

                                Your beautiful 15″ Mayan dolls arrived today. I was so impressed with the workmanship and
                                they will make a wonderful additional to my collection. I want to thank you so much for your

                                  Our Christmas was full of Colors and Flavors of Guatemala. We ordered the Pan Mixto, Chocolate, Coffee and 2 Masks. We received our products on time. When we opened the box the smell of the coffee and chocolate was an extra nice treat. The packaging of the masks definitely reflected Guatemala all around. I will be buying more!!

                                    Thank you for finding those beautiful and unique dolls from Guatemala, your efforts to obtain these
                                    are sincerely appreciated. I know how difficult it was to locate them. Handmade items are
                                    treasures and they are getting harder and harder to find. I check your website often, as there are
                                    more items I wish to purchase from you.
                                    Please continue to bring these FANTASTIC ITEMS TO US FROM GUATEMALA.

                                        I wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with my purchase of the woven wall hanging from Antigua, Guatemala., the village scene.. The workmanship iis outstanding , and the colors are
                                        so vivid. This art work is a real conversation piece and is the focal point in my
                                        living room.

                                        Thank You.

The packaging was awesome and wrapped incredibly well. Also thank you for the coffee! A mi me encanta GUatemala y he viajado alli muchas veces! I can’t wait to place my next order with you!

                                            I ordered a necklace and 2 belts, 4 days ago and I got them yesterday. I wore the necklace to work today and I got so many compliments. The colors of the necklace I got are beautiful, it’s different, and its very comfortable to wear. I wish I could post pictures. The belts are good quality and also very beautiful. I got a good deal because I used a 10% off coupon code.
                                            I’ve order the Pan Mixto and the Almond Bread in the past, this is my first time ordering items that are not edible and I don’t regret it at all.

                                              The coffee tastes wonderful and the hand-embroidered wall hanging is spectacular! It looks so great on my wall and you can really tell that it took someone a long time to create such a lovely piece. I think I want another one soon. Thank you for the excellent communication and super fast shipping. I will definitely be back!! I really want to try the quesadilla cake!!

                                                I would like to comment that my latest order of pan mixto was terrible. The bread had an awful texture and flavor. The packaging was much diferent than the first time I ordered the same type of bread, at which time, the bread was delicious.

                                                I’m not sure what happened but it seemed like the quality of the product really went down. Needless to say, I was very dissapointed to receive and have paid for something that was not enjoyable to eat.

                                                  Dear Sara,
                                                  I’m sorry you are not happy with your order. The bread should be the same as the first time. We use the same recipe all the time for our regular orders. Perhaps inadvertently we made a mistake with your order since we also have different recipes for special requests due to allergies or problems with diabetes. I will find out what happened to your order and I will contact you as soon I have an answer.
                                                  Thanks for your patience and I apologize for this inconvenience.

                                                    On May 22nd. I had posted a comment regarding my experience with an order of pan mixto that I had not liked. A couple of days later I received an e-mail from Amanda stating that she would be reviewing the issue; subsequently, I received a phone call from Amanda informing me that she had found out what the mistake had been and why the bread was not the same.

                                                    She volunteered to send me an order of the same bread to compensate for the previous one, and this time the bread was very good….. same texture and flavor as my first order.

                                                    Amanda, thank you for taking the time to personally contact me to correct this issue, and for making sure that your customers are satisfied and happy with your products.

I’ve special ordered some items that I been trying to get for some time now. The items I received were above my expectations. Thank you.

                                                            I was so thrilled to find this site. My daughter was adopted from Guatelama when she was 9 months old and she just turned 5. She knows she is adopted and asked about her mom and 4 siblings that she has never met. I ordered her a doll of her mom and 1 boy and 3 sisters and one for herself, so she could fit it also:) She is so loving and I want her to have Guatemala as a huge part of her life. I am actually ordering her a barbie so I can give it to her on her Gatcha Day. I also ordered your coffee! The one thing that I enjoyed so much their was your coffee. Thanks so much. This has just made my evening!

                                                              A friend of mine told me about AntiguaFC. after browsing their products I decided to order some sweet breads. I have a panaderia Guatemalteca by my house but I wanted to see if there was any difference. I was able to taste the difference immediately, AntiguaFC’s bread is the best. I am from Guatemala so I know.

                                                              1. Tina from St Louis says:

                                                                I was so happy to have found your site. I adopted my daughter from Guatemala back in 2006. I ordered her one each of the dolls to represent her family back in Guatemala and she has them on her bed at all times. I have also ordered her purses and barbie dolls to give her for her “gotcha day”. She cherishes these items. Thank you Guatemala for coming all the way to my precious baby girl and to St Louis. I will be a customer for years! P.S. Really enjoyed the coffee also!!

                                                                1. Claudia says:

                                                                  1. Hector says:

My order arrived this afternoon -it only took two days,- and I was very pleased with it. The flavor of the bread and the champurradas was exactly like I remembered from back home. Next time, I will complete the experience and order the coffee, too.
