OLD

By: Rebecca Lane

Mexico is known for their wonderful coffee, which is grown in several different regions throughout the nation. As in other coffee producing countries, here coffee can be mild or robust, full bodied or mellow, and highly aromatic. It all depends on the beans used and the roasting time.

Most of us, even if we don�t drink much coffee, like the smell of freshly ground beans. If you�re a regular coffee drinker, you�ll agree that there is nothing like a cup first thing in the morning, especially with the paper.

In Mexico, coffee is a tradition. A cup of �caf� con leche� (coffee with milk) is just as popular in the morning as it is in the evening. And it�s common for people to agree to meet for a �cafecito� at any time of the day just to chat while they sip on their favorite brew. Strangely, Nescafe, or instant coffee, is widely used throughout the Yucatan. This is baffling considering the quality of beans produced and exported in near by areas such as Chipas, Oaxaca, Veracruz. Actually, unless you hit an actual coffee house, or caf� you will probably be getting just that in your cup, Nescafe. There are places on Isla Mujeres where you can get an excellent cup of coffee. Aluxes Coffee House, for example is the best place for an espresso, cappuccino, mocha, etc.. There�s also Cafecito and Caribbean Caf� both host a nice cup of joe, among others. Be aware, though, Starbucks has not yet hit Latin America, so there exists no such thing as the following; skinny this or that, soy milk, double breve vanilla mochachocalattahahaha etcetera. You may as well be speaking Swahili. In Mexico, coffee is coffee, and that�s the way we like it.
