I stayed close to this little gem of a coffee shop. The owner was amazing, great service and knows his coffee. Roasts the beans onsite that are grown from his own family plantation in Veracruz. Probably some of the best coffee I have ever had.

Real Mexican coffee. Grown above the clouds on Veracruz volcanoes soil. Roasted by Mario the real Mexican cowboy in his huge machine right in the cafe.

This place is our favourite find in Playa. Location one block away from 5th ave keeps it quiet but close-by, and the coffee is incredibly good. Everything else in town seems to be chain-style cafes so this really place really hits the spot!

I stumbled upon this shop and am in love. The owner, Mario, owns his own plantation in Veracruz and roasts and grinds his own beans - there's no fresher coffee to be found. He definitely knows his stuff and enjoys answering questions and talking with...More

A cozy Coffee Boutique where you will find the top quality fresh organic coffee by the pound and by the cup. Our coffee is roasted on site every other day for guaranteed freshness. We serve a wide variety of delicious coffee cocktails including the famous Cafe de Olla which is the traditional Mexican coffee recipe as well as pastries and sandwiches for our customers to enjoy. All of our coffee comes from our plantations in Veracruz and grown organically on rich volcanic soils. When you are buying coffee with us you can be sure it will be organic, pesticides free, as fresh as it can be. Health benefits of our fresh coffee are numerous - it improves your cardiovascular system, improves mental functions, helps with Alzheimer and diabetes and etc. Our coffee often called "alive" and completely different from what you may experience with regular store bought coffee. We export our coffee in small and large amounts all over the world.
