Since I am an extreme lover of coffee, I felt that it was a necessity to find a local store that specializes in coffee to buy some beans to bring back to Michigan. About a block from el mercado, I found this cafetería called “La Casita” and bought un kilo y media de café por $59 (pesos).
I can’t wait to try the café that I bought: from right here in Oaxaca!
Freshly ground coffee beans.
La Casita only sold miel (honey) and café (coffee).
The owner weighing the coffee. I asked him where it was from, and he responded, “De la región de Pluma. 3 horas de aquí” (from the Pluma region, three hours from here). I love purchasing from locals (no matter if I’m in México or the US) who know where their goods come from.
