Enjoying the World of Mexican Coffee in Centro Historico

Coffee, that beverage that awakens the senses and accompanies the most intimate and social moments of our lives, is a true treasure in global culture. From dawn to dusk, this invigorating infusion has been a faithful companion in our daily lives, a pause in the midst of the daily hustle and bustle and a catalyst for conversation and creativity.

Mexico is privileged to have one of the most appreciated coffees in the world. Mexican coffee, grown in the mountainous regions of Chiapas, Veracruz, Oaxaca and other states, is recognized for its exceptional quality and distinctive flavor.

One of the most outstanding characteristics of Mexican coffee is its cultivation at high altitudes, where climatic and geographic conditions create an ideal environment for the development of high quality coffee beans. The mountain slopes, with their fertile soil and cool temperatures, provide the perfect setting for Arabica coffee varieties, such as Typica and Bourbon, to reach their maximum flavor and aroma potential.

Mexico's diversity of microclimates also contributes to the variety of flavor profiles found in Mexican coffee. From fruity and floral notes to more earthy and chocolaty flavors, each cup of Mexican coffee offers a wonderful experience that reflects the richness of its origin.

In addition to its exceptional quality, Mexican coffee is also distinguished by its traditional and sustainable production methods. Many Mexican farmers use organic and shade-grown practices, which not only preserve the environment, but also promote biodiversity and soil health.

Coffee shops in Mexico City's Historic Center
Now that you know more about Mexican coffee, we will tell you about 3 coffee shops in the Historic Center where you can enjoy this aromatic beverage and immerse yourself in the essence of this area of the city.

Cafe de Tacuba
With more than 100 years of history, Cafe de Tacuba is an iconic place that has been an integral part of the city's cultural and artistic scene for decades. Great Mexican personalities have sat at its tables, such as Porfirio Diaz, Agustin Lara and Diego Rivera.

Today, it is more of a restaurant than a coffee shop, but it is still one of the most emblematic places in the capital to enjoy traditional Mexican breakfasts and good coffee. Also, intimate concerts are frequently held here.

Address: Calle Tacuba #28

La Parroquia de Veracruz
The incredibly famous café “La Parroquia” located in Veracruz, also has a presence in Mexico City, where its aromatic delicacies conquer everyone. Here the unmissable thing to do is to order a “lechero” (coffee with milk) accompanied by a delicious “bomba” (Mexican sweet bread with butter), and you will feel like you are sitting on the bustling boardwalk of Veracruz.

The quality of La Parroquia's coffee is largely due to its origin in the fertile lands of Huatusco, Veracruz, where the beans are cultivated with passion and care. This region, with its altitude and natural richness, provides the coffee with a distinctive flavor, a robust body, a delicious aroma and a balanced acidity.

Two locations in the Historic Center:
Republica de Brasil #5
