Sunday & Café Du Calcetín*
"Albur" is a way of making fun of people trying not make them feel uncomfortable. People who practice this art in Mexico are able to turn upside down words, rhymes and sentences to end in a funny comment. If you have the time to stop by Monterrey, Mexico try to reach Café du Calcetín* any Sunday at the Barrio Antiguo. There you'll be more than glad to meet Roberto Espejo -albur master, mathematician, great reader, professional photographer and homemade barista- who runs this small coffee business in the zone. He'll be more than glad to serve you a fresh coffee, cold lemonade with mint or an exquisite bread filled with homemade almond hummus and a choice of marmalade. *Calcetin=Sock > the grounded coffee is poured into the sock-like clothe, then a hot stream of water extracts all the flavor ending up in your cup.
