Craft Coffee from Mexico in CoyoacanIn a country that produces as much coffee as Mexico, you might expect more cafés to feature domestic beans, but that's not always the case. At Café Avellaneda, however, you can be certain that the coffee in your cup was brewed from beans grown in the Mexican states of Chiapas, Oaxaca, or Veracruz. The space is small but staff is warm and welcoming, and it's an ideal spot for a cup of coffee before or after visiting La Casa Azul, also in Coyoacan. If you get your cup to go, head to Coyoacan's main plaza (pictured here) and enjoy its fountain and people-watching.

Mexico's capital is a great city for coffee lovers; after all, Mexico is a coffee-producing country, so beans are sourced locally. The origin of beans doesn't necessarily ensure a fantastic cup of coffee, however; that's dependent, in large part, upon how the beans are processed and, ultimately, the expertise of the barista. At Café Avellaneda, beans are air-roasted in small batches, and all staff is trained in the art of preparing coffee in a way that's incredibly meticulous. Each month, staff selects three coffees they want to work with, and develops a coffee menu that all employees have to agree upon before it's introduced to patrons. Coffee nerds won't want to miss this café.
