Where can I find a particular brand of Mexican Coffee?
by Shawn from Visiting Jaurez.
“I recently took a quick trip to Jáurez Mexico and had the best coffee, in a hospital cafeteria of all places, but forgot to ask what brand of coffee they were using. What is the most popular/common coffee used around this area of Mexico?”
I’m sorry but I don’t know how I can answer this question without knowing more specifics. You could find a few independent online coffee roasters stores in Mexico in this area, and search their catalogues (this would be easier if you speak or read Spanish). Do a few test orders until you come up with a blend that approximates what you remember.
Mexico grows their own coffee so you might find that it’s not a brand but a particular region or blend of local coffee. I suggest if you can try drinking some of the local Mexican coffee blends, freshly roasted: I’m sure you’ll find several you like. Also read my Mexican coffee article, too, for more information.
Lastly, do remember that your memory may tweak the taste factor and it may enhance the flavors you recall especially if there were emotional factors at work as well. In other words, even if you find the same blend, will it taste the same the next time you try?
Good luck with your search, and let me know if you have any success.
