Mexico is a country with an excellent coffee-growing tradition. This beverage is so essential that an entire culture and identity have developed around the bean and its industry. The coffee bean is cultivated on 761 thousand hectares throughout the country in a dozen different states.
Coffee is produced in 12 states of the Mexican Republic, located in the central-southern part of the country. These states are: Colima, Chiapas, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Puebla, Querétaro, San Luis Potosí, Tabasco and Veracruz.
In Mexico City, 44 coffee shops have joined forces to promote coffee consumption with a passport that will immerse consumers in the world of coffee through a route that will take them to the best coffee bars in Mexico City. The objective is to strengthen the work of small farmers, roasters, tasters, and baristas.
Tasting a Good Cup of Coffee
The Todos por el Cafe movement promotes this initiative. The aim is to recognize the collective work and the impulse generated by coffee producers and all those who are part of the coffee value chain.
With the passport, national and foreign tourists can trace a route through the 44 participating establishments to get to know the city while tasting a good cup of coffee.
"We made a passport for people to make a tour through different coffee shops. We want to promote the consumption of coffee from the field to the cup. The objective is to arrive, buy the passport and collect the stamps. It has a touristic, social, and business vision", mentioned Ricardo Otero, president of CANIRAC Tlalpan and founder of Cafe Galeno.
The passport costs 6 dollars (125 pesos) and can be purchased at participating establishments. These are the different districts and coffee shops where you can find Mexican coffee and a relaxed atmosphere.
For example, in the Benito Juárez district, you can see the mural of the Poliforum Siqueiros in the WTC. You can also visit the Parque de Los Venados and the Parque Hundido.
