Merida Coffee Roaster

Very little beats the smell of roasting coffee beans – especially in wood-fired roasters.  The first time I came across the thick aroma encompassing a city block with the sticky, dark flavor was in Ciudad Valles in San Luis Potosi.  There the roaster was old, a little grimy and stoked by Huastecan ladies.  It was a discorvery to be savored.

Here in Merida the same, rich smell enveloped me near the Santa Ana square as I walked and photographed.  This roaster, Cafe Cafico (924.27.00) not only provided freshly ground espresso they had roasted but the first Cuban coffee I have tasted in Mexico that tasted like the Cuban coffee I grew up on in Tampa and wait to enjoy when I am in Miami.  The machine is neat, too.
