Hey Tater... by pixie on 2002-01-29 12:21:22

Your description of the Mexican coffee made me salivate -- along similar veins... if you ever get to Puerto Rico you should check out their coffee! They grow their own over there, but, because the island is so small they export nothing! Puerto Rico was doing "cafe con leche" before Starbuck's, Seattle's Best et al ever started doing their thing. Oh -- was there chocolate in that coffee I'm wondering? Mexican chocolate on it's own is also divine! (I'm NOT trying to turn this into the food channel--honest)

  Chocolate is wrong. Just wrong.

Its the opiate of the masses and we shall have no more spoken thereupon.

Or at least, that's how I feel, and everyone disagrees.

I'll hold up my hands and leave this subject for good, then.

  No, not above addiction, just a firm believer that a prevention should always outweigh a cure.

  Mmmmmmm... Mexican chocolate, with cinnamon and ground almonds. Ibarra brand is the best, I think. Very, very delicious.

  Coffee must be for the bourgeoisie in Mexico. I traveled extensively by third class bus to non-tourist areas and whenever I asked for coffee I was given a cup of hot water and a jar of instant Nescafe.

  Tommie, even in the Zona Rosa, Mexico City's best neighborhood, I had crummy coffee! We picked this restaurant just because we saw an espresso machine through the window, but when we ordered cappucino after lunch, we saw them pour the coffee back through the same grounds twice to make it taste "stronger." The Nescafe was actually better. I think Tater must have drunk some San Franciscan's idea of what Mexican coffee could be in a perfect world, kind of a riff on the hot chocolate, which really is very yummy. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
