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.
