Mexico is one of the most important producers of coffee in the world—and yet it is still really hard for us to differentiate a good cup of coffee from a really bad one.
But that is beginning to change, thanks to a handful of people who are committed to educating coffee-drinkers and making high-quality coffee using the great beans that we cultivate here. One of these people is Lalo Perez Varona, owner of Buna, a Mexican business dedicated spreading awareness about the importance of drinking delicious coffee.
We visited him at his studio in Colonia Doctores in Mexico City. There, workers grind, roast, and prepare different bean blends that are served in coffee shops all over the city.
