Jalisco coffee, drop by drop

In the midst of the glut of Guadalajara’s coffee chains, it is pleasant to find one that is full of character and that you probably never knew existed.

This tiny jewel — Cafe del Centro Historico Tapatio — serves only coffee grown in Jalisco. The cafe is easy to miss as you walk west along Calle Independencia, one and a half blocks west of 16 de Septiembre and the landmark Rotunda de Jaliscienses Ilustres. When you are behind the Templo de la Merced, don’t blink or you may miss this nearly century-old establishment with a coffee bar on its first floor and tables on a mezzanine where the city’s artists may be found sipping one of its half dozen or so varieties of coffee. These are unique, with names such as Caracolillo, Planchuela and Torificado, and they can be ground and sold by weight.
