No idea what coffee you are referring to, but the coffee grown here in the Costa Grande of Guerrero mostly comes from two sources: the sierra of Atoyac and the sierra of Zihuatanejo. Café Caracol sells coffee from Atoyac, while Café Galeana and Café Zihuatanejo sell the kind from our sierra.

I just realized Zihuatanejo Coffee used to be called Ixtapa Coffee. A mind is a terrible thing to be wasted.

I understand that one. Cafe Ixtapa they were delivering bags of it to La Solieado last week, it smelt so strong I had to turn around to ask. They told me it was from the tierra of Zihua. There is a small coffee shop on Cuatemoc could it be from there?

Yes, they have a very nice not so small store about 5 blocks down Cuauhtémoc street from the zócalo on the right. Amazing flavor!

Great article.
Café Zihuatanejo is our favorite from the region.
We always take a couple of kilos of beans back stateside with us when we have to leave paradise.

See their listing on my Shopping page. Café Galeana is also listed and they are the same coffee.
