Cafe de Olla: Unplugged Coffee, Mexican Style

With the current overabundance of boutique coffee shops in the Valley serving small-batch. single-source coffee -- each high-end bag listing the name of the farmer, roaster, packager, graphic designer, delivery driver, etc. -- poured steaming hot or cold in a variety of creative and highly decorated coffee drinks, it comes as no surprise that the flavorful and sweet café de olla continues to be completely shut out of American coffee cups. Take advice in coffee drinks from a country that highly favors instant coffee? Never!

It may be time to change that.
