The Best Coffee in La Cruz! It’s in the Garden.

imageRight here at Marychuy Ortega’s Octopus’s Garden, an oasis in the middle of La Cruz De Huanacaxtle. She’ll make you breakfast, too. The coffee comes from a nearby plantation and roaster, all in the state of Nayarit. In the mountains. We prefer the dark roast. Marychuy grinds it for us, and the half-kilo bag comes to 125 pesos. That’s about a pound for about $6.75US. And, yes, it is very good, whether she makes or I make it at home. Lucky for us we wandered in there the first day we were here.image

And, there is a bar upstairs. Live music. We will return for the acoustic trio that plays on Saturday nights…even in the summer! Hasta Luego! By the way, Huevos Rancheros are 70 pesos. Really. That’s only a little more than $3.50 in Denver dollars. Hmmm.
