La Mexicana – coffee at its best

Walking down c/ Preciados from Plaza Callao to Puerta del Sol, the wonderful smell of coffee hits you about a third of the way down. It comes from a shop called La Mexicana, which offers a small but superb collection of Columbian coffee. Coffee is a major part of Madrid life – café sólo, café con leche, café cortado, café con hielo, to name but a few – and this is one way of taking it with you. If you want a list of other La Mexicana shops around Madrid, go to their website.

  1. Hi Gary
    I have been unable to find this out but looking on La Mexicana website it says that they are members of the Colombian Coffee Producers Federation. On further investigation I ended up at Juan Valdez’s site –, which is mentioned by La Mexicana and these are a couple of companies that link from this site and who sell this Colombian Coffee online:;
    Hope this helps
