Coffee lovers will enjoy a visit to the colonial city and pueblo mágico (magic town) of Coatepec, also known as Mexico’s coffee capital. Coatepec is situated in the mountains in the state of Veracruz on Mexico’s central Gulf coast, in the middle of one of Mexico’s largest coffee producing regions.

Coffee is one of the main exports of the state of Veracruz, and the Coatepec region produces some of the finest shade grown coffee in all of Veracruz. Coatepec coffee is recognized for its medium acidity, good balance, smooth body and flavor, and is also sometimes referred to as altura (high) coffee because it’s grown in the mountainous Coatepec region of Veracruz.
