Freshly roasted coffee in Ajijic Mexico
Ajijic is a small but very picturesque town on Lake Chapala, state of Jalisco, Mexico a mecca for many people coming from the North of the continent for a vacation or to retire.
I will make another post about this beautiful town later. For now, I want to bring to your attention some photos on freshly roasted coffee in Ajijic.
This image is from a downtown coffee shop. As you can see, here they will spoil you with all kinds of coffee from Mexican areas like Oaxaca, Veracruz or Green Mountain (I don’t know where that is…)
The tables are decorated with coffee beans covered by glass,
… and on a wall I saw a very informative collage of illustrations on the coffee production process:
Talking about freshly roasted coffee, what I liked most was that we could buy it for a very low price at the nearby market (mercado). Oh, that market running once a week was a real dream for the long-term visitors 🙂
The freshly roasted coffee at the local market was a big seller and if you were not there early enough, you were risking going home without…
I think that the (typical) rusted primitive tools for grinding and weighing made the whole experience more exiting – ha, ha… The coffee was very good tasting though.
… and here is a close-up on the coffee grinder 🙂

Ah coffee – freshly roasted, but then I love tea too, probably more anti oxidants – … can’t choose! But thank you for sharing thw coffee experience with All Seasons! have a great week!
Sometimes the old ways are the best. The coffee grinder looks a lot like the meat grinder I got from my mom. – Margy
I know, we used these kind of meat grinder back home too… and I honestly think it is one of those. Mexicans are very creative 🙂
Thanks, for the info – I like freshly roasted coffee too!
I’ll always take a good latte. 😀
