Cafes to fight (and enjoy) the cold in Guanajuato


There is no doubt: coffee has gone from being an after-dinner procedure to becoming a gourmet and specialized product, even cultured and expressly appreciated. Such is the degree of passion that this black gold generates and such is the sophistication that the palate of its consumers is acquiring, that the initiatives to create amazing experiences around these drinks multiply.

In this case, the capital Guanajuato is a privileged city, because the contrasts provided by the architecture and its colors create unique environments, and in them, there are happy coffee shops. These places frequented by friends, acquaintances, family, lovers, and loners.

The fact of having to name one of them as the best (or the best) is frustrating and incense, because they all have their magic and charm. Spaces that amplify our senses to the degree of stimulating creativity, intelligence, and passions.

Balconies and terraces framed by a series of warm lights, tables sheltered by leafy trees, toasters that impregnate the smell of coffee in entire viceregal blocks, cobblestones, and flagstones that lead you to delight yourself with a great diversity of desserts … there is no end!

And for these cold seasons, what else can pamper us than a rich coffee or hot chocolate. So without further ado, we present you with this coffee circuit to enjoy these seasons in the charming city of Guanajuato.
