Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre, the laidback town of Coatepec is a lovely place to visit that is known for one thing and one thing only – coffee.
Surrounded by endless farms, coffee plantations, and cloud forests, the town has long produced some of the best coffee in the country, with ‘La Vereda’ and ‘Bola de Oro’ being among the most popular.
As such, no visit to Coatepec can ever be complete without trying at least a couple of its famous brews, and there are loads of places around town where you can grab a cup or two.
While its coffee is undeniably delicious, Coatepec actually has much more to offer.
The center of town is full of magnificent old colonial buildings, and lots of restaurants and bars sell traditional local fare.
The best time of year to visit is in September when the whole town springs to life to celebrate San Jeronimo, its patron saint.
