The BEST Coffee Shops in Oaxaca City

Best coffee shops in Oaxaca City

Actualizado: 2 de diciembre de 2023

Como amantes del café, entre nosotros hemos visitado muchas cafeterías en OaxacaAquí compartimos una selección de nuestras cafeterías favoritas que debes visitar durante tu estancia en la Ciudad de Oaxaca..

México tiene tres regiones principales de producción de café: Veracruz, Chiapas y Oaxaca. Debido a su ubicación debajo de Veracruz y junto a Chiapas, con el Océano Pacífico rozando la Sierra del Sur, las fincas cafetaleras de Oaxaca se encuentran a una altitud de aproximadamente 900 a 1,850 metros sobre el nivel del mar. ¡Cuanto más alto, mejor para la producción de café!

El café producido tanto en Chiapas como en Oaxaca se conoce como 'Altura',ya que se cultiva en altitudes elevadas y se considera de muy alta calidad, siendo uno de los mejores cultivados en las Américas.Con el café disponible en las numerosas cafeterías de la Ciudad de Oaxaca a precios muy razonables (el precio promedio de un Americano es de 40 pesos / $2.30 USD), te brinda la oportunidad de probar los diversos granos de café producidos en la región y en otras partes de México.

One of the best coffee shops in Oaxaca City - Filemon
Filemon Coffee Productors, Oaxaca City

1. sagrado Filemón

Ofreciendo una fantástica selección de granos de café de todo Oaxaca, Sagrado Filemón es sin duda una de las mejores cafeterías en la Ciudad de Oaxaca. Aquí puedes probar tostados de regiones como Sierra Sur, Sierra Norte y La Cañada. Tienen café sellado y listo para comprar si quieres prepararlo tú mismo en casa. Un sencillo Americano es mi favorito personal, pero también me encantan sus experimentos con el Cascara Fizz y el Cold Brew Tonic: son extremadamente refrescantes en un caluroso día oaxaqueño, especialmente en su patio. Para aquellos que añaden leche a su café, su flat white tiene carácter y sus lattes son suavemente sedosos.

Claro, puedes acompañar tu café con un pan recién horneado de Sagrado o probar un platillo de su innovador menú de desayunos.

Abierto: Miércoles a Lunes: 7am – 9:30pm

4. CAFEBRE

One of the most impressive coffee shops in Oaxaca City is Cafébre. It may not appear so upon entering but once you get chatting to the baristas or see what coffee beans they have on offer, you’ll soon realise they know what they’re talking about. When we ordered a Chemex, it came with a side of cacao nibs that were a certain % of cacao that complimented the flavours of the Chemex perfectly. Their Instagram page gives a detailed description of each roast, detailing each one’s flavour and aroma.

At Cafébre, they source their coffee beans from regions throughout Oaxaca, such as Mixteca Alta and Sierra Norte. Using computerised software, Cropster, Cafébre can measure exactly the roast they want for their coffee and replicate this for consistency. You will regularly see their staff being trained on new beans or techniques on their Instagram stories and they usually host coffee training events for those who have an interest in knowing more. You can also take part in their regular coffee workshops to learn about being a barista or coffee tasting and aromas.

They also have a small boutique cafe in Colonia Reforma for those who like to get out of the centre for their coffee fix, offering a different menu focusing more on waffles than bagels.

Abierto: Monday – Sunday: 7:30am – 10pm

5. EL VOLADOR

This coffee shop has one of the best locations in Oaxaca City. Situated on one of the most photographed streets of Oaxaca, El Volador is hard to miss and it is perfect for a quick coffee fix. Café el Volador is best for a take out americano to start the day with or spend a lazy sun-kissed afternoon outside by the Cruz de Piedra, listening to the practising music students from the school opposite or catch the start of a calenda.

You can also buy coffee beans produced in Oaxaca, Veracruz or Guerrero at around 80 pesos per 1/4 kilo and have them ground for you there and then. Or go off the barista’s advice and take the whole bean home and grind it freshly yourself.

Abierto: Monday – Sunday: 8am – 9pm

6. MARITO & MOGLIE

Marito & Moglie is certainly one of the most aesthetically pleasing specialty coffee shops in Oaxaca City. Offering a selection of Oaxacan produced coffee from regions reaching as high as 1850 metres above sea level, this Italian/Mexican couple take a more professional approach to maintaining a ‘coffee shop’ status in Oaxaca City.

“As you walk in, you are first greeted by a lovely curved bar that features a brew station with three Hario scales and Kalita drippers and a San Remo Zoe compact espresso machine. On the wall, you’ll find various books including James Hoffmann’s World Coffee Atlas and a seasonally changing menu of local and international single-origin coffees.”

Not only do they serve outstanding coffee, but their food menu is exquisite and the duo are always experimenting with new additions, mainly inspired by mediterranean cuisine.

7. CAFE SL28

This 100% Oaxacan coffee shop offers a variety of pour over methods, which complements their lightly roasted beans and coffee that has subtle and acidic flavours.

Consistently praised for their attention to detail, excellent coffee experience and latte art skills, this hole in the wall coffee shop close to Jardín Conzatti is certainly worth a visit.

Abierto: Monday – Saturday: 8am – 8pm

8. CAFETO & BARISTAS

As one of the most sophisticated specialist coffee shops in Oaxaca City, they have a real focus on extraction methods and single-origin coffee. Their range of coffee beans pays homage to many communities of Oaxaca. Their knowledge of the origin of this coffee allows them to know exactly where each bean comes from, what variety it is, how it has been grown, and how it has been processed. All of this influences the final result you taste in your cup.

Making coffee is about experimenting – sometimes that ‘something new’ is a delicious recipe.”

– Cafeto & Baristas

Visit their website for blogs about yearly harvests and the regions they source their coffee from. You can also buy beans from their online shop or if you’re in Oaxaca City. I would highly recommend entering to chat with the baristas and be showered with information about all things coffee.

Abierto: Monday – Saturday: 8am – 6pm

Despite its cosy space, the extensive menu is a testament to the region’s coffee culture, featuring a remarkable variety of 100% Oaxacan extractions. Whether you’re a connoisseur seeking unique single-origin beans or a casual coffee lover looking for a delightful blend, Nono Café has something to offer for everyone.
