The Coffee Men of Centro

In the main square here in Santa Cruz you will invariably find half a dozen coffee men. They’re here all the time, they’re in the square before me on the earliest morning I happened by and they were still selling coffee in the square after I went home on my latest night out.

For 5Bs (about $1 Canadian) you get a cup of very sweet, very creamy coffee, it’s heavenly. The men push their carts around the square, people seem to drink the coffee almost constantly. Workers in the buildings around the square yell coffee orders down from the balconies and the coffee men run the drinks upstairs. I quickly fell into a pattern of seeking out the coffee men first thing each morning before even considering what to do with the day, I love it.
