Fisher's Mom, I'm right there with you on the heavy cream. A rare treat for me is a double shot of espresso with a hefty shot of cream. No sugar. Mmmmm. Here in Mexico, they grow coffee mainly in Chiapas and Oaxaca, as well as our home state of Nayarit. I don't think the coffee I buy from Compostela, Nayarit ever makes it out of the region. It is grown and roasted by a small cooperative of families and is sold locally. But here is a link to lots of information about Chiapas coffees, which are rich, dark and wonderful:
Café MAM ORGANIC COFFEE Welcome to the world of good coffee. It is very rewarding - I sure am glad I married a man who loves coffee as much as I do!

Saludos, Karen

Mexico is hooked on caramel (cajeta), so there are many choices here for caramel syrup. Lots of shelf space in the grocery store...Hershey's Dulce de Leche seems popular. When I was still back in the states, I used to buy caramel in a can (Nestles) at the Mexican grocery. It is thick and gooey, very very tasty. If you really want to get decadent, you can eat it with a spoon! I used it for caramel macchiatos, but had to warm it up first to get it thin enough to pour. Hope everyone has a nice Saturday...be sure to include a good cup of coffee to make it bright!
They do roast it dark in Hawaii. It's a bold coffee bean sold in varieties of 10% kona mixed with other coffees and 100% kona. It beats Starbucks for me anytime. Hey, I'll need to try cajeta again soon on my coffee. They have a variety of brands here at our grocery store (since we're 5 minutes from the Mexican border) we're bound to have lots of Mexican food items. Which would you recommend?
