Classic store, but not so much in terms of coffee.

La Confianza

Markets

Oaxaca's traditional markets do a better job of serving delicious hot chocolate rather than coffee (though Cafe de Olla can be served well). That said, some of Oaxaca's best coffee is for sale at the temporary markets. If you are hankering for a good cup of java, check out the following natural markets. Here are some of the options:

Benito Juarez, La Confianza, Local #311

- Pochimilco: Features Tierra Nu-Van
