I am the co-founder and CEO of El Café de los Sentidos: a social company with 6 years of experience in the coffee market. Since I co-founded the company I have been involved in different activities related with specialty coffee and non-alcoholic Mexican Traditional beverages. This allowed me to co-found Grupo Coexme a Non Profit Organisation with Luz María Osuna (the President of the Latin American Coffee Summit - the most important coffee event in Latin America) that supported the last year +300 coffee farmers with 7 million pesos.

In this activity we will taste the principal non-alcoholic Mexican Traditional beverages (tascalate, pozol, pinole, cacao, tejate, chilate, chocolate, 'chocolate mestizo', polvillo, etc.). We will explain and understand the background of each one of them and enjoy this experience full of flavors and aromas.

Do not miss this tasting menu with Alejandro if you are in Mexico City! This experience is a fantastic way to learn more about traditional beverages as well as the history and spirituality of corn (maize) and chocolate (cacao). Sipping drinks and talking to Alejandro is a delightful way to spend a morning. He was so friendly and sweet, helping us to taste more deeply and really appreciate fundamental flavors of Mexico. If you are a foodie or have an interest in coffee/tea/chocolate definitely book this experience!

Alejandro leads an amazing class on local beverages! I loved the opportunity to choose which cacao beans were used in each drink. Everything was personalized and I learned a ton. Plus, all the beverages were delicious and unique. Highly recommend!

My husband and I have lived in Mexico for more than three years and have tried a lot of food from different parts of the country. However, Alejandro showed us an enormous variety of traditional beverages we had never tasted or in some cases even heard of! Alejandro did an amazing job explaining the ingredients and processes, and the history behind the drinks. He’s also super knowledgeable about coffee! Overall an excellent an experience that I would highly recommend if you’re looking for something unique.

This was such a lovely and informative experience! Escape to a tiny cafe and get immersed in prehistoric beliefs through two significant crops (corn and cacao.) I felt my Host was very personable, deeply knowledgeable about production, history, and plant use. He prepared over 11 beverages for me to try as part of a bigger conversation about Cacao and the heart. Really enjoyed this and highly recommend. Also enjoy some nice coffees while you’re there.
