Museo del Café Córdoba

Top choice in Veracruz

The ground floor of the city's cultural center have been transformed into this well-designed museum on Córdoba's prime product: coffee. Most explanation panels have English translations and entry includes an excellent tasting session in the museum's cafe where you'll learn plenty more about the drink. A good gift shop also provides a chance to purchase local specialty beans and other souvenirs.
