They supply at lot of places in the Mexican Riviera. Claudio who runs it has a deep passion for coffee and personally imports it from different parts of Mexico.
What is their address? The website just says the legal address and its in Nicte Ha! Do you know what street/ave?

And Sapori di Casa on south side corner of Constiutentes/20 Ave apparently sells Cafe Kaawa coffee as another option

i buy from a local roaster, a lovely italian woman
her beans and roasting are impeccable
all mexican, all the time

my favorite, recommended by la jefa: an organic medium roast from oaxaca
starbucks??
costs five or six times more, and frankly is not as good
and i love starbucks

i can hook anyone up who wants to sample the local stuff
I love buying from small vendors that do a personal touch.
Steve,next time I see you I will take that offer for good coffee

Café Kaawa is located in Nicte-ha all the way at the north end of Playa. It is not a place you might normally end up but one of those hidden things. It is between 5th and 5 bis and I believe the next to last street before the wall or end of Nicte ha because you run into Grand Coral , which is a wall. There is no signage and only a door and garage door with big tree in front of the building. Anyone in the area will be able to tell you where the coffee place is. Best to go in the morning because they go out for deliveries in the afternoon. I just added a photo and map to the article to help people find it.

Another good option for fresh roasted coffee!!!!! Right on 22nd St and just opened. It was formally the roaster on 40th St and 5th. It also happens to be a great little garden to enjoy a coffee. Hidden Playa!
