3. Proyecto Diaz Coffee
Get your morning started right. Proyecto Diaz’s motto is “caffeinate with purpose” because they are focused on importing Mexican coffees that rebuild the coffee farming infrastructure that doesn’t get as much attention as it should from the global coffee marketplace.
They have a bi-weekly subscription service or you can buy individual roasts from the farms that they work with.

If you’re thinking far enough ahead make an order from Collectivo 1050 Grados - an Oaxacan collective of ceramicists - which features stunning craftsmanship and delightful motifs.

6. Literary delights
If you want to give the gift of deep consideration then consider two books that will take your breath away.
As profiled in our Mezcal in Pop Culture article Under the Volcano is an underappreciated literary masterpiece. It’s also Mezcal soaked and a deep dive into the experience of Mexico that will reward literary seekers read after read.
Granville Greene’s Mezcal Rush is like a New Yorker essay about the contemporary world of Mezcal in book form. It’s three years old now but just as fresh and resonant. Greene embedded himself with distillers and brings their craft and the surrounding culture to life but he doesn’t stop there, he travels along with the Mezcal to look at how it’s sold in the U.S. and how these different cultures are intertwined.
