Taste of mexico Gift Crate
This stylish gift representing great tastes of Mexico includes:
La Esquina Salsa:Situated in NYC's vibrant Nolita district and most recently in Wiliamsburg, Brooklyn, La Esquina offers an innovative rendition on tasty Mexican inspired street food. Housed in the former Wythe Diner space, Café de La Esquina's original iconic building is a landmark within the Williamsburg neighborhood and dates back to 1952. The space features refurbished original aspects as well as new, unique elements combined to create a casual, and transporting atmosphere of New York meets Guadalajara. La Esquina, meaning "the Corner," became a hub of interest for restaurant-exploring New Yorkers, when rumors came that there was actually a second restaurant hidden below street level. Hidden behind a door marked "No Admittance" and "Employee’s Only," brave souls would find themselves faced with a maître d’, who would guide them through a rabbit warren of halls and stairwells to a secluded restaurant and bar. Sometimes called "the Vault," this speakeasy-style bar featured fresh, vibrant cooking and over 100 varieties of premium tequila. Clearly, La Esquina was out to turn some heads.

Organic Fair Trade Mexican Chiapas Whole Bean Coffee: These big, tasty Mexican beans come from the Mut Vitz ('Hill of Birds') Coffee Cooperative in the Northern Highlands of Chiapas. Like other indigenous peoples of Mexico, the Tzotzil farmers of Mut Vitz are under intense pressure from the government and the international corporate world to give up their identities and their lands. The pressures are as indirect as the international market price and the destruction of traditional landholding laws in Mexico, and as direct as armed incursions into the villages and the theft of their coffee harvest by paramilitaries. The beans are large and smooth, making for even roasting. They have excellent aroma, medium body with slight acidity. A mellow, medium roast coffee with a softly sweet flavor, these are the perfect beans for starting your morning. Certified Kosher by Vaad ha Kashruth of Springfield, Massachusetts.Whole Bean Coffee.
Organic Raw Maguey Sweet Sap Syrup; A traditional Organic Unrefined Raw Sweetener from the maguey (agave salmiana) plant, this sap is a natural source of valuable nutrients such as antioxidants and prebiotic dietary fiber. A maguey needs to grow for twelve years before it is ready to produce maguey sap, or aguamiel in Spanish. To obtain maguey sap, the central part of the plant is removed by cutting a hole in the shape of a bowl in it before it starts to develop a stem. Ingredients: 100% Organic Raw Maguey Sap. Cerified Organic by IMO.
