Coffee is grown in southern Mexico, particularly the Chiapas region.

Yes Chiapas definitely has a lot of Coffee plantations. It also produces a lot of Cacao.

I have also seen coffee from Oaxaca at the supermarket.

You'll find that available everywhere in Colombia as well. Cacoa plants grow all over the place there. And in Mexico you go to the Puebla area there's a culinary emphasis on using chocolate-based stuff - I'm sure you've heard of mole. Cacoa also grows in Mexico.
Oh hell yeah. I love mole.

Interesting. So Folgers and things like that? I wonder whether the cans label the origin of the beans as from Vietnam.

In my life I have never (to my knowledge) tried Mexican coffee. To be honest with you, I'm not a fan of anything "tropical" that comes out of Mexico - mangos, etc. I feel they are an inferior quality, no taste, etc. Last year I had the chance to try some Chinese coffee in China. I was not impressed. Again - same thing. They don't have the climate for it except for one small corner region which doesn't seem exactly appropriate for cultivation.

I am surprised to read this. Mexican mangos, specially from the Socunusco region of Chiapas are very good. Most of Mexico actually lies within the tropics.

LOL I love mangos. I wish I could try some of those.

The only Colombian products I can get around here is coffee and that soda with the eagle on it, La Colombiana I think its called.

I'm sure there's some long-standing political reason why mangos and other fruits are not imported from Colombia. Go to an Indian grocery and see if you can find mangos. Then you'll get an idea of what they taste like in Colombia.
