I have also seen coffee from Oaxaca at the supermarket.
Coffee is grown in Veracruz and served at some of the most famous coffee places in Mexico. Still most Mexicans aren't fond of it, they want sweet flavors. So they might as well drink instant loaded with sugar.

Does every Latin American country have a special way of preparing coffee?

Any idea what variety is grown (robusta, arabica, etc.)? That might explain the lack of interest in it.

By strange coincidence, someone at work brought in a bag of Oaxaca roast. I'm going to give it a try, I'm curious to see what it tastes like. I'll report back my impressions here.

Mientras I wait to try the Oaxaca coffee at work, I'll tell you that my favorite coffee of late has been the Yurgacheffe Ethiopan. If you ever get a chance to try it, i highly recommend it. It's a high quality coffee with a very powerful fruity aroma and flavor. A very good coffee, one of the best.

Both Panama and Colombia grow geisha. If you can't afford or find pure geisha, you can find more affordable geisha blends in Colombia.

I had a chance to try the Oaxaca coffee that I mentioned a couple posts back. It's my first taste of Mexican coffee. I don't know how indicative it is of Mexican coffee in general. The bag is labelled from the Oaxaca Coffee Cooperative, it's a medium roast.
Unfortunately I'm not impressed. It's tastes more like a robusta to me. I wish I could say that it was good, but it's not particularly good. I'm not real suprised, if you go online and look at photos of the countryside in that region, it does not look well-suited as coffee-growing terrain. It looks a little too dry, not enough steep mountains.
