By the end of the 19th century, the Mexican decided to visit Spain to know the land of her ancestors. A woman whose name was not remembered was enchanted by Madrid, its streets full of life, lacking in the energy and friendliness of the people. In Madrid, she decided to settle down.
She had only a few tiny pockets in her pocket, but especially the determination to start a new life at this place. Thanks to her dedication, she decided to do business in Madrid. She started out with a small shop selling coffee. The locals called it La Mexicana. She bought coffee from a man named José Rodríguez, the grandfather of La Mexicana's current director, Iria Rodríguez.
José was an orphan and he worked as much as possible to make money for food and lodging. He bought beans in El Barco de Avila and sold them in Madrid, also brought wine, which he sold to the priest for a large sum of money. Once, however, the merchant had no money, he offered Josh a bag of coffee.
In the coffee, José finally found his hobby. He began to grow it on the terrace of his house. The smell of coffee sprang up all over the street, and the neighbors who charmed this scent came to Josem to buy his coffee. José's quenching of coffee gave him glory throughout the neighborhood. This came to a Mexican woman who then sold her coffee.
The Mexican and José had worked together for many years and their relationship was about mutual recognition and respect, so much that the woman had asked him to take over the store.
In the 1930s, La Mexicana came into the hands of the Rodriguez family.
Since 79 La Mexicana has begun the expansion that has been inevitable with the widening customer demand.
Today, in the streets of Madrid, León, Salamanca and Toledo you will find 17 shops that you only know when you pass by - the smell of this roasted coffee is unmistakable.
The success of the roaster came to the Guinness Book of Records - the most expensive coffee in the world is sold in the Preciados street.
This story is totally magical and proves that great enthusiasm and even greater enthusiasm can build the whole society.
