On this episode, host Jorge Meraz explores the finest coffee spots in Tijuana — from a roastery that purchases and roasts 100 percent Mexican specialty coffee beans — to a cafe that pioneered specialty coffee, and whose brewing sensei began his career in the fields of Chiapas growing coffee beans, whose expertise rivals none. He also visits a seafood taco place that had its origins on a food truck. He samples a shrimp adobada taco, deep fried octopus taco, wrapped-fried cheese taco with avocado and chipotle sauce, and a starfruit tostado.
