of Mérida is generating great expectations among residents and visitors to the city.

for domestic and foreign tourists and also for us as meridanos, as well
has happened in other cities of the country,” said Mario Alonso, a young professional who walks through this site every day.
The new Starbucks of the Historic Center will have an internal coffee shop area and benches outside to enjoy the afternoon outdoors in this
The chain has so far seven establishments in the city, and this one becomes the eighth branch of the most important coffee brand in the country and world.
The first Starbucks store opened in 1971. At that time, the company was
a single store at Pike Place Market, a historic marketplace in Seattle,
Washington, U.S. From its narrow storefront, Starbucks offered some of the best freshly roasted grain coffees in the world.
The name, inspired by the novel Moby Dick, evoked the romanticism of
high seas and the maritime tradition of the first coffee merchants.
