What would be your answer if I invited you for a cup of coffee to keep the cold weather away? Now, what if I invited you to have a tequila with that coffee in a bar? That’s 1921® Aromas.
Only a few that have enjoyed the beauty of the aroma of coffee in the morning or at the evening while watching the night falling enjoy the delightfulness of the aromas and flavors that a cup of coffee with tequila have.
1921® Aromas is a contest in honor of the few that delight themselves with the flavor and aroma of a good coffee with the taste of high quality liquor; for those that look for relief to break the routine in the flavor of coffee.
Last December 18 of 2018, we kicked off this fantastic project in which we are looking to unite the best mixologists in the world capable of creating the perfect combination between coffee and 1921® Tequila. We appreciate the support from Hotel Xcaret México to help us have this event in their venue.
