If you think there's no better way to defeat these hot, groggy mornings than with an early dose of caffeine — you're absolutely right. Whether it's an eye-opening espresso or an aromatic americano, The Coffee Road is always ready to serve locally sourced coffee from three major regions of Peru, including Bagua Grande in Amazonas and Villa Rica in Junín. The baristas have mastered the art of making cold-brew coffee to appeal to those who want a refreshing take on the morning drink. If you like sweet treats try the affogato, gelato drowned in a shot of hot espresso. If you also believe the best way to start the day is with a walk, take your coffee to go and sip it during your morning stroll.
