Kahlua is originally from Veracruz, Mexico where some of the best coffee beans are grown.
Not only do they source their beans from local coffee plantations, but the sugar cane distilled is also local and at times grows side by side to the coffee plantations. A rich and luscious liquid from the glorious Mexican gods is what Kahlua embodies!
