Not a lot to say
about this pretty little town except that it's as close to the
most picturesque Mexican pueblo you may find. The road
into Canoas, about 40 minutes into the mountains from
Manzanillo, is paved with cobble stones and two cement tracks.
Many of the houses and fences are built with river rock.
This was my second
visit, this time looking for coffee and the processing plant.
The last visit was November and too early for coffee season
which starts in December. The coffee plant is off to the
right as you enter town near the 'concha de futbol'. The
type of roasting here seems to be only medium or Cafe Americano
but the plant was closed and our information was just from a few
small stores in town that sell coffee. I bought one bag
labeled 'Cafe Canoas' and heard that Walmart in Manzanillo
