In 1883 Vicente Martinez Ybor cam to the sleepy Florida fishing village called Tampa. He had carried with him a dream to create a cigar industry town. He inspired other cigar manufacturers and Cuban cigar rollers to immigrate to what later became known as Ybor City. The immigrant town flourished to become the cigar making capital of the United States. The morning ritual for Cuban families began with rich coffee they called cafe cubano or cafe solo. Its enticing aroma would invigorate and energize them. Many added this robust coffee to steamed milk to create cafe con leche. Breakfast usually included a delicious Cuban bread which was originated in Ybor City. Consumed together, this was the staple of breakfast of the day. Today it is still the first choice for many Ybor residents and visitors. We keep that daily ritual alive with King Corona's rich, delicious, traditional Ybor Blend Coffee.

We discovered King Corona when we took a cruise out of Tampa and fell in love with their coffee-best we have had. On top of that, the folks at the store shipped it very quickly for us so we could get it in time for Christmas. Love the coffee, love the people-thanks!
