Pasion del Cielo, coffee from around the Americas

So we caught a bit of a coffee bug in Miami. Our favorite place for a classic cortadito is still Versailles, but if you are in the mood for a little something else, Pasión del Cielo (we went to 100 Giralda Ave, Coral Gables, FL, though there are other locations) is a great place to enjoy a latte with a twist. In addition to a variety of iced coffees, frappes and lattes, the key feature that sets Pasión apart is that you get to choose what kind of coffee you get in your drink, and they have 12 varieties to choose from. Pasión has coffees from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Hawaii, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru, each with their own distinct qualities. It is the same price to order any of the coffees, except the rare Jamaican blue mountain, which is $2 more. When I went there, the full-bodied Brazilian coffee seemed to be a particularly popular choice, and given our affinity for Brazil, we were pretty excited. The coffee was great, flavorful and robust, and I liked the ability to customize. Another clever detail is that the coffee drinks all come with drink art. I really wish they had one of these shops in Chicago.
