Due to the increased worldwide interest and popularity of high end quality tequilas, Café Coyote in Old Town has appointed Mario Marquez as what they believe to be the first ever "Tequila Ambassador." The concept of a Tequila Ambassador is similar to that of a sommelier. Our Tequila Ambassador will help guide our guests through our list of over 100 tequilas and give recommendations according to guests' taste preference, food pairing and price range.
Tequila is fast becoming the hip new drink of choice. As North America's first distilled drink and first commercially produced alcohol, the history of tequila dates back to the early 1500s. The word tequila itself is thought to be a Nuhuatl term meaning "the place of harvesting plants." Lehn Goetz (owner of Café Coyote) says, "Tequilas are not just for doing shots and mixing in Margaritas anymore. Many customers enjoy sipping our fine tequilas like a good Cognac. Many of the tequilas are aged and refined in a similar manner to Cognac and we felt it was time to give our customers the information and knowledge they were looking for."
Mario is the perfect choice for our new position. Mario has traveled extensively in Jalisco and Guanajuato, Mexico (the Tequila region), tasting tequila and learning about the process that makes tequila great. Mario has met with numerous tequila masters and has extensive knowledge of the unique secrets that go into making a quality tequila.
Please be our guest and come to Café Coyote, Old Town. Meet Mario and share his knowledge, experience, passion and love of tequila and the Mexican culture. Choose from over one hundred (100) tequilas and find out who made them, what different tastes they have, and their rich and long history.
