Caféro

Caféro/ Coffee Vendor

The Caféro Street Vendor walks the streets or has a designated place where they sit. They have thermoses filled with coffee. Some of these street vendors also have hot tea and hot chocolate in their thermos.

The Caféro carries a pack or bag filled with condiments. Stirring sticks, sugar, powdered cream and whatever else he may need. The coffee is served in small plastic cups or shot sized containers. Also, be aware, the coffee is usually pre-sweetened and is usually very very sweet. I think they use the coffee to flavor their sugar not the other way around.

The call of the Caféro is usually a very loud and unique whistle that announces their presence. They are very popular in the early morning hours and when everyone is feeling sleepy after lunch trying to get a caffeine boost to last the rest of the day.
