Yes, home grown coffee will be everywhere.
I love, love coffee. I grind my beans every morning. I always bring coffee back when I travel to Central America or Mexico.
I look for freshness of the beans. If you tour a coffee plantation that would be a great place to buy coffee. I always look for a coffee cooperative, or second best ,a local coffee shop that will sell me beans.
Lat year in Huatulco, Mexico we watch as they roasted the beans we would buy from a local cooperative.
Try not to buy coffee in a grocery store or any tourist shop that sells other things.
Enjoy your coffee both on the trip and when you get home. Love beans from this area. But my all time favorite is Papua New Guinea beans, hard to get here in MN.
I have bought coffee in Costa Rica and Columbia. The coffee from Columbia was weak, then I read somewhere that Columbia exports their best coffee. In Costa Rica I bought my coffee in a grocery store where the selection was great. The coffee was wonderful and the price was very good. The stores will take USD but you will get their change back.
