Near the center of Taos near the Plaza is a small coffee shop-World Cup. There are a few stools inside and in the summer you can sit on the stoop or take your drink around the corner to the Plaza. World Cup has serious baristas and expresso drinks-a few light cakes and scones and bagels, but the coffee drinks are... More

Don't miss World Cup on your trip to Taos. This tiny cafe is a major social center, and is the local equivalent of an Irish Pub - serving coffee. A wide variety of local and out-of-town characters pass through, providing superb people watching and a chance to overhear a memorable conversation. Enjoy the entertaining anti-establishment bumper stickers while chatting with... More

Wow! This is the only place to go in Taos for coffee. They use a French press and make the wait worth it. A great place to experience the local atmosphere and attitude of Taos while keeping our environment green.

This became our 'morning stop' for our cuppa daily caffeine. Free parking, a couple of benches outside, and right beside the cool little shopping area in town that is much bigger and more interesting than the guidebooks lead you to believe. Worth grabbing a coffee, walking/shopping, then having another!

Love this place. You call it, they make it. Deeply aromatic, delectable, every drop is like gold. Their espressos are like the ones we ordered in Italy every morning. It's mostly a locals thing, never seen a tourist in here although its just at the corner of Paseo and the entrance to the plaza. There's usually a place to park... More

Most dependable espresso and best brew in town. Parking may be a bit of a hassle at times but worth the effort to get a great cup of joe!

I needed a caffeine fix and stumbled across World Cup. It's a small place, but the crank out the orders fast. Try the Mocha Mexicana. It's sweet and delicious.
