CUSCO | Uma Cafe is a small cafe that serves up some of the best coffee in Cusco. The Peruvian beans are organic and sustainably sourced, and coffee is brewed using Kangen water, a filtered, ionized alkaline water that’s purported to be ‘cleaner’ than other water. We’re not sure if there’s actually any benefit to drinking ionized alkaline water, but what we do know is that the coffee here is delicious, and certainly filtering the water can’t hurt.
It’s a small space, with a counter and coffee making station taking up the back section of the room, with enough seating for around 10 people. It’s central but just out of the tourist heart though, so the vibe is very chilled and the place doesn’t get too hectic.
You can get your usual espresso-based and filtered coffee drinks at Uma, along with things like golden, chai, and matcha lattes. For vegans and others who don’t want cow’s milk, there’s sesame, quinoa, and bazil nut milks on offer.
Food wise it’s a selection of healthy breakfast and lunch dishes, along with a few cakes and pastries. There are also several vegan options on the menu. We opted to start our day with a banana, strawberry and grain smoothie bowl and it was delicious.
Oh and if you bring in your empty water, the folks at Uma will fill it for free with Kangen water.
