Best Taste of Honduras without Leaving Kentucky: Unataza Coffee

Unataza Coffee was born from owner Alejandra Flores’ desire to bring together two places she loved dearly: Northern Kentucky and her native country of Honduras. Flores initially opened Unataza as a pop-up shop and facilitated coffee origin trips to her home country to show the process behind the beloved beverage. In fall of 2019, Unataza Coffee opened a brick-and-mortar in Dayton, Kentucky. In addition to South American-grown coffee beans used in a slew of caffeinated beverages, the cafe also offers a petite menu of Honduran-inspired dishes, like the Tacoma Taquito, a sort of breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs, refried beans, grilled peppers and onions, cheddar cheese, onions and cilantro and some savory, crunchy turkey bacon. They also have a variety of pastries available from local bakeries.
