Why Palenque?

Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico

Ever wonder where Palenque Coffee House got its name?

Palenque was a super city created by the Mayan people of what is present-day Mexico. It flourished in the 7th century AD/CE, and once had thousands of inhabitants. When the Mayan civilization collapsed, the city fell into ruins, being overrun by jungle flora. Today it’s a major tourist attraction that plays host to visitors the world over.

Palenque Coffee House founder Brad Eisenberg was inspired to name his new coffee venture after his travels in Mexico and Central America, and chose Palenque as the name.
