About Kahlúa

Kahlúa was first created in Mexico in 1936. Each bottle is still produced in Veracruz, Mexico where some of the world's finest coffee grows at high altitudes under the shade of citrus and banana trees. Kahlúa’s pure Arabica coffee is hand-selected, roasted in small batches and brewed. Then, it is combined with the warmth of locally-produced cane spirit and the vanilla and caramel to create the award-winning taste of Kahlúa.

Do restaurants exist outside the Northern Quarter?.This is the modern version of the old boys network dressed up in casual jeans.Those with connections,those with the right Promoters get their opening featured.Those who are not,those who are in a less trendy part of the city and are not white and middle class,tend not to.This website totally fails to reflect the diversity of Manchester.

I dont agree david. however if this website reflects anything its probably just the demographic of its readership.

Well it's better than it just being a website of reviews of chain bars and restaurants.
