This is a hard thing for a reporter to admit, but I buried the lede when I told you about all the great things I ate in Miami over holiday break.

As much as I enjoyed my meals there, I’m persuaded it’s an even better city for drinking. Beyond the fresh juices and sophisticated cocktails, Miami is the stateside capital of cafecito culture. Cuban coffee is so central to daily routines and social networks that the city in 2013 designated 3:05 p.m. as Cafecito Time.
