The Breakdown

Good Coffee - Fresh Beats


The Breakdown started as the dream of husband and wife Ryan and Natalie Ethridge. After spending a year traveling around the world they found that there was one thing that seemed to be consistent wherever they were, finding a local coffee shop. And not just any old shop, but one that had good coffee, a fun atmosphere, and of course sweet tunes. Each morning they’d start their day with a cup of coffee and perhaps a sweet treat from a cafe they’d discovered. 

When they decided to settle in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, they wanted to bring what they enjoyed most to their new neighborhood. A place for locals to hang, tourists to stop by and wanderers to get lost in. So The Breakdown was born. Serving single origin, nitro infused cold brew, freshly ground pour overs, hand shaken cold brews and local artisanal treats. 

All products are sourced right here in Mexico, like the beans from Mexico City roasters, Buna Coffee. Not only are they local but all products are also eco friendly with a positive message. Buna takes a personal interest in the people behind their products. And all take away products used to serve you your delicious coffee is biodegradable, even the straws!

Ryan and Natalie have put their all into making The Breakdown the ideal place to come and enjoy fresh coffee and good beats.
