Buying the Afternoon Delivery Guatemalan Bread

Somethings are changing in the Guatemalan lifestyle. Others, luckily, remain the same, like hot-just-out-of-the-oven bread delivery in the rainy afternoons in La Antigua Guatemala.

Here we see an indigenous woman purchasing some pan frances and sweet bread to prepare the afternoon “refa” (short for refacción or snack break), the only refacción some people got in their childhood even though there is also a morning refacción. 😉

The smell of the hot Guatemalan bread can make you stop for a bit from a busy schedule, like it did to me just the other day. I bought a cubilete and one champurrada to dunk in my cup of coffee.

What kind of bread would you buy from the panadero delivery?
