With less coffee available to bring to the market, the Cuban government introduced a rations system in 1962: subsidizing four ounces of coffee per person per month. Café con chícharo, or coffee with chickpeas, was also brought to market. "It's a mix of ground, toasted beans and toasted chickpeas," Goldberg says, "made in an effort to get more coffee to more people." Café con chícharo makes an earthy, rustic, and slightly bitter brew, so adding sugar to coffee is commonplace. This chickpea/coffee hybrid is sold throughout the city at bodegas, Cuban neighborhood ration stores. Coffee can still be purchased at regular markets, called mercados, but at a significant markup that most Cubans, who make an average of $20 a month, can't afford. Because of the limited quantity of coffee, the drink is always consumed in small amounts from small cups known as tacitas.
