After the hurricanes of 2017, Café Comunión's Abner Roldan persisted, serving coffee on the street outside its ravaged café.

Roldan, a former teacher turned prize-winning barista loves to educate customers about coffee, so much so that he dedicates a podcast to it. Roldan honed his trade in another coffee capital—Portland, Ore.—before setting up this modern, Spanish tile-floored shop in the artsy Santurce neighborhood.
