In January 2017, Coapa & Co was born becoming the first publishing house in Europe that specializes in original Mexican Spanish fiction. The publishing house’s goal is to promote this content in the form of books and audiobooks for the second and third generation of Mexicans living in the United Kingdom and Europe and for anyone who is interested in learning more about the diverse cultures and their languages from across Mexico. I decided on this mission since I noticed that many of the children born here are not familiar with many of the words usually used in Mexico.
