MEXICO CITY (CNN) - A new Starbucks store opens in Mexico City and it's brewing more than just coffee.

The coffee shop is the first exclusively operated by people over 60 years old.

The move is part of Mexico’s labor initiative that seeks to employ senior citizens.

And so far, Starbucks is the only company in Mexico using the business model.

If you'd like to stop by for a cup of joe, it's in the historic Coyocan (co-joe-ah-kahn) neighborhood.
