The Idea

The dog

Mestizo Coffee Co. was born out of the desire to create a community of familiar faces where we could showcase Latin America from a different perspective.  A perspective of traditions and heritage defined by our roots, background, and flavors. In each cup of Mestizo's coffee, you can smell and taste traces of our hard work, humble gratitude, and pride in who we are.

Historically the word "Mestizo" was used in Spain and Hispanic America to refer to people who were a blend of European and Indigenous backgrounds.  Now, as a coffee company, we embrace the word affectionately to highlight the diversity in our flavors and beans, as well as the diversity in the products we sell in our shop.

Mestizo Coffee Co. opened its doors and served its first coffee on August 8th, 2018.  Earlier that year, when scouting locations, we stumbled upon an untouched East Hollywood neighborhood we had never explored before, and let's say we had a good feeling.  Years after making it our home, we've watched the neighborhood blossom and grow, and the community we longed to create is now the heart of our business.

We are a VERY dog friendly shop.  The "Mestizo" dog in our logo is a rendering of a few of our beloved four legged friends that have made an imprint on our hearts.  Dogs are distinguished guests in our shop, and we love to shower them with love.
