San Diego's Award-Winning Mostra Coffee To Open New Cafe Location

May 14, 2022

San Diego's award-winning Mostra Coffee will open its 4th area cafe later this year. 

Founded in 2013 by longtime friends Beverly & Sam Magtanong, Jelynn Malone, and Mike Arquines, Mostra Coffee was launched with the goal of spotlighting the Filipino coffee industry. In 2020, the coffee company was named as Roast Magazine's Micro Roaster of the Year. Named after the Italian word for "show", the company currently has cafes in Carmel Mountain Ranch, 4S Ranch, and Bankers Hill. Mostra also works closely with many brewers in the craft beer industry to assist with beer and coffee collaborations, boasting collaborations with more than 100 craft breweries around the world to make over 400 coffee-flavored beers. 

The fourth cafe location for Mostra will open in the standalone space that last housed a Cotixan Mexican eatery in San Diego's Mira Mesa neighborhood. This will be Mostra's first store with a drive through window, and like other branches will have a menu of coffee and espresso drinks brewed on a Mavam machine. Signature drinks include the Crème Brulee latte, One Bra-Zillions Coconuts cold brew and Campfire Latte. There will also be a pastry counter and Mostra beans and merchandise available for purchase. 

In April, following three days of coffee competition across six stages inside the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Mostra Coffee took home the United States Roasters Championship award at the 2022 United States Coffee Championships. Mostra Coffee roaster Nick Berardi will now go on to represent the United States at the World Coffee Championships later this June in Milan, Italy.

The new Mostra Coffee cafe will open later this years at 8110 Mira Mesa Boulevard in San Diego's Mira Mesa. For more information about Mostra Coffee, visit
