Caffe Cocina was established in 2005 and purchased in 2012 by Eric Mahler and Mother, Sharon Mahler. Sharon expressed that she saw some real potential to make a “cheers” style coffee house where “everyone knows your name”. Eric, agreeing got to work and decided to start from the ground up. “What better way to get to know a business than by seeing it’s foundation”. Today, Caffe Cocina specializes in third tier espresso and tea from Zoka Coffee & Tea Co. “Partnering with Zoka has given us the ability to take our espresso experience to a whole new level”.
