It was towards the end of 2019 that two friends dreamed of a new coffee concept while drinking a cafecito. An idea was born as they took a look at a cafetera and decided, why not make a giant one? By March 2020 they brought their concept to life. La Cafetera is about 13 feet tall by 7 feet wide, and mounted on a trailer ready to go to any event or location. Although the pandemic started in 2020, it did not stop them from brewing up their dreams.
John Fernandez and Alexander Linares hope to spread the cafecito love across the country. As Linares said "We wanna bring smiles in this time of disaster and pandemic and all this negative energey... we are trying to bring some light to that".
They have been able to adapt their concept to do parades, private, commercial and community events.
To see what they are up to next you can find them on Instagram @lacafetera.305. You just might find John or Alex inside the Cafetera prepping the espresso. They offer the Cuban classics: cafecito, cortadito and cafe con leche.
