Kiva Han Coffee, a distributor and wholesaler located in Cranberry, has bought the local coffee chain Crazy Mocha. What does that mean for Pittsburgh coffee drinkers? Potentially a lot of good things.
The chain’s founder, Ken Zeff, will continue as head of retail and director of operations and Crazy Mocha’s 29 current locations (nearly all in the Pittsburgh area) will remain open. Expect new locations as well, plus an expanded customer loyalty program and more flavorful coffee thanks to a new approach to roasting.
Kiva Han has served as Crazy Mocha’s roaster and distributor since 2007. Now, as the parent company, they can help Crazy Mocha begin roasting their own coffee and fine-tune the recipe to create a better flavor. The plan also includes more training for baristas and more communication with customers about exactly what they want.
