Honduras-based coffee company, Espresso Americano, announced today that it will open its first U.S. location on November 17th in Village Plaza Shopping Center in Greenwood Village. The largest Latin American coffee concept with 165 company-owned stores in Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Espresso Americano’s newest store, located at 5322 DTC Blvd, No. 200, will be the first of five locations to open across Denver in the coming months and the company’s first foray into the United States.
“As we sought a location for our entry into the U.S, we recognized that the Denver coffee drinker is sophisticated and appreciates the independent companies that offer an authentic experience ”, says David Kubena, Director of North America for Espresso Americano. “Espresso Americano has a very grassroots approach as a business. Although this is our first store in the U.S., we have been in business for 80 years, the farm is still family-run and 80 percent of the coffee comes directly each yearly crop, which we then process and roast ourselves. There is incredible pride all the way down the line and we know the Denver coffee drinker will appreciate the passion behind every cup of coffee we serve to our customers.”
Espresso Americano grows Arabica beans, which are roasted as a true espresso-style coffee, with a dark roast that enhances the Arabica bean’s many flavors and aromas. Espresso Americano will offer a full menu of coffee beverages including lattes, cappuccinos, signature drip coffee and specialty drinks such as their Coffee Granita and Valrhona mocha.
Latin Trade Business and Superbrands magazines highlighted Espresso Americano as “The Best of Latin America” in the coffee category, and the company has figured among the 20 most admired and respected regional trade marks.
Espresso Americano is committed to its passion for providing great products in a welcoming environment, maintaining the high standards that every Espresso Americano store requires.
In the words of Eduardo Kafati, CEO of the Company “We live our passion and we love our coffee, we are sure you will too…welcome to the Espresso Americano family”
