Mostra Coffee opens second location
Mostra Coffee, recently named 2020 Micro Roaster of the Year, is opening the doors to its new coffee shop in the 4S Ranch community of San Diego. The shop is dedicated to the community that rallied for it; after a petition was made to get Mostra a retail space in the area, more than 1,200 people had signed it in less than 24 hours.
When asked about opening up a business during a pandemic, Beverly Magtanong, Mostra co-founder, said: “You have to pursue what lights you up; not what makes sense, not what anybody else thinks is a great idea, but it is that deep voice inside that is telling you, that above all reason, this is the thing you are supposed to do. This is the courage of conviction. We have had every reason to quit along the way, especially during this pandemic and recession. But, when your purpose is so strong, you just take the next step and trust that it is going to work out. This is us taking the next step for our community and for our bigger purpose.”
In the last few months, Mostra quickly pivoted and made purchasing coffee easier and safer by offering express ordering and curbside pickup.
In addition to its locations in Carmel Mountain Ranch and 4S Ranch, Mostra Coffee plans to open a shop in Mira Mesa. San Francisco, New York and Manila are also reportedly in the works.
