I know many many of you were disappointed when Johnny Lolita's decided to close the brick & mortar coffee shop on HWY 28 in La Union. We were looking to grow our business in what I...(aka Lolita) was uber passionate about....roasting coffee.
Our goal is/was and forever will be, delivering fresh, roasted coffee. I had the ability to find top quality green beans from all over the world and truly begin to perfect my roasting. The results have been fantastic and I feel I've accomplished so much in the last year since we closed the actual shop.
Now, I am able to focus on my local customers by delivering fresh roasted coffee locally (Las Cruces/El Paso area), create automatic monthly subscriptions to our dedicated customers who never wish to miss a single day of Johnny lolita's roasts AND our newest stream...providing fresh roasted coffee to unique coffee bars, specialty food trucks, restaurants, hotels & more!
Currently we have new accounts beginning in Arizona, however, we NOW have an uber ( I know...uber is my favorite word today) cool place to grab a wonderful cup of roasted Johnny Lolita's deliciousness here in El Paso.... AND the place is Trade Craft.
Trade Craft is a place to unwind with dark wood and exposed brick walls surrounding you. Tall backed booths to work and read quietly while sipping your favorite cup of french pressed coffee or espresso based drinks. The electrical plugs are well thought out for the traveling sales rep, student or "techy" guy/gal by providing plugs and usb ports as well.
Looking for a new twist on your coffee? How about an espresso, tonic water with a lemon twist? It is de-ish and refreshing especially as the summer heats up! How about taking it another step further? How about some brandy, (my fav) or your favorite liquor in your coffee? How about a specialty made cocktail that speaks of hand crafted workmanship and care so lacking in today's fast paced world? Right down to the brandy infused cherries that are made from scratch like so many of their syrups and sauces.
It's here people and it's the kind of place that young and old El Pasoans will enjoy. I really don't want to tell you any more....I'm not going to show you a bunch of photos of the place....you have to go and experience for yourself and yes...it IS an experience! Shhhh....tell them Lolita sent ya!
