I wanted to share (shameless plug) some of the fun things we are doing with our time. I L❤️VE roasting coffee and I L❤️VE making sweets and baked goods. Like I say all the time...Coffee goes great with something sweet!

It started back in El Paso assisting someone with a small gift giving event for a non-profit organization and now has grown to a big part of what we do. Which I'm thrilled...because I've always loved creating gifts of sweets and coffee and present them in unique ways depending on the event. 

Since then...we've done several weddings with coffee in small coffee bags or mini burlap sacks. We've done a bridal shower with decaf coffee favors along with the caffeinated option that was a big hit. 

Now, we've added some of our confections such as our handmade salted caramels, hot chocolate on a stick and mini jars of our new salted coffee caramel sauce...YUM!

I love a little sweet with my coffee...is that so bad? (wink wink smiley face)

I've always had a sweet tooth and I've always loved to bake and make candy. While John and I have been eating a lot healthier and watching the calorie intake, we've been very successful in losing weight. I will say that I don't deprive myself of something a little sweet every now and then. For me, I have been able to lose weight and still enjoy some tasty treats along the way. Everything in moderation, right?  

One of my favorite sweets to make is salted caramels. It is quite a process...not that it's a difficult recipe...you just need time and patience. And...during the heat of the summer in Arizona, I am able to ship out unlike our chocolate confections,

I've been doing more and more favors for weddings, showers and other corporate events utilizing our coffee beans and now we are creating amazing favors/gifts with our confections. It's a special way to offer a wonderful handmade memorable gift to give to your wedding guests, party goers, corporate employees or customers. 

If you're feeling a "sweet tooth" coming on and need something delivered locally or shipped.....or have a special event you would like to discuss....I'm happy to make something special for you.

So Much More!

Hwy 28 La Union, NM.

Hwy 28 La Union, NM.

How time flies! Three years ago on March 1, 2013 we officially opened the doors of Johnny Lolita's. Our original plan was to create a local Coffee Shop. A place for folks to hang out, visit and have the Best cup of coffee ever.

Very quickly we discovered that our little Coffee Shop on Hwy 28 in La Union, NM was a conduit for our varied interests and passions. We created a thriving Artisan's Market as an outlet for our artistic side. Lolita began filling special orders for her hand-roasted coffee, confections and baked goods. Through it all she continued to hone and refine her coffee roasting skills.

Our little Coffee Shop was our home as well as the home for many of our friends. When we began Johnny Lolita's it was with one basic idea, to embrace life and pursue our passions. We had no idea where this would lead, much less that it would take on a life of its own! Consequently we quickly outgrew the confines of our little shop on Hwy 28 and moved to a bigger facility...the Internet. 

Having a "brick-less" store allows us to serve you when and where it's convenient for you. The path we are following presently is to help you explore different ways to entertain in and enjoy your home. Coffee is the cornerstone. What goes better with coffee than something sweet? Not only will you find all of Lolita's hand-roasted coffee and delicious confections, but you'll discover tutorials, recipes, hand-crafted items for your home, ideas and more. And, to help keep things interesting you'll be able to enjoy Johnny's latest musings.  

One thing we have discovered since March 1, 2013 is that "we don't know what we are doing, but we're having fun doing it!" Come and join us on the adventure and discover your passions!
