A good coffee shop is an integral part of the community. You learn the faces (and even the names) of the baristas, they start to recall your order, and you look forward to your daily interaction — and coffee hit! Evi from Mocca Artisan Coffee loves meeting new faces and helping the community get that extra boost they need to have a good day.
“It gives me great satisfaction to see our customers smile and get excited over their coffees like a child would over Christmas presents,” she said. “It gets them through a rough day and I’m glad we can help in a tiny way. A lot of our customers feel like part of the Mocca family, and this is greatly rewarding for me.”
Mocca Artisan Coffee have a huge range of drinks for both coffee and non-coffee drinkers alike. But what would Evi recommend trying in each of the four seasons?
“In spring, you can’t go wrong with an iced coffee or iced latte as the weather warms up. We have a huge range of frappes that you won’t find in many other stores, which are great for summer. The weather might be a bit chilly during autumn, so try our fresh chai or turmeric chai to warm up your body. Winter doesn’t need to be gloomy; our artisan colour hot latte variants are perfect for someone looking for something different. We have matcha, red velvet, Nutella, black sesame and more.”
When Evi’s not busy serving up beautiful brews for her customers, you can find her dabbling in her second passion: woodwork. “I have a hidden talent for woodwork and make custom furniture and geometric art in my free time,” she said. Evi also enjoys taking a leisurely stroll through the supermarket and doing her groceries!
While Mocca Artisan Coffee is most known for their drinks, they also have some delicious snacks. According to Evi, their most popular food options include the Chicken Pesto Focaccia (yum!), their macarons, gluten free gateaux (cakes) and cheesecakes. Evi’s other favourite food destination in the Centre is Soonta, for their delicious Vietnamese delicacies. Anyone else’s stomach grumbling?
Evi thinks it’s the premium quality coffee beans, milk and skilful baristas that makes their coffee taste the best, and their awesome service that keeps customers coming back. “We always strive to bring the most friendly and fast service to our customers. We love creating a warm and clean café ambience for everyone to enjoy,” she said.
So, if you’re in need of a new local, make sure you stop by Mocca Artisan Coffee and say hello to Evi and the team. Whether you’re a critic of cappuccinos or love a latte, they’ll create the perfect brew just for you.
