Ok, since the beans have been spilled already, we’re going to confirm it. YES, Moja is opening up a second shop on Commercial drive.

Moja on the Drive is a reality and construction is under way. Opening this Fall.

You know we’re more about good coffee and strong customer service than we are about hype… but we hope you help spread the word as we gear up to launch. More news and details in the coming weeks.

Summer Specials at Moja

BqgWtQuCQAIsqYA.jpg-large

First off, thanks to everyone who came out to our June Open House, it was one of our most spectacular open houses yet. We love the community that has embraced us over the past few years. Although our shelves are a little bit bare at the moment, we are kicking back into gear and getting ready for Summer too.

To celebrate Summer, we have two drink specials we think you’ll love.

First up, a cold brewed Kenya Tambaya, crisp & refreshing! Cold brewing coffee requires soaking the coffee in water for a prolonged period of time and the result is amazing. Come try it and let us know what you think.

Secondly, we have a tasty Berry Blend iced tea that is great for a little extra sweetness on hot days.

See you soon!
