Moja on Commercial Drive: Opening Soon

mojacoffee

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.

For updates as they happen, follow Moja on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

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!

Support Bella’s Ball

For a while now, we’ve been donating 50% of the tips we receive at Moja to the DEBRA Canada, an organization that aims to heighten the awareness of a group of rare genetic skin disorders called Epidermolysis Bullosa, known as EB. Our donations to this charity were inspired by a close friend of ours whose daughter Raquel lives with EB.

Moja Holiday Hours

First off, thank you to everyone who came out the 2013 Holiday Open House, we had a great time. We served many a cappuccino and ground up more bags of coffee than we can count. We loved every minute of it, right up until we crashed at the end of it all ;)

Your Tips Help Raquel

For a long time now, we’ve been donating 50% of the tips we receive at Moja to the DEBRA Canada, an organization that aims to heighten the awareness of a group of rare genetic skin disorders called Epidermolysis Bullosa, known as EB. These skin disorders cause painful blistering and shearing of the skin from even the gentlest friction and sometimes spontaneously. Our donations to this charity were inspired by a close friend of ours whose daughter Raquel lives with EB.

From now on, 50% of the tips you add to the bowl at Moja Coffee are going directly to Raquel to help pay for her to go to school. Raquel is a bright and sociable little girl who loves doing normal things like play with PlayDough or play with her big sister. Raquel is hoping to attend a Montessori school just like any other kid, but needs some assistant to get there. If you want to learn more about Raquel, you can read the family’s blog here.
