At last, the East Valley has a coffee shop! Mi Kaffe in Pacoima has opened its doors and has been serving up some kickass coffee and delicious pastries to the community. I must say, their coffee properly fueled the long day of work I had ahead of me and left me craving more of the amazing flavor of the Mi Kaffe iced coffee, awesome smoothies,s yummy pastries, and delicious panini sandwiches.
Mi Kaffe is currently owned and operated by Gloria Solis and founded along with her husband Pete Salgado, who is the former manager of Latin superstar Jenni Rivera and current owner of TuYo, a bilingual digital entertainment network. “After growing up in San Fernando, I made a promise that one day I would return to open a business,” Salgado said in a statement. “My wife and I researched business we found that the city of Pacoima had no coffee shops or cafes. We take pride in being the first and only Coffee Shop and Cafe in Pacoima.”
He continued: “We love the fact that the community has shown us so much support, we could have gone anywhere, but being in our Latino community is the greatest reward.” Many thanks to Mi Kaffee for the invite and their lovely hospitality!
