Andrea Ley introduced café de olla,
a Mexican coffee prepared in a traditional earthen clay pot, to San Antonio coffee drinkers when she launched her business Olla Express Café
The brand expanded to include a mobile VW coffee truck, wholesale and subscription services, and a designated coffee station – serving cafe de olla, mezcal infused-coffee and cold brew – inside La Taqueria de Monterrey.
However, Olla Express Café
is poised to grow by leaps and bounds in the coming months.
"We have plans for a second stationary VW unit that will open with the same [Olla Express Café] look, but with a permanent location in downtown San Antonio,” Ley told the Current
The permanent location's address will be announced in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, coffee lovers can find Ley and Olla Express Cafe at a ribbon cutting event
with the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
at Central Library
on Monday, Sept. 30.
Ley will also be celebrating a new collaboration between Olla Express Café and La Casa Frida on Oct. 9 at the Mexican Cultural Institute
