Joseph Shin and Jed Mitra co-founded Coffee MCO in 2019 next to a bustling tour bus depot. They named their two-story coffee bar for Shin’s two dogs, Mason and Cohen, who each got a signature drink in their honor. Cohen the Weimaraner inspired an iced latte featuring house-made Earl Grey tea syrup and oat milk that’s “sophisticated with a unique touch of sweetness.” Mason the German Shepherd motivated a whole milk latte with house-made brown butter caramel and smoked sea salt that’s “playful & sweet with a familiar flavor.” The multi-roaster cafe showcases Little Wolf beans and supplements with coffee from companies like Saint Frank, Sey, Market Lane, and Luminous. To eat, Coffee MCO offers daily brunch, including a Korean-style braised brisket breakfast burrito co-starring spicy house-made salsa. The stylish space features neon “Coffee” signage, framed album covers from artists like Dr. Dre and the Gorillaz, a spacious patio, and mezzanine with bucket seats that look down on the action.
