Patria was started by Geoffry and Deanna Martinez as a small coffee roaster from their Compton home. In 2018 they opened their first coffee shop near the Compton Courthouse, creating a community space that hires locals from the community, which naturally, means people of color. The Martinezes source their coffees directly from farms and all of their coffees are organic. At the shop you’ll see art from local artists which is part of Patria’s project to open the space to the community. They regularly give space to BIPOC youth to discuss culture and politics, and host film screenings about the Central American experience. Occasionally, Patria invites pop-ups to set up in front of their store so that customers can enjoy food with their Oat milk slushy and Mexican mochas.

This highly personal roastery and cafe next to Wilson Park touts twin counters, a shared wood table, and photos on the walls, which during our visit depicted Maya Women in LA. Owners Deanna and Geoffrey Martinez clearly stand for more than just what’s in their cups. A heartfelt sign on the wall reads, “First and foremost, we acknowledge our position as guests on occupied Tongva land. Patria Coffee is a space intended for Communities of Color to share a safe place.” The message finishes by saying, “The most beautiful coffee is grown by Black and Brown hands. We aim to honor their labor by presenting it to you the best that we can.” They represent the farmers well in espresso drinks, filter coffee, and cold brew. They even offer a signature drink that speaks to the community: cafe de olla featuring cold brew and syrup crafted with cane sugar, cinnamon and cardamom.
