ABOUT THE OWNERS...
Hi, we're the Chaffins, Don and Char.
We moved to St. Johnsville after living for sixteen years in Fairbanks,
Alaska. With family in the area - Gloversville
- coming back to Upstate New York to settle was the best move we have
One thing we did
like about the West Coast and Alaska
was the drive-thru espresso stands found just about everywhere.
Especially popular in Fairbanks, we really enjoyed the convenience of being able to drive up to the
window in the morning on the way to work and take off five minutes later
with a hot, delicious latte or cappuccino.
Not having to worry about finding a place to park, then wasting
precious travel time by rushing in and standing in line was a real bonus
for folks like us who were always in a hurry to get to work.
When we decided to move back
to New York
we quickly realized that there were very few true espresso shops available
locally or even within a twenty-mile radius, never mind a drive-thru
stand. We talked it over and
decided to remedy that situation, and that's how Mohawk Valley Coffee and
Espresso was created. Not only
did we want to continue to have great espresso drinks for ourselves but we
also wanted to bring the drive-thru espresso experience to our new
friends and neighbors.
Mohawk Valley Coffee and
Espresso is a true coffee-lover's haven.
We serve all of the traditional espresso drinks, both hot and cold,
as well as Italian sodas, fruit smoothies and a delicious selection of
Chai and Stash teas and regular fresh-brewed coffee.
We also serve assorted pastries, biscotti, and a variety of muffins. And for a very
special treat we sell chocolate-covered coffee beans.
We hope you'll come and see
for yourself how easy and delicious a quick trip through our open window
