Mark Wain and Gary Chau, pioneers of L.A.’s third wave coffee movement and owners of Caffe Luxxe, were excited to open their highly coveted coffee and lifestyle brand in Long Beach on December 6th. The new cafe joins the lineup of premiere retailers at Long Beach’s new shopping and lifestyle destination, 2ND & PCH. This will mark the Caffe Luxxe’s 7th location as it enters into its 13th year of business.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the beautiful and family-oriented community in Long Beach, where there’s a true sense of neighborhood,” shares Chau. “We are excited to share a space where family and friends can get together in a social environment, and your barista knows your name and favorite drink.”
Caffe Luxxe roasts all its coffee locally, by hand. It’s a farm-to-cup concept, which means their commitment to serving great coffee begins thousands of miles away at family-owned and operated farms that practice sustainability. By focusing on building great relationships and transparent communication with farmers, Caffe Luxxe can secure better coffee for its customers and better lives for the families that help produce their coffee.
Caffe Luxxe commemorates each opening with an exclusive coffee blend release, and in keeping with tradition, the company will debut their Naples Blend, named for Long Beach’s picturesque waterfront neighborhood, which Caffe Luxxe, takes its inspiration from Italy. A blend of coffees from Brazil and Guatemala, the medium-bodied Naples Blend evokes aromas of toffee, citrus zest and toasted nuts and flavor notes of black tea, cherry cola, and white grape. What makes this blend so special is that it will be exclusively sold at the Long Beach location!
In addition to serving up deliciously handcrafted cups of coffee, the cafe features a variety of fresh pastries, including handmade croissants, scones, and cookies. The cafe’s marketplace is curated with a collection of lifestyle products including the Caffe Luxxe A Casa bath & body-line, freshly roasted bags of Caffe Luxxe coffee, and a number of Wain and Chau’s favorite local provisions perfect for holiday gifting.
Caffe Luxxe’s concept is thoughtfully reflected in the cafe’s design, which incorporates a blend of classic and modern elements. Crisp white walls with dark grey accents paired with marble countertops and vibrant yellow accents welcomes guests into this bright and airy space complete with an outdoor patio perfect for sipping coffee and socializing with friends.
Caffe Luxxe is located at 6420 E. Pacific Coast Highway, Long Beach, CA 90803, and open daily from 7 am to 6 pm. For more information visit www.caffeluxxe.com.
