Tierra Mia Coffee Company is a specialty coffee retailer that operates three stores in Southern California, United States. The company opened its first coffeehouse in March 2008 in the city of South Gate at the intersection of Firestone Boulevard and Atlantic Boulevard. In March 2010, Tierra Mia Coffee opened its second location in the city of Huntington Park, within the historic Pacific Boulevard commercial district. The Pacific Boulevard commercial district is the third highest grossing commercial district in the County of Los Angeles.[1] In July 2010 the company opened its third location adjacent to city hall in the city of Santa Fe Springs.

Tierra Mia Coffee's mission is to "provide the highest quality Latin-inspired coffee, beverages, and pastries in a setting that is comfortable, contemporary, and highly reflective of Latin American culture." [2].

Pulitzer Prize winning food critic Jonathan Gold of the LA Weekly wrote about Tierra Mia Coffee in August 2008, and described the company as a "third wave coffee" concept that offered "the world's best beans." [3] Tierra Mia Coffee has also been profiled in the Los Angeles Times,[4] La Opinión[5] and Al Borde [6], and has appeared on television newscasts of Univision[7] and Telemundo[8]. In September 2008, Tierra Mia Coffee held an opening event that was attended and keynoted by California State Controller John Chiang.[9]



Tierra Mia Coffee makes its espresso utilizing naked portafilters and creates beverages with latte art. The company also sells original creations such as the Mocha Mexicano, Horchata Latte and Mojito Lemonade. It uses La Marzocco espresso equipment to create its drinks.[10]


Tierra Mia Coffee was founded by Ulysses Romero and funded by a group of private investors. Ulysses Romero holds an MBA from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business and a bachelor's degree from Berkeley's Haas School of Business.[11] He previously worked at Kean Coffee a concept started by coffee luminary Martin Diedrich, founder of Diedrich Coffee, one of the first coffeehouse chains in Orange County, California.
