Cafecito Organico is opening up shop in Costa Mesa.
The coffee shop, which holds philosophies in authenticity, recycling and earth-grown goods, opens Saturday at the Lab.
"We're very excited to be at the Lab, a sort of landmark in Costa Mesa," said cafe co-owner Angel Orozco. "Our concept fits really well in terms of developing this site. We're looking forward to meeting the community and bringing good coffee to the city."
Cafecito Organico grows all its beans without chemicals and roasts them in a "green" coffee roaster that was designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption by up to 80%.
The company also prides itself on affordability, with many drinks costing no more than $4.
Cafecito Organico's specialty drinks — the Cafecito and Global Warming — are $5.
The business also believes in a zero-waste concept, using items like biodegradable soap.
Cafecito Organico, founded in 2004, also has locations in Los Angeles and Malibu. An Anaheim store will open later this year, according to a press release.
The store, at 2930 Bristol St., is next to Blends. It replaces Troy Lee Designs, a motorcycle apparel and gear store that closed earlier this year.
