The Carswell Family has resided in San Marcos, Texas for over 48 years. Owner and President, Kevin Carswell has worked in and managed numerous local business establishments including Café on the Square, Lone Star Café and the San Marcos River Pub and Grill. The inspiration for Mochas & Javas came about when Kevin and his family saw the need for a comfortable gathering place, where the community could come together while enjoying extraordinary beverages, food, legendary customer service, and San Marcos catering. Everything done by Mochas & Javas and its team is to this end.
In 2003, along with his brother Kirby, and their wives, Michelle and Kelly, the first two Mochas & Javas San Marcos coffee shops became a reality. One on LBJ and Sessom Dr. near Texas State University, and the other on Wonder World Drive and Hunter Road. Location number 3 opened in 2008 inside of the Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC), followed by location number 4 inside of San Marcos’ biggest and most central HEB. Our original location of thirteen years was moved to an end cap within the same center when a once local bookstore closed its doors after 30 years. This has made way for Mochas & Javas to expand its concept into a coffee shop/café which shares the name of Mochas & Javas as “Café M&J”. Kirby and Kevin had been looking for a location in North Texas, and when an opportunity presented itself, they made the decision to purchase an existing coffee shop/specialty bakery in Frisco, TX. Previously know as Coffee N Cream Coffee Shop/Specialty Bakery, the new Mochas & Javas Frisco coffee shop has been open since August 2017.
Mochas & Javas is dedicated to its contributions to the communities we serve. With the Carswell family’s roots & growth in the very soil that this business was built on, Mochas & Javas is community centric and truly Texas Local. We work to support as many local organizations, schools, events, and partners as possible.
Our mission is to serve the finest quality coffee beverages and food to our guests. We strive to educate our guests on our products so they may make the best choice on their food and beverage selection. We work with local vendors, avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup, and pay close attention to detail, crafting scratch-made products that we are proud to serve. We take every opportunity to stimulate the local economy by purchasing ingredients and retail items from local producers as well as supporting local artists and craftspeople.
The Coffee, Of Course
The owner and founder of TX Coffee Traders, RC Beall, along with Kevin worked together to formulate the Mochas & Javas espresso blend that has been served for almost fifteen years. The Mochas & Javas blend along with our light roast of the month are roasted weekly for us in Austin, TX at Texas Coffee Traders. This ensures our coffee is always as fresh as possible while supporting a local business that cares about fairly sourced resources.
