Rancho Cucamonga - Route 66
Rancho Cucamonga Location
In 2018 Klatch Coffee reached the 25 year milestone. Our Rancho Cucamonga location is where the journey began. Located on the Historic Route 66 in the also historic Thomas Winery Plaza. Klatch Coffee now stands where the Route 66 museum once stood. Originally we called it Coffee Klatch. We quickly became a community hotspot. Local bands on the patio, Mexican Mochas (a favorite made with Ibarra Chocolate), the whole nine yards.
Mike and Cindy initially dreamt of a $1,000 per day in sales but it soon grew to much more. Mike was (and is) on an endless search for better coffee; buying from 6 different roasters in 1993 (we were the original multi-roaster coffee house). He spent his long days at UC Riverside working on getting his degree and with longer nights behind the espresso machine. Let’s not forget of course the Perry's two little girls where also a part of this location's history, one of which was always sneaking behind the bar and trying to make drinks; yes that would be Heather.
