Hand crafted with love. Made with pride.
At only 16 years of age, Erika Knoch knew she would one day own her own coffee shop, and she was right! Today she owns and operates Global Coffee in El Paso, one of our newest roasters at Texas Coffee Club.
When you speak with Erika, you quickly realize that she and the coffee world are a natural fit. Volunteering at her church’s café was her intro to the coffee world, and the experience shaped her future. She loved everything involved with it: the people, serving, and good coffee. She knew a coffee shop was in her future.
Later, as she learned just what running a specialty coffee shop entailed, she found there was even more to love. All the pieces of the coffee supply chain were amazing. From the farmers and coffee processes they used, to importers, to the roasters, to baristas, and finally into the hands of the customers. All of it was fascinating and led her to also roasting her own coffee.
A Global Perspective
Erika says Global is the perfect name for her shop, and really represents what her shop is about. Global is perfect since it means universal, and we all know coffee is a universal commodity. Coffee is also a universal way of sharing with each other, no matter where we’re from.
On top of all that, Erika incorporates different kinds of coffee from different parts of the world where coffee is grown. It all fit together to make Global Coffee the right fit for this owner’s store.
Bagged Freshly Roasted Coffees
As you may have guessed, Global Coffee offers bags of their freshly roasted coffee beans for your own home brews. True to their Global name, they offer single origins from Ethiopia, Mexico, and Guatemala plus a couple of blends to boot. Flavors range from bold and chocolatey to tropical and fruity. There’s a little something for most everyone.
Customer Experience Comes First
Global Coffee takes great pride in their craft and wants every customer experience to be a great experience. Erika trains the team herself in all aspects of the business: from customer service, to making syrups, to being a barista, and making the bags of coffee. Social media and google reviews are buzzing about the wonderful customer service, owner involvement, delightful coffee drinks, and delicious bagged coffees.
In the shop they offer specialty drinks such as their signature Global Coffee and a Mazapan Latte that’s made with real Mazapan candy. Perfect for enjoying on their outdoor patio with a fresh pastry.
It’s not just social media and google that’s taking notice of Global Coffee. The El Paso Times listed them as one of the 8 El Paso Coffee Shops you need to know about.
Also El Paso Inc., has written about them twice. Most recently they named Global Coffee as the #3 2020 Best of El Paso Coffee / Tea Shop. And in 2018, Erika and Global Coffee were featured in the City Magazine – El Paso. Great job!
