Are you yearning for a high-quality cup of coffee in Fontana? If so, you’re in luck. On December 15th, Klatch Coffee opened its first drive-thru on the outskirts of the city.
While Klatch Coffee has been in business for 25 years, the Fontana drive-thru is the company’s first foray into grab-and-go coffee.
Klatch Coffee bills itself as “the best roaster in the world.” That’s not just an idle boast. Their products have won accolades around the world, including Micro Roaster of the Year and Best Espresso in the World. They pride themselves on sourcing the best coffee beans and preparing them using their signature “Peak of Flavor” roasting technique to extract the best possible flavor from their coffee.
Klatch is a family company based in Rancho Cucamonga. Run by the Perry family, it’s truly a local business gone global. Mike Perry is the chief buyer, Cindy Perry handles the finances as CFO, and their daughters Heather and Holly serve as VP of Training and Consulting and Retail Director, respectively.
A High Traffic Area
The new Klatch Coffee store with its convenient drive-thru is located at 3840 Sierra Avenue just off the 15 Freeway. That makes it ideally situated to capture traffic traveling to and from the Glen Helen Amphitheater, Lytle Creek, and Las Vegas.
Of course, it’s expected that some area residents will make a special trip to try Klatch’s famous coffee for themselves. It’s close enough to the city to make such excursions possible and may prove to be a destination for coffee lovers in and around Fontana.
Coffee Beverages and a Select Food Menu
While Klatch Coffee’s main product is coffee beans, visitors to the new drive-thru can expect to find some complementary menu items to go with their java. Both hot and cold beverages are available, and you can expect to find the usual lattes, cappuccinos, and Americanos, along with cold brew, nitro, and other high-end options.
The breakfast menu includes some portable sandwiches designed to partner with Klatch’s coffee creations, including avocado toast, goat cheese toast with honey, and Nutella toast with strawberries. At lunchtime, they’ll serve panini and cold sandwiches to their customers.
Other Locations in Southern California
The Klatch Coffee drive-thru is designed for convenience, but if you visit one of their other locations, you can participate in a coffee tasting and learn more about their unique roasting methods. Their other locations are in Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, Redondo Beach, San Dimas, and at Los Angeles International Airport
Attending a tasting is a good way to take your coffee knowledge to a new level. Klatch’s collection of single-origin coffee beans are in education in themselves. A coffee tasting is like a wine tasting with the kick of caffeine – something that may be worth the trip if you consider yourself a coffee connoisseur.
The new Klatch Coffee drive-thru in Fontana offers residents and tourists the opportunity to sample some of the best coffee the world has to offer even when they’re in a hurry. In addition to coffee, they have a limited selection of tea and other drinks, so there’s sure to be something that will appeal to you.
