The Cafe Moto concept began in 1989-1990 when my folks wanted to sell Italian motor bikes over there, espresso equipment here with the fresh coffee in the middle.  Since we began roasting in San Diego in 1968,  we remain family and community focused, second-generation owners Torrey and Kim Lee incorporated Cafe Moto in 1998. With an ever-increasing demand for tea and coffee beverages, Cafe Moto provides an educational arena to teach and guide the burgeoning market, in addition to producing wonderful coffees and teas. Our sample kitchen has hosted a range of students from head chefs and first line baristas, to ex-bankers and tile workers. Our goal remains simple; provide a forum where small businesses can design a coffee bar menu according to taste preferences. This, we believe, will help to promote confidence to the conscientious customer.

Our Company has grown to include offsite tasting, samplings, and demonstrations. Our service crew is on call throughout the city to repair those pesky espresso machine concerns. The sales team lets the product do the talking. We roast coffee in small batches, 4-5 days per week, promoting freshness and quality. We personally deliver our products to local cafes and restaurants, while UPS helps us distribute across the country. Our website allows customers to shop, learn and explore. Cafe Moto’s team of passionate individuals is focused on one simple goal: Customer success and satisfaction with our tea and coffee products.

Our slogan remains, ” We drink all we can, the rest we sell”!

Enjoy, Torrey and Kimberly Lee
