Cafecito Pura Vida is a family owned Specialty Costa Rican coffee shop, located in Downtown, Los Angeles.

We take pride in serving our customers the best handpicked Costa Rican coffee and homemade empanadas available in Southern California.

Every year we travel to Costa Rica to meet the producers and select their specialty coffees for the year, which are handpicked, hand-sorted, and micro-roasted. Our delicious coffee pairs great with Costa Rican empanadas.

It was our beloved grandmother who taught us to make empanadas [and we feel so blessed!] to be able to share these delicious treats with you. Pura Vida!
