TAMPA – Since 1921, Navier A has been a classic for cafe con leche.
It’s named for the shipping line that brought founder Carlos Menendez to the U.S.
In 1921, Carlos Menendez, a Spanish immigrant, founded the Naviera Coffee Mills, named for the shipping lines that brought him to America. Working in a cigar factory by day, he roasted the coffee at night and delivered his fresh roasted blends door-to-door by bicycle each morning.
Today, four generations later, Naviera Coffee Mills is still family owned and operated.
