Our Story


Café Con Leche, RDU, now known as ¡Espressate! started in 2022, as

a therapeutic hobby to cope with the sudden passing of the owner, Iasia’s, father.


At Espressate, coffee is more than just a drink; it’s a journey of connection, culture, and comfort. Our story began in the heart of Durham, NC, born out of a deep love for exceptional coffee, culture and a desire to bring people together.


Iasia, the passionate founder of Espressate, found solace in coffee during one of the most challenging times of her life. After losing

her father, she turned to coffee as a way to reconnect with

cherished memories of enjoying Café Con Leche with her grandparents and father, and to find light in the darkness of grief. The routine of using a cafetera to brew espresso felt nostalgic and reminded her of waking up to the aroma of espresso.

That became a source of comfort and inspiration, ultimately

leading to the creation of Espressate.


Partnered with Little Waves, an award-winning local roaster, Espressate brings the finest, freshly roasted coffee to events across the Triangle area. Our mobile coffee cart is designed to transform any gathering into a memorable experience, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere where guests can enjoy premium coffee and create lasting connections.


Whether it’s a wedding, corporate event, or community gathering, Espressate is there to elevate the moment. We believe in the power

of coffee to bring people together, foster joy, and create

unforgettable memories.


Join us on this journey, and let’s make

every cup a celebration of life, love, and connection.
