About Us

We started our humble beginnings in 1999 with hopes of bringing good and fast coffee to UC San Diego. In time, the Art of Espresso transformed the space outside Mandeville into a sticky spot where students, faculty, and staff can meet, relax, or study.

Our Space

Come grab a drink and sit under the sunny La Jolla sky. We have have plenty of seating for you to catch up with your friends, hold office hours, or to just enjoy your cup of joe.

Our Coffee

Our beans are provided by Birdrock Coffee Roasters. We take pride in serving Direct Trade coffee so every cup you drink directly benefits coffee farmers.
