About Idea

Soldadera Coffee innovates the Cold Brew Coffee industry by bringing unique cultural experiences through coffee when there is little innovation and flavors for consumers. We believe cultural experiences are important to be shared with the world. We bring the consumers a taste of Mexico through our Cafe de Olla, a coffee spiced with unique herbs found in Mexico.

What sets us apart from others
Our coffee flavors are not found in the US for Cold Brew
We strive to bring diversity to consumers through great tasting Cold brew
Our overall mission

At Soldadera Coffee we differ from other coffee competitors because we want to give back to the community. We aim to focus specifically on raising awareness of gender inequality in the community through our branding. This allows consumers to not only enjoy a great drink but also sparks interest in helping a cause with ease.


Soldadera Coffee will impact minority women as well as coffee lovers throughout the country. With every purchase of our unique premium cold brew bottles Soldadera Coffee customers will not only enter a new world of flavors but will also become philanthropists.
Soldadera Coffee’s branding and sales are used to bring awareness to minority inequality. by raising awareness through our events and connections. We are the conversation starters through a cup of coffee.
