Homegrown Coffee is Expanding: Tonyan Coffee Roasters prove local businesses thrive despite adversity

By Staff Reports

(Victorville) – Whether it’s a warm, locally-brewed coffee, peppermint mocha, or the only nitro-infused ice cream in the High Desert, locals now have one more reason to celebrate winter weather and shop local: Tonyan Coffee Roasters has a second location on Bear Valley Rd. in Victorville.

The homegrown, fair trade company has been a staple in Apple Valley’s village for more than nine years, serving up unique, organic, locally roasted coffee and one-of-a-kind treats for faithful java fans.

Despite the challenges of a pandemic, they took the leap knowing that High Desert residents need their caffeine more than ever.

“Specialty Coffee is a passion of mine and there’s no one I’d rather serve it to than the community I was born and raised in,” said Rachel Tonyan, co-founder and owner of Tonyan Coffee. “Expanding this business to serve more of our community has been a dream and a passion for years, and it’s amazing to finally open our second location and already be supported by so many locals. We are beyond grateful” 

The new location boasts a one-of-a-kind roaster, roasting 70 pounds of fair trade, organic coffee per day. Customers can enjoy fresh brewed coffee, lattés, signature drinks made with handmade organic ingredients and more.  You can also purchase whole beans, ground coffee or jugs of iced coffee mixes to take home.

“The fact that Tonyan Coffee has expanded to Victorville should come as no surprise to anyone who knows the how the business has grown through the years” said Martial Haprov, Chair of the Hesperia Chamber of Commerce. “There are tons of seemingly small, personal, unique touches to the space that add up to a warm, modern environment that could easily fit in Manhattan’s east side.”

“My family and I love the ice cream, and having it that close to the college, where I work is a real treat,” added Chris Nunez, Interim Director of Fund Development and Scholarships at the Victor Valley College Foundation. “I’m so happy to see local business growing in these difficult times.

The new Tonyan Coffee Roasters is located at 17080 Bear Valley Rd., suite D5 in Victorville and is open from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily.

Their original location still offers organic pastries, freshly roasted coffee, gift baskets, fair trade jewelry, home décor, chocolates and more. For more information call (760) 628-4462.
