Coffee from Honduras, Brazil and Colombia sure sounds great in the morning. The Mambo Café, which is set to open Feb 28 in Pleasantville, just west of Atlantic City, will offer all that plus more. Marin’s goal is to offer the best coffee and food in his area and also to reduce the caffeine in coffee and make it serve more of a casual drink.

PLEASANTVILLE — A love for cooking and the absence of fresh coffee in his morning routine drove Jose Marin to fill a vacant storefront with a new cafe.

“I got tired of the pre-made coffee,” he said. “You need people to see a nice atmosphere.”

Marin, an Atlantic City resident who also owns La Cosecha, a supermarket on South Main Street, is part of a small but vital contingent of Hispanic business owners in the Pleasantville area.

According to U.S. Census statistics, the number of Hispanic-owned businesses in Atlantic County increased 17 percent between 2002 and 2007. More recent figures are not yet available.
