I am italian from Rome. I moved in Las Vegas 4 months ago. I looked for a good coffee everywhere I visited but I found just a burned or watered fake espresso. This place is incredible they toast the coffee by ourselves and they know how to use an espresso machine. Right size, right temperature , foam and the taste... More

Being from Melbourne (and therefore coffee snobs) we were a bit cynical of the reviews raving about the coffee in this place that, to be honest, is kinda in the middle of nowhere. But, we were on our way to Yosemite and needed our fix. Wow! They roast their own coffee and clearly know what they're doing. The standard coffees... More

We were visiting Yosemite and this place was recommended by a local so we figured it would be good and it was excellent. You could see this was a very eco-friendly place as you might expect outside a National Park in CA. The owners were working there. They don't just talk the talk, they also walk the walk. You could...

Thank you for the warm greeting when we stopped in for coffee on our way home from Yosemite. The coffee was bold in flavor with no bitterness!!! Awesome coffee and the beans we bought are by far the best we have had in a very long time (since Hawaii trip). Thank you very much for the conversation and friendly atmosphere.... More

My husband, teenage son and I stopped here on our way to Yosemite. Conveniently located at the NW corner where the two highways in Mariposa cross. Loved the cozy couches and books on Yosemite. You can tell the owner(s) really care about their guests here. Coffee was a hit. Will return if we ever come through here again. Thanks, Pony!

After spending day in Yosemite, I needed a pick-me-up to complete drive to Sonora. Pony Expresso to the rescue! Great coffee roasted on premises. Bought a bag to take home to hubby who couldn't make the trip with me.
