Imperial is Miami’s original Moto-inspired Café, Specialty Coffee Roaster, and Lifestyle Brand.
Founded by Miami Entrepreneur Matt McKenna in 2016. His passion for vintage motorcycles inspired him to design the perfect meet-up spot for fellow aficionados. Imperial Moto first debuted as a lifestyle brand, and custom motorcycle builder in 2016, and a café in Miami’s Little River neighborhood in 2017. Signature coffee became a top priority once the Imperial Moto Café concept was established. The company’s tagline being “Elevate your coffee experience” in a mantra of the brand. Imperial Moto’s first specialty coffee release has been aptly titled the Café Racer Blend to pay tribute to the style of motorcycle that filed the love affair between caffeine and gasoline.
“Our coffee is one of a kind because we roast a proprietary blend of Ethiopian and Brazilian beans from fair trade and sustainable farms, and went a step further recently when we decided to roast our coffee locally in Miami. We don’t just sell coffee, but also have an extensive retail capsule, from lifestyle apparel to home goods, most is made in the states, that’s important for us.” - Said Matt McKenna.
Summer of 2022 Imperial opened its second location at the Aventura Mall. Here it has recreated its original home and is able to share our values and coffee experience with a much larger demographic.________________________________________________________
