Our Story

From the squad that brought you Tahini – San Diego’s Middle Eastern street food spot comes Finjan Coffee Co.

SD’s first specialty Middle Eastern coffee shop.

Finjan, meaning coffee cup in Arabic...

is our way of paying homage to our roots while indulging in the fuel behind Tahini’s success. In fact, you could say Finjan is really just our way of fueling our own caffeine addiction. So much so that we decided to share.

Using locally roasted James Coffee Co. beans we plan to stick to specialty coffee’s roots – espresso from coffee ground fresh to order – while bringing our own unique touch by serving classic Arabic and Turkish coffee brewed in a hot sand pit alongside traditional Middle Eastern teas.

We pair our coffee with traditional Arabic sweets like Knafeh and Baklawa while staying true to our Tahini brand - by making them in house, from scratch. We are excited about this next chapter in our story and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Much Love, Moody and Osama
