Rescate Coffee is Elk Grove's only on-site coffee roaster, with coffee roasted three times a week for freshness. Their shop is beautiful with a farmhouse decor vibe and they often decorate for the seasons and holidays.
Rescate is the Spanish word for rescue. The name has a double meaning for the owners: First, by coming to the rescue of their patrons with delicious coffee, and second, for their commitment to rescue animals.
Rescate Coffee has an extensive menu of coffee, teas, and food items. One of the most unique things about Rescate is how they inject Mexican culture into their menu. Their signature coffee is El Toro which is sweetened espresso breve with a dash of cinnamon. Other specialty drinks include Horchata latte (house-made horchata with real Mexican vanilla and cinnamon), Mayan Mocha which has habanero, and Honey Bear latte with local Spease's Bees honey. In addition, Rescate has a seasonal menu with items such as Orange or Cherry Creme Frappe in the summer and Country Pumpkin Latte in the fall.
Rescate is passionate about rescue animals and donates a portion of the proceeds from select retail products to pet rescue organizations. There's an entire wall dedicated to pictures of rescue pets. For a donation to local pet rescue organizations, the name of your pet will be hand-stamped on the Rescatado wall. Rescate also helps out the two-legged population by offering a space for support groups to meet, participating in food drives for the food bank, collecting water to donate to fire victims, and currently, they are collecting school supplies for children in need.
