La Prima Espresso's Second Location on Campus is Now Open!

Experience La Prima Espresso Company's second campus dining location in Rohr Café on the third floor of the Gates-Hillman. Founded in 1988, La Prima Espresso Co. is Pittsburgh’s only certified organic coffee roaster. In addition to the Carnegie Mellon University locations, La Prima operates a roaster and wholesale operation in Manchester, a neighborhood on the North Side, and retail locations in the Strip District and Downtown Pittsburgh.

La Prima has been a staple of Carnegie Mellon University dining for 30 years at the Wean Hall location, serving exceptional Italian-style coffee and espresso. Patrons can enjoy their signature fair-trade, organic blend, iced coffee on tap, nitro coffee, and a frothy and bubbly cold-brew, paired with a variety of baked goods, grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, and sides sourced from La Prima’s local vendor partnerships - Mediterra Bakehouse, Common Plea Catering and Community Kitchen.

"Dining Services is committed to elevating the campus dining experience and partnering with local businesses in the Pittsburgh region," shares Joe Beaman, CMU's Director of Dining Services. "We are thrilled to have a second La Prima Espresso on campus, a partner who consistently delivers extraordinary quality and customer service while meeting the ever-changing needs of the CMU community."
