About Talia Espresso

Jim and Kathy Kozak are owners and operators of Talia Espresso Main St. and Talia Espresso Drive thru.  Since 2005 the Kozaks have been pushing toward excellence in the coffee service industry as well as fresh sustainable foods.

Talia Espresso is a bistro style coffee house featuring gourmet lattes, espresso, cappuccinos, smoothies and more delicious hot and cold beverages along with fresh homemade lunch options such as chicken salad croissants, spanikopita, quiche, fresh homemade bread, and salad dressings as well as seasonal options including gazpacho, strawberry summer salads and, when available, farm-to-table options from local growers.

Talia Drive Thru

In 2012 The Kozak's opened Talia Espresso Drive Thru in Wilkesboro, NC.  with the continued promise of excellent espresso, cappuccinos, coffee and more in a convenient drive thru location.  Jim and Kathy know that without a deep faith in Jesus Christ an amazing family and many friends, this vision would not come to pass.  With hard work, dedication and passion of prayer this has been the driving force in their business.


In the fall of 2017 Talia Espresso expanded into the Student Center of the WCC.  We love serving the staff, students and guest of WCC  Mon-Fri       8am-1pm.
