Amazon Juices in Capitola was created by Joao Frota from Cafe Brasil and Amazon Juices UCSC in Santa Cruz, with his partner Natasha, a former employee of Cafe Brazil.
After coming from Brazil 38 years ago, visiting Hawaii and other places, Joao Luis Frota and his wife Claudia decided stay in Santa Cruz, California. The Pacific Ocean, the beautiful and charming city, redwoods, beaches, and the people from Santa Cruz made it a great place to start a family.
After 34 years in the restaurant business, starting with a breakfast place, he fully set Cafe Brazil as a typical Santa Cruz breakfast option, and expanded into Amazon Juices in Capitola, as well as offering Juices and bowl in two location inside the University of Santa Cruz.
Amazon Juices in Capitola was a natural extension of Cafe Brazil into a more casual offering of nutritious juices and meals in a most convenient location.
The focus always have been to offer nutritious, healthy and fresh meals with a Brazilian touch.
