Our Story

Java Pura Logotype

Born from a partnership

Richard T. Colt

Born in Houston, Richard is not new to the Houston coffee scene. Starting in 1992 with a number of coffee kiosks located Downtown, University of Houston, the Galleria and Saks Pavillion, Richard formed Texas Java Company and has provided coffee catering to Houston ever since. Understanding that coffee excellence could be expanded by roasting his own coffee, Richard pitched the concept to his high school friend, Fielding L. Cocke and Java Pura was formed.

Fielding L. Cocke

Also a native Houstonian, and long-time coffee aficionado, Fielding has often proclaimed that he was the first person at University of Texas to buy a Krups coffee maker in early 1973. A wine collector and taster, Fielding uses his talents to help the Master Roaster cup their samples. Both Richard and Fielding have a deep passion for their coffee and employ every means possible in bringing Houston the very finest coffee available.
