Heather Zwirn & Carol Pivonka

Sterling's Best Coffee Makers



How it Began

Hot Java was started in December of 1996 when Heather Zwirn wanted to share her love of espresso drinks with her home town where she grew up. She always had a love for coffee and was introduced to espresso drinks while in college. With the support of her parents, she opened her initial location across from the Sterling Post Office, offering a limited menu and only walk in service

Twenty plus years and three locations later, Hot Java has morphed into the current location. This location has been built from the ground up and streamlined into an efficient retail business, offering coffee, bagels, sandwiches and much more. Hot Java's goal is to serve high quality drinks and food, custom made for each customer as quickly as possible without sacrificing customer service.


Hot Java is absolutely amazing! The staff are wonderful, extremely polite and are very quick to get your order filled. My absolute favorite is their Turtle Brownies and White Rabbit frappuccinos, with some extra caramel. :) It's great! If you haven't tried them yet, you're definitely missing out.

I love the Cinnamon Toast Crunch iced coffee here. It’s the best! The staff is always friendly when I come through and quick as well!

Bonnetta Thomas
This place may be busy a lot but it's always worth the wait. Breakfast sandwiches are delicious and I love to get their smoothies. The Italian sodas are good too. I'm sure everything is good, but that's what I normally get. Husband likes to get the coffee drinks here and never has a complaint.

Colton Kruse
We come here a few times a week for coffee and sometimes food. We have never had a bad coffee which is amazing. Great service, great prices we love it.

Essie Long
This is the best coffee I have had in a long time. My husband is super picky when it comes to coffee, I run a coffee shop so unless I make it he’s usually not super satisfied. The baristas here made his drink perfectly! We were both very impressed!
