Larissa Martinez

Truckee Love

Larissa moved to Truckee in 2008 from the little, warm beach town of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California with her then three year old son, Nikolai. Two years later, Luca joined the family as the proud ‘only one in our family born in Truckee’. Larissa’s 18 year career in coffee shops, serving and connecting with locals and visitors alike, allowed her to quickly become a part of the incredible community that is Truckee. In 2011, she started local brand, truckee love., which came about from the natural feeling that she received from her village while raising her two young men. Spending time with her boys and her pet boys, Onyx and Mister Steve Willie Nelson, spending summer afternoons on the Truckee River and enjoying Truckee community traditions with her neighbors are a few of Larissa’s favorite things. You can find Larissa hostessing at Moody’s on the weekends.
