Best Coffee House, West Valley - 2010
The Bad Ass Coffee Co. - CLOSED
This really is some badass coffee they are brewing up in Surprise, using 100 percent Kona coffee beans grown on Hawaiian volcanoes. It's a cozy shop with an aroma that will please any coffee connoisseur's taste buds.The store's name, so the legend goes, comes from the bellowing donkeys (a.k.a. asses) that hauled the delicious coffee beans down the mountainsides. The gourmet coffee shop adopted its name in honor of the asses' badass work ethic.You won't find donkeys — or asses — at this shop, just friendly customer service and a delicious selection of coffee blends served hot or cold, at the counter or at a convenient drive-thru. Most of their specialty drinks can be made sugar-free, including a rich, blended caramel vanilla latte or the Snickerlicious, a concoction of dark chocolate, hazelnut, and caramel.
