Location Description:

There’s a reason why café aficionados are so particular about their cup of Joe, and no, it’s not Starbucks. In order to get the optimum shot of espresso, you need good beans, a quality machine, and a skilled barista. The boys behind Scottsdale Quarter’s Press Coffee Roasters have the process down to a science (with the help of a top-of-the-line Synesso machine), resulting in a perfectly balanced earthy shot of espresso with hints of fruit and chocolate and a slightly smoky finish. The beans are roasted in-house, and java junkies are invited to take a tour of the roasting facility to watch the magic happen or attend a coffee cupping to taste what the buzz is all about. Press Coffee Roasters are so serious about their trade that they offer at-home brewing guides for a variety of gadgets, including French press and siphon. In addition to the Scottsdale home base, Press Coffee operates a roastery in South Phoenix and a café and wine bar in Sky Harbor International Airport.
