Echo Coffee

There are several great options for coffee in the Valley, and in Scottsdale, Echo Coffee is among the very best. The coffeehouse prides itself on serving only organic beverages and food items, and its beans are roasted in-house. And they love to talk about those beans, too. If you want to take freshly roasted coffee to-go, ask the barista for a recommendation. They'll tell you that the Titus is a pleasing blend balanced between acidity and sweetness with a slight chocolate note, or that the single-origin El Salvador Bourbon is the best pick for espresso because it has a round, complete, complex flavor profile with thick, sweet crema and a bit of brightness. At Echo, coffee is meant to be savored, providing a brief moment of peace in an otherwise busy day. That philosophy is built into the café's sweetest offering: a free organic shortbread cookie whenever a drink is ordered "for here." Read our review.
