A.T. Oasis Coffee & Tea: An Ethiopian Coffee Importer in the Middle of Phoenix

There are quite a few good places to grab a cup of coffee in central Phoenix but none quite like A.T. Oasis Coffee and Tea Shop, located just east of 46th Street and Thomas.

The 10-month old shop is owned by Aisha Tedros -- originally from Eritrea, just north of Ethiopia -- and serves coffee, speciality espresso drinks, smoothies, as well as a small selection of food including sandwiches, salads, and a few Africa and Middle Eastern dishes. But more interesting that than is that Tedros also imports green coffee beans directly from Ethiopia and distributes them to several of the Valley's well-known and most respected coffee shops.
