Mountain View Coffee Co. is aptly named, as it sits off the main roads in Fountain Hills, surrounded by mountains. It's out of the way for anybody who doesn't live in Fountain Hills, Scottsdale, or northeast Phoenix, but true java heads may be willing to make the journey for Mountain View's brews.
Mountain View Coffee Co.'s house blend is a heady and strong roast, but with almost no oils or bitterness. There's a hint of bitterness, but nothing like you'd get from espresso. The house blend is smooth and even, starting with a rich coffee bean taste that tapers into a slight, sweet, syrupy aftertaste. Served iced, it's doubly delicious, and we got to the bottom of our cup before we knew it.
