New Downtown Coffee Shop Will Feature Community-Traded Coffee from Rwanda

For the culturally-conscious coffee sipping types, a new shop coming to downtown Phoenix in September promises to mix the java with the justice -- specifically for coffee farmers in Rwanda.

Set to open at 6 a.m., Tuesday, September 4, Eighth Day Coffee & Culture, located at 828 North 2nd Street (nearby FilmBar), will be brewing up 100% arabica, community-traded coffee from Rwanda, Haiti and Thailand.
