Three Favorite Shots of Espresso in Metro Phoenix

Page 3 of 4

Press Coffee Roasters - North Scottsdale Very early on last year Press opened their second location at the Scottsdale Quarter (the first is at City North), the now thriving home to luxury shopping, dining, and everything else. Very quickly, Press was offering the best coffee in Scottsdale.

Their espresso is no exception. What started out as a blend with simple flavors has now evolved to shots that are often fruity and complex. Currently their espresso is a blend of two Brazilians - one sweet, one fruity, both down to Earth with a darker set of flavors, and ends with semi-sweet chocolate syrup on the palate. This balanced blend makes for a sturdy shot that stays consistent with many of their baristas, and which compliments milk quite well. Take a stroll through the fountains of the Scottsdale Quarter, or into the Apple store just across the street and you'll see how cherished Press is to the locals.
