Talk about coffee pride.
Press Coffee has broken ground on a new flagship roastery and cafe just south of Shea Boulevard on 32nd Street in northeast Phoenix.
An abandoned KFC restaurant was demolished to make room for the new, 5,600-square-foot roastery, slated to open next April.
The new industrial-chic roastery will feature a 1,500-square-feet cafe with a patio, and an exhibition roasting room complete with a second-story observation deck.
True to Press Coffee’s roots, community education, from cupping classes to tastings, will be central in the new operation.
