It’s a month of bad news, and now more: Inza Coffee is closing. The last day of operations will be this Friday, June 13th. They are also closing every day at 4 pm; earlier than normal.
This news was passed along to me from Ron Cortez, owner of Cortez Coffee Company, the roaster for Inza. Ron tells me that Inza is “planning to have the last day this Friday.” He says that “Cortez is going to donate the coffee and all the employees will share the ‘tip jar’. The idea is to have a day to say goodbye to all there loyal customers.”
I understand that most items will be discounted and so tip heavily and go this week to say goodbye to the coffee shop we all love. I’m sure we’ll see Linda, Wilson, Austin, Carlos, CJ, Brittne, Baltazar, Jessica, Johann — and anyone else I may have missed — again. They’re a great group of people and I wish them all the best. One of the things I’ve learned in life is that change is good. See you on Friday.
Update: Inza Coffee responded to my email and wrote: “Thank you for your support! Thanks for everything! Thank you ARIZONA! Good Bye!”
Update 2: Prices discounted on Friday by 50%.
