I posted about Press Coffee last week and now that I’ve had a chance to visit I wanted to share some details. It’s located at CityNorth just to the east of where Desert Ridge is located. Take 56th St. north and it’s just north of the 101.
I sat down with owner / operator Steve Kraus for a few minutes and asked a few questions. They just opened last week and are already having days with 300+ customers (keep in mind this includes Holiday shoppers). One interesting things I learned was that they hope to help build the coffee scene in AZ. One way they want to do this is through friendly latte art competitions.
I took tons of photos while visiting Press Coffee. I’ve included a batch below or you can view more on Flickr.
Photo of the espresso machine. I understand they have a second unit on the way (or a replacement).
They use Monin syrups.

Cappuccino — good espresso, a bit too much foam.
Shot of the prep area.
Check out the huge patio. Could be a great place to hang out on summer nights.

Nice meeting place.
Mokarabia and Espresso Grand Aroma are served in bar drinks and rebranded coffee from Ground Control is sold whole bean.
