Barry Collins wrote to let us know about Roadrunner Coffee Co. in Tucson. I believe we’ve covered them in the past, but maybe not. They have two locations in the NW Tucson area.

Roadrunner Coffee Co
8245 N Silverbell Rd.
Tucson, AZ 85743
Phone: (520) 572-9011

Roadrunner Coffee Co II (Drive Thru)
9665 N Thornydale Rd.

Barry says “these guys have great coffee, frappes, wraps and now serve gelato at both locations.” Thanks Barry.

    Barry owns Roadrunner Coffee Co.

    …of course he would say that.

    Been there a few times wasn’t impressed at all. Espresso very watery and no creama.

    The best coffee in Tucson, go all the time. Espresso very smooth not bitter like so many others. Plus they do a lot for the community artist and school fundraisers and local churches. Great Place!

  4. I’ve had Jason’s espresso, and trust his judgment. I applaud their community contributions, but in the end they’re a coffee shop. If they’re not getting decent crema on their shots, it’s a strong indication that they’ve failed at their basic [i]raison d’etre[/i].
    It’s a bit of a jaunt, but I’ll go check ’em out .

    These comments are just a bit off. I don’t think the JC ever when to Roadrunner coffee. I have gone since it opened in 2004. Good creama and some of the best shots I have seen. The espresso is strong and smooth. 2 shots in a tall 12oz. Wrong shop JC, also Pugsley the owner should think his coffee is good. thats why they are still in busy!! A must for really good coffee. Employees are wonderful and so friendly.

    I don’t know about the coffee but the owner is unethical. He ordered the signs for the Thornydale store then refused to pay for them after they were installed. Please boycott this store that cheats other Tucson small businesses.

  9. Chris Davis

    Why hasn’t the owner paid the maker of his sign? We will go viral until Jason is paid his money for making the neon sign. This is unethical business practices.

    I received a judgement of $35,584.00 against Roadrunner Coffee Company Inc., (Barry and Candace Collins) for breach of contract in May of 2008 Superior Court Tucson AZ. (Case No.20077043) I am a 64 year old woman and have not received a penny of that judgement.
    I also was awarded judgement of $39,208.00 on June 2009 for breach of contract (Case No. 20087182) against Lindsey Collins. I have not received a penny of that money.
    I believe this information speaks for itself.
