Psyd (from Tucson) reminded me about some photos he took at Vida e Caffe in Globe awhile back and just sent them to me again. He’s also included a few comments which I’ve republished below the photos. Thanks, Psyd!
The view from the main door.
“Backstage” view of espresso machine and grinder.
It was a warm and welcoming environment, and the staff were helpful, the drinks were great, and the place was a great stop on the way to the ski-lifts. So good that we did it again on the way back.
Unfortunately, I’ve forgotten all of the names of all of the people that I met, but it was the sister and the father of one of our own, Austin, as well as the girl in the photo. I knew all of their names by the time I was out of there a second time.
The place has that unique Southern Arizona Antique feel to it. Something that has the aged qualities of a piece of history, but not the fragility that is associated with that. Kinda like the Hotel Congress down in Tucson, or the old buildings in Bisbee or Tombstone (well, the ones that aren’t touristified, anyway).
All in all, it’s an oasis of great service and coffee in the wilderness of old mining country. Right off the highway, there is no excuse for not stopping in if you’re in the neighborhood.
