The newest coffee shop on the block is Press Coffee Roasters. It is the second store by the team at Press Coffee, who opened their first shop just 2 years ago at CityNorth. It opened on Friday, November 19.
The new shop signage at Scottsdale Quarter.
Grand Opening celebrations are planned for Black Friday, November 26, but until then the shop is open and has a limited supply of food items (full coffee bar is open).

The shop is easy to find. Just park in the south parking garage and as you exit the parking area turn north and it will be across the street on your right hand side. It’s about 200 ft from the Apple store.
My enthusiasm is high for this shop, for a number of reasons:
- It’s five minutes from my house! I have waited years to have a coffee shop within spitting distance. I’ve envied friends who lived next door to a great coffee shop, and now it’s my turn! I’ll probably be over here frequently.
- It’s Press Coffee — and they’ve been both an advocate for coffee culture in the valley, and proven that a coffee shop can be successful in the north valley.
- They roast their own coffee — and it’s delicious and consistent.
Yeah, I probably sound like a walking advertisement, but it’s warranted. Because they serve excellent coffee, and understand the craft.
