I had the pleasure of visiting 6th Street Cafe in Tucson. It is a coffee shop and custard shop that has been open a little bit less than a year. They’re right next to the University of Arizona campus, and have free wireless internet. Bill Gray, the manager, is trying to re-create the italian style espresso bar using latte art techniques, and combining the concept with frozen custard (Freddezza). Bill has 12 years specialty coffee experience, is a member of SCAA, and taught espresso extracting at the 2000 SCAA conference in Philadelphia. Thanks Bill, for the opportunity to visit your shop.

The outside of the shop, which is inside of a larger building. Bill Gray prepares a drink. Cups on top of the espresso machine. The 6th Street Cafe custard is truly amazing. The Custard Espresso blend – quite good. Interior view of the 6th Street Cafe shop. The menu board. Neat sign. A creative use of empty wall space.
