Phoenix is going to have some serious catching up to do because another coffee shop has opened in Tucson. Maybe it’s the nice weather, or maybe it’s the coffee, but this place sounds cool.

Hello Chris. I love this site. Last Saturday I visited a brand new Coffee Shop / Roastery in Tucson. It’s name is Caffé Lucé. Located at the edge of the campus at U of A. It is refreshing to see the level of coffee knowledge that they have. The owner is Martyn Meisner, an ex-musician going for a coffee roaster title.

Martyn has re-located from Seattle and has a lot of experience on coffee. He was in charge of some technical department for SBC.

Thanks Ron, appreciate the email.

    I had a coffee at Caffe Luce this morning, both my wife and I enjoyed it. I hope it sticks around for awhile.

    The Caffe Luce crew is a great bunch. I’m sure Jim and Martha will agree. We’ve seen them many times and have had great conversations on coffee and the industry. I wish they would have told us when they opened. They had great setbacks on opening. The city of Tucson has lots of red tape to hurdle.
