David Anderson of Cave Creek Coffee Roastery was recently featured in the Arizona Republic. The profile highlights how Anderson got into the coffee business, founded and then sold Cave Creek Coffee Company, started Cave Creek Coffee Roastery, and now organizes music events.

Since his two passions are coffee and music, he books musical acts at local venues that range from Scottish-Australian musician Colin Hay with the band Men at Work, to country music duo Sugarland.

The latest act he’s booked is Grammy-award winner Shawn Colvin, who is scheduled to perform at north Scottsdale’s el Pedregal on Oct. 10.

In his leftover time, Anderson does consulting for entrepreneurs seeking to open coffee shops. He said he encounters many coffeehouses that “don’t have it right.”

“The idea is to create a warm atmosphere,” he said. “It is that ‘third place’ where people spend their time.”
