I just had a chance to visit the new Coffee Wizard opening this week in Tempe. Located on the SE corner of University and McClintock on the south side. They are associated with a car wash (optional) and have their own drive-thru, too.

Daniel Suh is working with Ron Cortez on this venture, and it looks like a winner. They will be serving Cafe Cortez coffee — Ron’s coffee roasting company.

On October 31st the are having their grand opening. They promised some special offers for customers that day. Then, on November 1st they begin normal hours (6am to 7pm), seven days a week.

Ron Cortez, owner, shows us his new toddy bottles.

Coffee beans in the hopper.

Coffee Wizard looks like a great place, and I look forward to my next visit.

    Awesome Ron! We need a few of your shops in LA!

  5. Thank you guys. Our intention in coffeewizard is to focus on a combination of exelent customer service, fresh coffee amazing drinks and ultimate drive thru convenience. The wizard has been an educational process for many of us as we build it from scratch. The menu is simple and understandable with the idea of less drinks made well. All feedback will be appreciated. If you are driving thru university on Haloween night stop by and have a drink on us. See you all soon.

  6. We wish you the best of luck, Ron. And, we will drop by soon for some of your excellent coffee.
