Echo Coffee is a fairly new coffee shop that opened in Scottsdale in late April, and has already become a local favorite. Owner and operator Steve Belt has built up a great little coffee shop in the south part of Scottsdale. Every time I visit, I’m impressed by the number of patrons.

The shop is located at the NW corner of 68th St. and Thomas Rd.

There are only a few things you really need to know:

  1. They have excellent coffee, and I’ve been impressed with their desire to improve
  2. They have a chef on hand and have really good; fresh baked goods
  3. They roast their own coffee on-site

Steve Belt is a real estate professional, that decided to do something different.

The difference between good and great is often measured by the care and attention we pay to the little things. — Steve Belt

Steve has written a number of interesting blog posts over the year and anybody even considering opening their own shop should seriously read them. They’re interesting because he talks about the hurdles in opening his own shop, and discusses various philosophical ideas surrounding the coffee business.

One of the things I love most about Echo, is the huge windows facing the street. They’ve got windows facing 3 sides, and it’s really cool.

  1. Nice looking place. It’s very rare to see pour-over stations like that in AZ.

    Chris, thanks for the kind words. Echo has been very fortunate to have received incredible support from the local community. As a local business owner, all we can ask is that the comninity give us a chance, and boy has the community given us a chance.

    If we fail (which doesn’t appear likely), it won’t be because the Scottsdale/Phoenix community doesn’t support it’s own. And quite frankly, you are a big part of that with Arizona Coffee. So, once again, thank you. And congrats to you and the misses.
