We’re excited to announce we will be joining the North Phoenix neighborhood of 32nd & Shea next year with an amazing new roastery. The flagship facility will be a full production site for our whole bean roasting operations. It will also be open to the public with a fully functioning café serving drinks and food with plenty of meeting space.
This iconic building is part of our ongoing commitment to be Arizona’s own local coffee roaster. We wanted to go beyond just a production facility and create a space that allows us to share our love for coffee with the community.
The Construction Zone, LTD is our general contractor, architect and designer and we’re thrilled with their modern design that will allow us to showcase and educate the public about specialty coffee with viewing areas of the roasting rooms and space for our Coffee 101 tastings.
Expected completion of the project is Spring 2019.

A very big thank you to everyone for your support of our first Press On Charities efforts. We have raised nearly $7,000 so far to help some great organizations in our communities.
With our Day of Giving, you came out to support Phoenix Children’s Hospital. With the help of our wholesale partner Over Easy, we were able to raise more than $2,500!
We are also excited to announce that our partnership with the Phoenix Zoo not only created resulted in the first certified Jaguar-friendly roast in the United States, but also in raising more than $4,000 for the Zoo and its jaguar research efforts in Costa Rica.
We’re excited to continue supporting our Arizona communities through Press On Charities as we give back to the community we’ve been a part of for the past 10 years. Look for our next Press On Charities event soon.
Even great dads can be hard to shop for. Thankfully Press Coffee has created a coffee blend with them in mind just in time for Father’s Day. The World’s Greatest Dad Blend is the second year Press has created a Father’s Day coffee just for pops. The World’s Greatest blend is as big and bold as Dad’s love. It comes in 12-ounce bags of whole beans and will be available in all Press locations and online at PressCoffee.com starting June 1 for $16.
On Sunday, June 17 dads can also come in to any Press location for a free hot drip coffee in any size. No proof of fatherhood required, just identify yourself to the barista when ordering. The offer is good all day.
We’re saying thank you to all the Moms out there for Mother’s Day. On Sunday, May 13, Moms can come in for a free drip coffee or half-price latte in any size. No proof of motherhood required, just identify yourself to the barista when ordering. The offer is good all day at all Press Coffee locations.
We’re excited to announce the launch of Press On Charities, our ongoing program to further support Arizona communities. It will all start with a Day of Giving next month that will support Phoenix Children’s Hospital. On Friday, May 18, we will donate all profits from sales online and at our seven locations to the hospital’s foundation. That’s right – all profits!
Joining us in this first effort is Over Easy, one of our wholesale partners. Over Easy will match our donation for the day to PCH.
As we celebrate 10 years as Arizona’s own specialty coffee roaster, we know it’s our neighbors, community and wholesale partners who make it all possible. Press On Charities is our way to give back and support the organizations making our communities strong.
We’re looking forward to this debut Press On Charities and the chance to support the amazing work of Phoenix Children’s Hospital. We hope you’ll save the day and join us on May 18.
Cold brew is so hot right now. It’s gone from a little-known drink at specialty coffee houses to available in grocery stores and breakfast chains nationwide, and now it has its very own day.
National Cold Brew Day is Friday, April 20 and we’re celebrating with a Buy One, Get One deal:
16 or 20 ounce cold brew
*of equal or lesser value
The Cold Brew BOGO is available on Friday only at all seven of our Valley locations.
We have been honored to share our passion for the complexity and beauty of specialty coffee with our customers over the last 10 years, so we’re especially excited to introduce our first micro-lot roast today. The La Berlina Geisha is the first in our new line of high-end, limited edition roasts that are a true luxury to sip and enjoy.
Just like wine, micro-lots of beans have a unique and intense terrior. This exceptional full natural Geisha from Panama’s Horqueta district has a floral-forward profile with notes of strawberry and peach. For us at Press, they let our whole team test our skills to bring out the full flavor potential – from roasting to brewing. For our guests, they are another way to learn and experience even more about coffee quality and origin.
And what an origin this micro-lot has!
The La Berlina Estate sits tucked into the mountains along the La Amistad International Park at the Panama-Costa Rica border. In the 1920s, Columbian soldier-turned-farmer Segundo Diaz was the first to tame the wild coffee trees scattered throughout the estate’s rainforest into a sustainable and recognized crop. A half-century and a devastating flood later, new owners worked to bring the farm back from the wilds again. Casa Ruiz has since turned the estate into an internationally recognized Panamanian brand.
The fortitude of the La Berlina Estate is an appropriate terrior for the fickle Geisha varietal. It takes just the right combination of rainfall, elevation, soil and nutrient composition to highlight the best of the sweet and floral attributes the Geisha is known for.
We have secured only 150 pounds from this micro-lot – a small amount compared to the average 1,000 pounds we get for our other single origins. It is available while supplies last at our street-side cafes for $30 for a commemorative box containing 8 ounces of whole beans or as a 12-ounce pour over for $6. Boxes can also be ordered online.
Look for other high-end, micro-lot roast throughout the year as we continue to share the very best coffee offers with you.
If you’re looking for something new to try, we’ve got two new roasts on the shelves: the Honduras San Vicente and the Ethiopia Fugu.
Grown on a family owned farm in El Dorado, the Honduras San Vicente has a creamy body, that blends the warm richness of caramel with the sweetness of a pear.
Give the San Vicente a try on our brew bar. It’s also available for $17.50 by the bag.
The Ethiopia Fugu is a perfect combination of citrus and sweet with blood orange, blackberry and hibiscus notes. From the southern region of Ethiopia, this coffee is a great choice for those who like a bold fruity taste.
The Fugu is available by the bag for $19.
Start your Valentine’s Day with a heart – and a coffee. This February 14 we’re serving #HeartsAllDay in lattes, cappuccinos and macchiato drinks. You can also enjoy a nice cold brew or iced latte, because we’ll be putting a little extra love in our cups.
Wondering what to give your special someone? Our hydroflasks, gift cards, bags of whole bean and apparel all make great gifts for your coffee lover and are available at all our Phoenix locations.
This year we turn 10! It’s been an honor to have been part of the Arizona coffee community since 2008. To celebrate, we are excited to announce the release of our 10 year commemorative token. #PressTokens will be redeemable for special giveaways throughout the year and always good for a free cup of drip coffee at any Press Coffee location.
There are a limited number of Press Tokens, but they’ll be in constant circulation all year long. If you find yourself with one of these special commemorative “coins” follow us on Instagram @presscoffee to see what the current offer is. Of course, you can also redeem it at any time at any Press Coffee location for a free drip coffee.
Thank you all for your support over the years!
