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!
2017 was a big year for us at Press Coffee. We’re especially proud to be included in Daily Coffee News’ list of some of the biggest US coffee shop openings in 2017. The article mentions our flagship space at The Muse in Downtown Phoenix.
This was one of several new locations, and with each we have been able to meet, serve and share our passion for specialty coffee with even more people in Phoenix.
With the start of 2018, we are celebrating 10 years of being Arizona’s own coffee roaster. We have a lot in the works to recognize this milestone anniversary. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @presscoffee for all the latest roasts, events and offers.
We love this time of year at Press. It’s wonderful seeing all our regular and new guests celebrating the season. Thank you all for your support this year as we continued to bring our award-winning coffees to even more Phoenix neighborhoods.

We are happy to announce our popular Coffee 101 tasting classes will now be offered at our new Biltmore area location starting Saturday, November 11. These one-hour sessions take participants around the world with a sampling of four distinctly different coffees.
Based on the coffee cupping format that coffee professionals use to evaluate beans and roasts, the tasting is an interactive experience of smelling, slurping and learning. Our coffee experts guide you through a brief history of each coffee and how their journey from seed to cup has created the flavors you taste. At the end you’ll have a much better understanding of coffee regions and flavors.
The sessions at Press Coffee Biltmore will be held twice every Saturday at 9 am and 11 am.
Coffee 101 will also continue to be held every first and third Saturday at our Ocotillo Chandler shop at 10 am and every second and fourth Saturday at our Scottsdale Quarter location at 10 am.
Cost is $10 and after the event you’ll receive a gift card to use at any Press Coffee location. Space is limited and advance registration is encouraged.
Sign up for the tastings at PressCoffee.com/tastings.
