Phoenix-based Press Coffee Roasters is building a $3.5 million, 5,600-square-foot roasting headquarters and cafe in the Shea neighborhood of North Phoenix.
The company currently operates seven cafes in the Valley — in Scottsdale, Tempe, Phoenix and Chandler — along with its existing South Phoenix roastery, which will be converted to a cold brew production facility once the new roastery is up and running, according to a Press announcement today.
“This facility allows us to open our doors to the public and share our passion for roasting amazing coffees from around the world,” said Jason Kyle, who co-owns Press with Steve Kraus and Alex Mason. “We’re also thrilled to help put Arizona on the specialty coffee national map.”
Local firm The Construction Zone is serving as designer, architect and general contractor of the new facility, which will include clear views from the retail area into the roastery, and will also be set up for public tastings. The current roastery, at 4844 S. 40th St., will be outfitted with a new 15-barrel system for cold brew production, according to the company.
Slated for completion in the Spring of 2019, the new flagship roastery and cafe will be located at 10443 N. 32nd St., just south of E. Shea Blvd.
