Build out of a flagship roastery for Press Coffee in the 32nd and Shea neighborhood of North Phoenix is underway. Owners Jason Kyle, Steve Kraus, Tram Mai and Alex Mason donned hard hats and shovels last week to officially break ground on construction at the site.

The 5,600 sqft facility at 10443 N. 32nd St. will be a full production site for Press Coffee’s 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. Expected completion of the $3.5 million project is Spring 2019.

The Construction Zone, LTD is serving as the general contractor, architect and designer. The modern design of the flagship roastery will showcase and educate the public about specialty coffee with viewing areas of the roasting rooms and space for Press’ Coffee 101 tastings.

Press has been Arizona’s own local coffee roaster since 2008. It has nine Valley locations in Scottsdale, Tempe, Phoenix and Chandler. Visit Press Coffee online at and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @presscoffee.
