I give it a frank 5 Stars as deserved and I now its a bold rating but well deserved. The location is exceptionally nice both inside and out and so are the employees. Rare especially in today's super mega Supermarket atmosphere where everything is on a corporate world wide level. I still consider Basha's a mid-size community oriented market in the purest definition.
Basha's Coffee Shop earns such high marks for a number of reasons situated nicely in a very nice store is one. The freshness that exudes from the beautiful selection of fresh Vegetables to the delectable fruit all within eyesight from the coffee shop. Another nice feature is the seemingly effortless merging of both the store and the Coffee Shop to work together all for the benefit of the customer. As the store has made sufficient room for the Coffee Shop which in turn sends a clear message of Independent Social patronage without the need to affiliate with Basha's the store. I personally have held a few meetings with clients in the Coffee Shop. I have to say the Coffee Shop was very successful in maintaining a professional atmosphere.
Basha's the Supermarket does a great job of remaining detached yet 100% supportive of the Coffee House in every aspect. The amenities are sufficient with more than adequate seating, power outlets and surface space. I have used the WI-FI at the Coffee House on several occasions and I must say they do make it easy by placing the instructions clearly on the wall within the WI-Fi area. Connection is always effortless and glitch-free and only a few feet from the Starbucks counter. The speed is more than sufficient. equivalent to my own DSL based landline back at home. So if you get a chance stop by and have a cup o' joe with us over at the Basha's Coffee House N. Swan Road, Tucson.
Air roasted coffee and then refrigerated, I can't think of a worse method - unless of course you roast coffee in a cast iron skillet and then put into the fridge...
Easily the worst espresso in Tucson, not to mention anywhere with an espresso machine. The grind is set so course all you get is over-extracted hot water, almost threw it up.
On the plus, they do have good scones.
Decent place to study if you're a college kid. As for the beverages? Coffees aren't good at all, not just my opinion, and the chai tea is terrible.
