Blue Bottle Coffee is Coming to Town

Posted By on Wed, Apr 27, 2011 at 10:45 AM

A friend who is quite the coffee nut says Blue Bottle Coffee from San Francisco is some of the best, and after reading up on the company, I believe him.

The company's story—small microroastery claws way to fame—exactly the sort of success story I hope to watch our own little microroastery Cafe Aqui pull off, once the world discovers how amazing their coffee is.

But I digress ... Ari Shapiro dropped us an e-mail last week to announce that his up-and-coming shop Sparkroot—which is still under construction on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Congress Street—will be the first place in Arizona to carry Blue Bottle Coffee.

Sparkroot will specialize in high-end coffees, a little bit of booze and simple sandwiches made with quality ingredients, and will have a very cool elevated dining area overlooking Congress Street, when it opens later this year.
