The guys here do their own roasting, and as a result, they've cultivated a following. Sure, this spot off Campbell Avenue is a nice, quiet place for meet-ups, too—there's no loud music blaring—but this is really a place that's all about the coffee. The menu isn't helter-skelter, and the drink menu doesn't include a long list of made-up café contrivances. Get a cup of the house blend; sit yourself down with a newspaper (like the Tucson Weekly); and take a break to commune with man and coffee. You might take a bag of coffee beans home with you, and eventually, you might imagine those beans calling out to you from the freezer. Don't worry; they'll be there in the morning.
