A place where you can walk in, smell the sweet aromas of coffee beans and espresso shots, while being greeted by a barista who probably already knows your drink. That feeling is what you can find all around Phoenix’s North Valley, with plenty of coffee roasters that will make you feel right at home, even on your first visit.
