There is nothing I enjoy more in my blogging life than meeting other bloggers. Meeting other Arizona bloggers is even more fun!
The other night, a large group of Arizona bloggers met up in the evening at Peixoto Coffee in downtown Chandler.
It was the first time I had visited and I have already gone back to take hubby.
I have to confess, I am the kind of girl who likes a little coffee with her creamer and really hate the taste of coffee so I had to doctor up my cold brew when I got home, but hubby tried their Curtado and really liked it.
If coffee/espresso is your thing – this is definitely a must stop coffee shop. And I have to admit, the price was very decently in my opinion.
I have to clarify though, my “opinion” is based on two coffee locations; Starbucks who I feel is incredibly overpriced and another local coffee shop that I frequent quite often who I find reasonably priced as well as delicious.
I would place Peixoto Coffee between the two in regards to price. It was less than Starbucks, but a little higher than the local shop I frequent. (Taste wise? I put Peixoto Coffee before Starbucks and personally for me, after my other shop, but only because they cater to my frou-frou coffee drinks!)
The big difference?
Peixoto Coffee is ‘from crop to cup’.
Peixoto Coffee comes with over 100 years of family tradition. Each bean has been grown, farmed, harvested, packaged and sold by the loving hands of the Peixoto family and farmers who put hard work and joy into every step of the process— quality that is evident from the moment the coffee tree seedling is planted all the way to the second you take a sip.
As an entirely family-owned business, Peixoto Coffee represents one of only a handful of coffee roasting companies in the United States that has complete control over their coffee production, from crop-to-cup. When you enjoy a cup of Peixoto coffee, you’re enjoying a piece of family history.
Their family farm, Fazenda Sao José da Boa Vista, is situated in the Alta Mogiana region of Brazil at 1250 meters (4100 ft.) of altitude. Due to its tropical temperatures, high altitude, well-defined rainy seasons, and rich soil, the location provides the ideal conditions for growing high-quality Arabica coffee. In fact, it’s one of the best regions to grow coffee in the entire world.
There is nothing I love more than supporting small business and family businesses and I am sure we will be going back to try more of their menu!
