Cartel Coronado Grand Opening
March 26 @ 12:00 am
Cartel Roasting Co. is opening an all-new location in the heart of Phoenix’s historic Coronado neighborhood and celebrating with a weekend full of fun, food and freebies. Kicking off on Saturday, March 26, at 7 a.m., Cartel Coronado will be giving out free coffee for a full year to one lucky guest, plus free Cartel Coronado koozies to the first 200 people in line.
Housed inside a handsomely-restored 1915 bungalow, alongside Cartel’s full menu of coffee beverages, pastries and breakfast burritos, this latest location will also welcome the neighborhood with food trucks all day long.
Founded in Tempe in 2007 with a single coffee cart, and still proudly family owned by Amy and Jason Silberschlag, Cartel is one of Arizona’s top specialty coffee retailers and roasteries, with now 11 highly unique locations across Arizona, California and Texas. Hand-built by Jason and the Cartel team, Cartel Coronado (open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily) will feature plenty of cozy nooks perfect for sipping and lounging inside the compact 1,217 sq. ft. space. Or kick back on the expansive front porch, or the spacious grounds filled with shade trees and seating areas.
Recently rebranded to emphasize Cartel’s commitment to “Make Good Things” from “Seed To Cup” one thing that will never change at Cartel is hand-roasting every single bean they serve, and exclusively working with small scale coffee farmers. And to support its new, sustainable growth, Cartel is also constructing a dedicated 12,000 square foot production facility, including cold brewing and canning line, a full commercial bakery and upgraded roasting capabilities. Cartel’s freshly-roasted coffee is also available at Whole Foods and select grocery stores across Arizona, as well as via the all-new website, for both in-store pickup or delivery.
Most important, Cartel is committed to supporting the communities it serves, led by the Give Back Blend program, donating 10 percent of all proceeds from each bag sold to local nonprofits, such as Habitat For Humanity. Plus, Cartel also proudly partners with local artisans to craft specialty coffee drinks, such as the Lime Leaf Tonic in the Iconic Tonic Beverage, made with sparkling tonic water from Phoenix’s Iconic Cocktail Co.
