Press Coffee Roasters Building Flagship Roasting Facility

This was an old ugly building that was a KFC and then was proposed as a medical marijuana facility.   Some of the community fought back and the dispensary withdrew.
Now we have a beautiful facility coming that will bring positive attention to our neighborhood and be a key anchor for more businesses to see value in desire to open up shop.
North 32nd, particularly the Shea and 32nd Street area, is becoming a desired location with a much improved walk ability score.

Press Coffee Roasters announced it will build a flagship roasting facility in the 32nd & Shea neighborhood of North Phoenix. The 5,600 sqft facility at 10443 N. 32nd St. will be a full production site for Press Coffee’s whole bean roasting operations. It will also be open to the public with a fully functioning café serving drinks and food with plenty of meeting space. Expected completion of the $3.5 million project is Spring 2019.

Co-owners Steve Kraus, Jason Kyle and Alex Mason describe the new roastery as an ongoing commitment from Press to be Arizona’s own local coffee roaster. Kraus opened the first Press Coffee in North Phoenix in 2008 and Kyle and Mason are both born-and-raised Arizona natives.

Says Kraus, “We are excited about the future of this iconic building. We wanted to go beyond just a production facility and create a space that allows us to share our love for coffee with the community.”

The Construction Zone, LTD will serve as the general contractor, architect and designer. The modern design of the flagship roastery will showcase and educate the public about specialty coffee with viewing areas of the roasting rooms and space for Press’ Coffee 101 tastings.

“This facility allows us to open our doors to the public and share our passion for roasting amazing coffees from around the world,” says Kyle. “We’re also thrilled to help put Arizona on the specialty coffee national map.”

The project will double Press’ production facilities. When the new roastery is open, its current whole bean roastery located in Phoenix will be dedicated for cold brew production. Press plans to expand cold brew production with the addition of a 15-barrel brewing system.

“We’re proud to have helped lead the way in creating a great, locally made cold brew that Arizona can call its own,” says Mason. “This expansion allows us to serve cold brew to even more of Arizona.”

Pool Barrier Requirements

May 4 1991 is an important date.  If your pool was built before this time then the restrictions are less stringent due to grandfathering.  All pools built after are subject to the all pool fence requirements.

The City of Phoenix requires pools to have an approved fence around them to prevent a child from drowning. For additional information on City of Phoenix Fire and Building Codes related to pool barriers please click here: Pool Barrier Requirement

Did you know that you can contact the Fire Department to report a pool that is accessible due to a fence being down or a gate not functioning properly? You can contact the Phoenix Fire Department Fire Prevention Division at 602-262-6771 to report an accessible pool during normal business hours or you can call 602-495-5555 to report an accessible pool outside of normal business hours. A Fire Inspector will respond to secure the pool.

Have questions? Contact Louisa Ward for regulations in your city!

Notice from the Police Department

When you have lived at the same address for a number of years, you rarely pay any attention to your house numbers (address).

For Police Officers, EMS, and Fire that may be responding to your house in the event of an emergency, your house numbers are what they are looking for.

Make it a point to LOOK at your numbers to see if:
-All of the numbers are still there
-They are Large enough to be seen easily from the street
-Any landscape vegetation has grown over them limiting their visibility

If YOU can see them, so can Emergency Responders… Thank YOU!
