Our passion for coffee traces back from our humble beginnings in the 90’s. We are a family owned business that caters for the most demanding palates among coffee drinkers in Arizona. Our goal is to give you and your loved ones a unique experience by introducing you to an amazing array of products made of coffee beans that hail from exotic locations around the world. From our family to yours, we promise an outstanding coffee product that is backed up by decades of experience in the industry as well as extensive research. Our approach to help you discover and understand your coffee palate is simple: we carefully select coffee growers and partners that share passion and sustainable production practices, we then establish stretch connection ties with them in order to closely control and monitor the proper harvesting at the plantation level, and lastly, we deliver the final product in your hands. Come in and join us by having a relaxing cup of COFFEE with us!

Coffee is what makes me a complete person. Coffee is a product that has provided a canvas to express my creativity and the one of many others on my team. Coffee has become an obsession of mine that could become the passion of my children. Cortez Coffee has grown so much since the 90’s that is now also the opportunity to make a difference in the life of many of our collaborators. We now can say that the best coffee in the world is produced around the world but roasted in Arizona. The best part of our story still in the making, follow us!
