I present my first ‘official’ installment of Americano Mondays at Jobot Coffee.
I ended up going back to Phoenix for a few days last week. So I reached out to some local coffee shops and was lucky enough to shoot at two locations. Not bad seeing as they were last minute requests during a holiday week. (4th of July)
Before our move to California, my wife and I lived in downtown Phoenix. And I must admit, at times I do miss our old neighborhood. (not enough to ever move back) There were multiple restaurants, bars, art galleries and coffee shops all within walking distance. As well as First and Third Fridays, the monthly art walks that were literally downstairs from our loft.
Which brings us to Jobot. A coffee shop that resides in an old duplex originally built in the 1930′s. They opened in October of 2010 and are located on 5th St and Roosevelt. A crazy cool street where all of the homes have been converted into coffee shops, bars, art galleries, book stores and a gift shop. If your ever in downtown Phoenix, make sure to visit Roosevelt Row and support the local shops.
Joey G, one of the owners of Jobot. I’m not sure where they’re getting their espresso beans from but I was more than impressed with how smooth the Americano’ was that he made for me.
I fell in love with this old automated piano. It has so much character. Unfortunately, the scroll/automated part of it doesn’t work anymore.
Bella the dog, kickin’ back at the shop with it’s owner.
I wasn’t able to try one, but I hear that they make good crepes. Parris (with 2 r’s) was kind enough to allow me to photograph her making one.
You are loved
