Cafe Opens at Iconic Tucson Monastery | Subscriber

A Tucson-based coffee roaster founded by siblings opens its flagship store in the iconic Benedictine monastery.

Yellow Brick Coffee had a roasting facility and a small cafe at 3220 S. Dodge Blvd. since 2013 and provides coffee to many local stores around Tucson and online.

Its new location at the Monastery, 800 N. Country Club Road, will be an upscale gathering spot with hand-brewed and batch coffees, espresso-based beverages and homemade pastries.

Anna and David Perreira’s sibling team began their roasting journey in their parents’ garage in 2012.

“We have intentionally developed the wholesale and e-commerce business while waiting for a space that suits us,” said Anna Perreira. “Once Benedictine renovation was introduced to us, we knew it would be the right solution.”

Yellow Brick Coffee will have an open design so customers can watch their drinks being prepared.

“They’ll be able to see how we pull and weigh a shot, steam milk, pour latte art, etc., and they’ll be able to interact with the barista at the same time, almost like a chef’s table or a bartender mixing your drink right in front of you,” said David Perreira.

The cafe is expected to open this fall.
