A coffee shop is opening at an iconic Tucson monastery | subscribers

A Tucson-based coffee roaster founded by siblings is opening its flagship shop at the iconic Benedictine Monastery.

Yellow Brick Coffee has had a roasting facility and small coffeehouse at 3220 S. Dodge Blvd. since 2013 and supplies coffee to numerous local shops around Tucson and online.

Its new spot at the monastery, 800 N. Country Club Road, will be an upscale gathering place with hand- and batch-brewed coffees, espresso-based beverages and pastries made in-house.

The brother-and-sister team of Anna and David Perreira began their roasting journey in their parents’ garage in 2012.

“We intentionally grew the wholesale and e-commerce business waiting for a space that felt right,” Anna Perreira said. “Once the Benedictine renovation was presented to us, we knew this would be the right fit.”

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 will 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,” David Perreira said.

The coffee shop is expected to open this case.
