For now, Tony’s Coffee Bar, at 7001 NW 3rd Ave., is open from 7-10 a.m. Monday through Friday. After Labor Day they plan to expand their hours and be open on Saturdays.

Our menu will feature 4-5 rotating, single-origin, seasonal selections. We also have a rotating house coffee for those that are looking for a comfortable cup of drip. All of our coffees are brewed fresh to order using three manual brew methods – Aeropress, Clever Dripper and Chemex – as well as the fully-automated Trifecta brewer. We are happy to suggest our favorite brew method to first time customers. For those looking for a quick cup to-go, we are serving straight shots and Americanos made from our award-winning espresso blend. For tea drinkers in the neighborhood, we have a variety of organic, whole leaf offerings from local tea-maker, Choice Organics.

In addition to brewing delicious coffee, we are also selling whole bean by the bag and an assortment of brewing gear, including cones, filters, kettles and grinders. Customers get a free cup with a whole bean or brewing gear purchase. We will continue to host cuppings Fridays at noon that are still free & open to the public. We’re also excited to offer home brewing classes as well as other educational events in the near future. Our hope is to show customers how to brew great coffee at home while providing a space to explore all the possibilities coffee has to offer.
