Why buy beans you can get just anywhere?
With over twenty coffee roasters in town making both boutique blends and distributing wholesale, there's undeniably a lot going on in the Phoenix coffee community. If you're feeling stuck in a rut with your java, why not try a whole new roastery to add some variety to your mornings. While this list doesn't have every spot in town you can find local coffee, especially since many wholesale roasters' beans are distributed under private labels, here are some of the many places you can go if you're interested in buying beans to make coffee at home.

Altitude Coffee Lab
Utilizing the Portuguese Joper roasting system, this North Scottsdale-based operation currently only sells its boutique roasts, along with brewed drinks, from the European-style cafe/roastery.

The Bergeson brothers have been roasting in the Valley since 2008 in a converted home in Gilbert's Heritage District known as Bergie's.

Cartel Coffee Lab
Seen by many as one of the Phoenix-area's best coffee roasters, Cartel supplies coffee (beans and brewed) to local restaurants and cafes. Jobot, for instance, uses a specialty blend of Cartel-roasted beans.
Coffee Reserve
Primarily a wholesale coffee roaster, it can be a little trickier to get your hands on Coffee Reserve coffee, but if you dig what they brew at P.F. Chang's or Pei Wei restaurants, try stopping by the roastery to pick up a bag.
Echo Coffee
Echo Coffee's cult-like following knows to go to the Scottsdale cafe first and foremost for the coffee beans, but Pig & Pickle and Tom Thumb's Fresh Market also serve up brewed Echo-roasted coffee.
Echo Espresso
No, you aren't hearing an echo, there's both an Echo Coffee and an Echo Espresso operating out of Phoenix. The Echo Espresso roastery operates out of West Phoenix, making specialty coffee and selling teas and espresso machines since 1990.

How could you leave out the very best roasted beans in Tempe by excluding Xtreme Bean Cafe on Southern Avenue, just west of McClintock Drive?

Hi! Just a quick correction for you. There is Echo Espresso which is just a roasting company, with no cafe store front and then there is Echo Coffee which you have described in the article! Thanks, (an Echo Coffee employee) Suzy
