Kahvi Coffee is the brainchild of co-founders Julian Wright and Jordan Taylor who believe, “coffee is something to be enjoyed with friends or [as] a great way to ease into the day.” According to the café’s website the concept combines “Jordan’s Scandinavian heritage with Julian’s love of Tulum, Mexico.”
The café gets its name from the Finnish word for coffee, although at Kahvi, coffee is only part of the experience. The coffee shop is slated to open on July 1st in the monOrchid mixed-use community space on Roosevelt Ave. in Phoenix and will offer patrons “custom coffee blends, teas, botanical brews, cold brew, beer, [a] full bar, breakfast, lunch, [and] gallery events.”
“It’s got a Tulum-inspired décor” coupled with a “French-feel,” Wright told What Now Phoenix. Kahvi will serve up “bakery-fresh pasteries, baguette sandwiches, and in addition to coffee, a selection of wine and beer, and possibly eventually cocktails.”
Kahvi will be located in the gallery space at monOrchid, so Wright anticipates having gallery openings in the shop from time-to-time. On the day-to-day, Kahvi will offer two bar tops and large and small tables for individuals and groups.
The Roosevelt Row Arts District warehouse has been redeveloped a couple of times since its construction by Del Webb in 1937. Joining Kahvi in the warehouse are two of Wright’s other ventures, Sake Haus and Pedal Haus. “It’s just a really cool building, in a really cool neighborhood—it’s hard to beat that combination,” Wright said.
Starting this summer you’ll get to be a patron of the arts and a new coffee house, all without leaving the warehouse. It seems the great combinations are endless.
