Presta Coffee Roasters’ 10th Anniversary on Valentine’s Day

"Love is in the air... So is the smell of coffee."

This Valentine’s Day — Monday, February 14 — Presta Coffee Roasters is celebrating its tenth anniversary with new drinks, yummy bites, and prizes.

It’s been a decade for the coffee shop, which was once a coffee cart in the corner of a hospital. Since then it’s blossomed into three well-loved locations around Tucson, including its newest spot near Fourth Avenue on 501 E. Ninth St.

Owner and bicycle enthusiast, Curtis Zimmerman, purposely opened up each of the three locations in an area that’s convenient for cyclists to navigate to. However, no matter how you show up, Zimmerman is excited to reveal Presta’s new drinks.

“Bring a friend or a lover and come out to celebrate,” said Zimmerman.

On Valentine’s Day, they’ll be celebrating the anniversary with four new, seasonal drinks — all of which have been recently revealed, like the vibrant L’orangé.

  • L’orangé – orange and clove latte, served both hot or iced
  • Le Pamplemousse— a grapefruit rosemary espresso tonic
  • La Fleur— lavender, vanilla bean, and cocoa served with your choice of milk over ice or steamed
  • Le Soleil— golden milk, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, peppercorns, cardamom, and brown sugar

Additionally, you can bet there’s going to be special treats from Holden’s Rise Above at all locations, and then pizza from the Ciao Down food truck at the Ninth Street location only from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Also, being that it’s Valentine’s Day, bouquets from Bloom Maven will be available to purchase at both the Ninth Street and First Avenue locations.

You can’t forget about the prizes either. All three locations will be doing raffles, meaning that for every bag purchased (in-store only) will get you entered to win Presta merchandise, brew equipment, or a bag of one of their very limited offerings.

Presta Coffee Roasters is located at 501 E. Ninth St., 2502 N. First Ave. #100, 100 S. Avenida del Convento #180. For more information, visit prestacoffee.com.
