For coffee lovers, it's a real treat to discover a local coffee shop where you can savor a cup of coffee and connect with the local community. While there are many coffee shops throughout Chandler, there are several that stand-out with their own, distinctive local flair.

Peixoto Coffee
11 W. Boston St., #6
Chandler, AZ 85225
Located in Downtown Chandler, Peixoto Coffee offers a unique, crop-to-cup experience that celebrates over a 100 years of Brazilian family tradition in a warm and modern setting. Pronounced ‘pay-SHOW-toe', the coffee that is roasted comes from beans harvested on the family farm, Fazenda Sao José da Boa Vista located in the Alta Mogiana region of Brazil. The green coffee beans are then roasted in small batches, on-site, front and center in their coffee lounge. A beloved house specialty is the "pour over" coffee that utilizes a traditional brewing technique where the barista slowly pours 200-degree water over a paper funnel of coffee beans - creating a purer, more defined cup of coffee. Peixoto also offers a small selection of baked treats highlighting a variety of local food vendors - but be sure to try the house-made pão de queijo - a popular Brazilian cheese bread served for breakfast or snack.

Talebu Coffee & Wine Café
2095 N. Alma School Rd., Ste. 2
Chandler, AZ 85224
Centrally located in Chandler, Talebu Coffee & Wine Café offers a large selection of premium coffees and tea - including a local favorite, the Mexican mocha - particularly divine over ice if you are so inclined!
