Copper Star Coffee

The weather in Phoenix has continued to be amazing lately, perfect for sitting outside sipping iced coffee. Recently Scott and I made a trip to Copper Star Coffee, a coffee shop in Phoenix that is set-up in an old gas station.

The inside of the shop is fairly small, but is very cozy. I love all the exposed brick, and the coffee bean bags on the ceilings (you can barely see them).

Copper Star also has the cutest signs outside their shop. I would love to have this giant coffee cup painting in my home!

I'm not sure If I've mentioned it before, but Scott has two younger brothers. In the above photo Scott looks so much his youngest brother Dylan that it's not even funny. Their family truly has some strong genes!

MMM iced coffee!

Lately my days have consisted of: class, homework, reading (a ton!), making plans for Valentines Day, listening to Caged the Elephant, lots of meals at home, making new friends, blogging loads (for myself and ASU), learning to use my camera in manual mode, and dreaming of a summer trip to Seattle.

Big thank you to Scott for taking such lovely photos. I am so lucky to have such a great photographer!


  1. That looks like such a cool place. I'll have to try it out sometime. I'm headed to the coffee shop tonight. :)

  2. while you're in Seattle this summer, you should head down and visit Portland! Summer is the best time to see the Pac NW!

  3. That place looks so cute. I love exposed brick! You look so happy and lovely. Scott really takes wonderful pictures of you!

  4. seriously, all these coffee shops make me want to go to phoenix so bad!

  5. I have heard about this cafe! When I was in Scottsdale last summer my friend took me to Starbucks everyday (against my will). Since then I have heard of so many awesome independent cafes! I am excited to go back & visit now.
