I hear an Echo…

Welcome to Echo Coffee in Scottsdale, AZ.

The sweet sound of success. Some people hear it, some don’t. If you listen closely, you will hear my good friend Steve Belt talking about what a coffee shop should be. To be clear, I have no idea what it takes to make a great Scottsdale coffee shop but I have no doubt in my mind that Steve knows. You see, for several months, I have been fortunate to hear him talk about his passion for opening an exceptional coffee shop and I have learned more than I really ever thought I would care to know about how he will turn a shell of a building in to a place where people will come to expect great coffee in an inviting atmosphere. I have been a “taste test dummy” and have asked why in the world someone running a very successful business would decide to open a coffee shop. The answers always impressed me.

Soon, Echo Coffee will open in South Scottsdale and will be run by a guy that I have never known to settle for second best. Come mid-April, go on over to 2902 N 68th Street in Scottsdale which is at the Northwest corner of 68th Street and Thomas Road, just 1/2 mile west of Scottsdale Road.  Echo Coffee will be open 7am-10pm, every day, except Christmas, New Years, and Thanksgiving. You really should head over and give it a try. Along with coffee, they will offer fresh pastries, sandwiches, and salads which will be made right in the shop. Free WiFi that actually works really well is also going to be available. The tag line for Echo Coffee is: “Fresh. Local. Organic.”

You might be wondering why in the heck I am writing about Steve and his coffee shop . Well, Steve and I happen to think a lot alike in many aspects of our business. Treating people right, loving what you do and having fun with life can benefit yourself and those around you. I’m looking forward to checking out Arizona’s next great coffee shop…

See ya’ there…

  1. Steve Belt says:

    Nick, you are far too kind. While I can’t say the coffee shop will be exceptional, I can say I will try my best to make it that way. Hopefully my best is good enough.

    More importantly, this endeavor has shown me just how lucky I am to have amazing friends like you. Thank you.

  2. Justin McHood says:

    I suspect that it won’t be long before echo coffee becomes one of the “hip” places to hang out.

    Which is completely cool with me – I can always use a few more friends who have hip places to hang out.

    Oh, and the great coffee will be awesome too.

    Congrats Steve!
