Downtown Chandler Community Partnership
PEIXOTO COFFEE NAMED DOWNTOWN
CHANDLER BUSINESS OF THE YEAR
Chandler, Ariz. – During the June 16 Annual Meeting for Downtown Chandler Community Partnership, Peixoto Coffee was named Downtown Chandler Business of the Year.
The award, which is voted on by community members, was given to Sibley’s West: The Chandler and Arizona Gift Shop last year. During this year’s Annual Meeting, John and Michelle Sibley of Sibley’s West presented Julia Peixoto-Peters of Peixoto Coffee with the Downtown Chandler Business of the Year banner. In addition, Ed Hines, board president of Downtown Chandler Community Partnership, presented Peters-Peixoto with the award.
Since its opening in January of 2015, Peixoto Coffee, at the southwest corner of Boston St. and Arizona Ave., has quickly become a community favorite in the historic downtown. Husband and wife team, Julia Peixoto-Peters and Jeff Peters operate a unique coffee shop; from crop to cup, the beans never leave the Peixoto family.
The beans are grown at Peters-Peixoto’s parents’ farm, Peixoto Coffee Farm, in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Brazilian beans arrive at the Downtown Chandler coffee shop, to be roasted by Peters and, finally, made into a work of art by one of the friendly Peixoto Coffee baristas for you to enjoy.
In addition to offering customers a unique cup of joe, the coffee shop owners have quickly become involved with the local community. “Peixoto was chosen as our business of the year for multiple reasons; they facilitate growth of the downtown, act as a connector and they have become a popular spot for the community to gather,” says Beth Fiorenza, Executive Director of Downtown Chandler Community Partnership.
“We are very thankful,” Peixoto-Peters says. “We chose Downtown Chandler to be the home for Peixoto Coffee and we cannot think of a more caring, diverse and encouraging community to be a part of.”
