Coconino Mocha
This is the mocha that got us on the map. Our coconino mocha is a rich little treat. It is ultra smooth due to being made w/ premium chocolate sauce & our hand-crafted cold-brewed coffee at our roastery.
Fireman's Mocha
We add a double shot of espresso to our fireman's hot cocoa. It’s alarmingly good. It's not for kids.
The Rockrammer
A triple shot pulled short w/ raw sugar & a splash of half & half. It's only six ounces but it is packed w/ energy & flavor
Retro Metro
Whole milk & coconut flavoring steamed up & poured over a triple shot. This is a vacation in a shot glass. This little drink comes w/ a big smile. Bring your flip flops.
Back in the early days of opening, when heritage square was a dirt parking lot the locals had this drink pegged as something of a culinary landmark. Although the dirt lot is now a nice public gathering spot, you can still count on our locomotive being there for you on those days when you need a little help going up the hill of life. A locomotive is a cuppa jo w/ a double shot & a splash of half & half.
Spicy Chai Latte
We give india’s national beverage a taste of arizona w/ hot & spicy peppers. Presweetened & served w/ steamed milk.
Flagstaff Mocha
Our cold-brewed coconino mocha steamed up w/ a double shot.
Mars Hill Mocha
Our classic mocha made w/ our custom blended hot cocoa mix & freshly pulled espresso.
White Mocha
A double shot swirling in white chocolate & vanilla.
Hot Cocoa
We custom blend our cocoa mix. Rich & creamy. Made w/ freshly steamed milk.
Fireman's Hot Cocoa
Cocoa w/ new mexico chili spices, vanilla & almond. Caution: it’s not for kids.
A.M. Track Latte
Fresh​ espresso & steamed milk textured to silky sweet perfection.
Rapid Transit Latte
Triple shots for an extra bold & creamy latte.
Vanilla Latte
Flavors are fun. We also have hazelnut, sugar-free vanilla…and others.
Caramel Latte
Creamy caramel sauce w/ an extra dollop of fluffy milk foam.
Soy Milk Latte
Give​ cows a rest.
Fresh from our roastery & pulled to exacting standards. We don't treat our espresso as if were french fries from mcdonalds. You can always rely on our espresso for great taste but we take advantage of seasonal crop offerings to put subtle twists into your shots. Spring brings bright central americans, the fall brings possibilities for chocolate & fruit notes. We love the nuances & bring them to you for pleasing surprises. Due to the differences in blending you may find that our portofino has quite a range of time & temperature parameters you can have when brewing & still get a great shot. Always intensly flavored, smooth & sweet.
Italian Cappuccino
Made traditionally w/ equal parts espresso, milk, & a fluffy cap.
Double espresso that’s filled to the brim w/ lots of filtered hot water.
Cuppa Jo
We roast the coffee & brew it strong.
Fancy Jo
Black coffee gets a tan w/ steam sweetened half & half.
Party Jo
Brew up some fun! 96oz. Serves
Cuppa Tea
Black, green & herbal infused fresh to order.
Sweet Masala Chai Latte
Authentic chai made from imported spices & indian tea. Served w/ steamed milk.
Mate Latte
Unroasted & unsweetened brazilian mate w/ steamed soy milk.
Lightrail Latte
An infusion of our communi-tea blend black tea w/ steamed milk & raw sugar. Communi-tea blend is black tea, bergamot oil, vanilla & spice
Iced Coffee
Our house cuppa jo chilled to fulfill.
Iced Tea
Brisk & refreshing blend of teas from india.
Iced Coconino Mocha
Silky​ smooth chocolate & cold-filtered coffee.
Iced Mars Hill Mocha
Our custom blended cocoa melted into a double shot over ice.

Iced Chai
Your choice sweet or spicy.

Nice little spot for fresh ground, brewed coffee and many different kinds of tea. Good helth and proteen bars too. Eat inside or out. Cool tables with umbrellas and in a nice social environment.
