About

King Coffee is a small family owned and operated coffee shop. Most of the local neighbors remember the days when it used to be Three Roots, but it has since grown into the King Coffee we all love today. The people who started it are the very same people that serve your coffee everyday so we make sure to put that extra love into every cup. We want to serve everyone who walks through our doors with the finest cup of coffee in town and provide a comfortable atmosphere for all.

Our mission is to consistently provide quality beverages and food using fresh, local product and to inspire, improve and preserve our local Tempe community.
