Americano Mondays is a photo + film and interview series inspired by coffee culture.

I present our latest edition of Americano Mondays from Lola Coffee in downtown Phoenix. They are located in the historic Gold Spot building which also houses The Pita Jungle. (one of my favorite restaurants that also catered our wedding) Their building also happens to sit next to the lofts we used to live in, which was rather nice.

What began as a coffee cart in 1993 has grown into a beautifully designed coffee shop owned by Daniel Wayne.  He is well known for roasting organic, fair trade beans on site. And if you happen to visit during a roast the whole building (and surrounding area) smells amazing.
A cool, final note: In 2003 he won the Millrock Latte Art Competition in Las Vegas.
Here’s some imagery from an afternoon I recently spent there.
