The city of Scottsdale has a lot to offer this December, and you’re definitely going to want to be wide awake to take it all in. What better way to get things rolling in the morning than a freshly brewed cup of coffee? When you visit Scottsdale, you’re never far away from quality java.

In Scottsdale, we’re a little better at it these days. Take a look…
