Mazatzal’s Coffee Korner is now open and serving Peet’s Coffee and Tea just inside the south entrance of Mazatzal Hotel and Casino.
Coffee Korner also features baked goods made in-house by bakery staff. The café has two big screen TVs and free WI-FI.
“I actually have been a coffee buff for quite some time,” said Joss Smith, Mazatzal’s Coffee Korner barista supervisor. “I know a lot about coffee, probably too much!”
Smith has been a barista for 12 years, and along with the rest of the staff, trained closely and extensively with the Peet’s representatives. The menu features brewed coffees, espresso beverages, teas and cocoas as well as iced classics, blended beverages and smoothies made to order.
“It’s almost a tie,” replied Smith when asked about the most popular item on the menu. The front runners include, the brewed coffee of the day, which could be any one of a number of special blends including Major Dickason’s, Costa Rica, Sumatra, Gaia, an organic blend, and Café Domingo, a medium roast coffee. The blended beverage Caramel Frio and Chai Tea are also in the running for the most popular items.
