Baristas To Open Green In Tempe, AZ

SEATTLE, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Baristas Coffee Company, Inc. (OTCPK: BCCI) announced that it has secured its first location in Tempe, AZ.

The newly constructed location is at 1845 E. University Drive, Tempe, AZ 85281 approximately 6000 feet from the ASU campus and is situated in conjunction with Arizona's first green construction and technology car wash. It is expected to open mid to late Feb.

The site was formerly an abandoned gas station that has been cleaned up using state of the art sustainable green technology.  Some of the features include the collection of rain water, recycling it to be used for landscape irrigation as well as for the patio fountain. Additionally, permeable pavers capture all parking lot surface water allowing for natural storm water retention and drainage, and heat gain reduction. The building is also constructed of blocks made from recycled polystyrene, which provides increased strength and insulation value and recycled denim is used as ceiling insulation in lieu of toxic fiberglass. Energy saving enhancements such as a geothermal A.C System, computer managed lighting and motor controls contribute to electric energy conservation and the site even contains a receptacle for electric car charging. The carwash also collects, treats, and re-uses all water and other chemicals producing biodegradable, environment friendly wash solutions.

"We are extremely enthusiastic about this new location and the opportunity to occupy a truly state of the art facility.  Special attention was given not only to the use of sustainable materials and environmentally responsible construction techniques, but to energy efficiency as well which lowers operating costs.  One example is that it has air curtains that activate when the windows open in order to regulate temperature fluctuations and to ensure a sterile bug free operation.  We are very impressed with the commitment to forward thinking construction and the use of recycled materials.  It is also a distinct advantage to be so close to the ASU campus and all that it has to offer," stated Barry Henthorn CEO.
