PHOENIX (CBS5) -
If you're thirsty for a cup of coffee, you've got plenty of choices in the Valley. And now in central Phoenix, you've got one more option, and some customers are pretty upset about it.
After four years of serving coffee and pastries on the corner of 7th Street and Osborn, Urban Beans owner Virginia Senior said she learned the importance of spending close to home to keep money in the local economy.
"We buy our eggs from a small farm in Tonopah, Chile Acres, we buy our granola from a small bakery, Bread Basket," Senior said.
But now, the real battle begins.
"Starbucks coming in on the corner, not my first choice," Senior said.
So some movers and shakers in Phoenix organized a day of appreciation for customers to come in and order a cup of Joe from the local guy.
"It's not a protest of them opening, it's just a show of support," Senior said.
"I know it'll pull people from here to there which is really a shame," said customer Charles Moore.
We even ran into Phoenix Mercury player Diana Taurasi, who said she chose Urban Beans over Starbucks for a reason. But she said it may not be such a bad thing.
"It could help Urban Bean a lot to have competition right up the street and bring more people to this area, so it could be good in the long run," Taurasi said.
"It's par for the course," said Bill Sandweg with Copper Star Coffee. He said he's sandwiched in between two Starbucks shops, and the secret is getting back to basics.
"We've all been here for a long time and it's because we give better service, better quality," Sandweg said.
We reached out to Starbucks and a spokesperson said they are proud to be a part of the community here and believe the market is big enough for the two of them.
