Who We Are

Canyons Coffee is the premier mobile espresso bar and specialty coffee catering service in Utah. We serve guests at our coffee shop in West Jordan and from our coffee carts at events around Salt Lake City and Park City.

Not only do we make great coffee, but we create an experience for our guests that leaves them feeling honored, welcomed, and served. We believe that is the difference between serving coffee and serving people.

How Canyons Coffee Started

Salt Lake City has a lot to offer — beautiful mountain views, outdoor sports, and a whole lot more. But when we moved here, we felt something was missing. We didn’t realize how much we had been spoiled by the booming coffee scene in our hometown of Kansas City. It wasn’t just the excellent coffee that we missed, but the atmosphere and community that those coffee shops nurtured.

Over the years, we’ve been the owners of multiple businesses. From fashion to web design and home decor, we always knew we would pursue the entrepreneurial lifestyle. But many of our businesses were temporary. We’d get them off the ground and sell them to new owners (or close them), but all that time, we knew we wanted to find something more permanent — a business venture that allowed us to serve people.

The idea of Canyons Coffee came to us in 2020 during the covid-19 pandemic. Coffee and community are both vital parts of our lives. We thought, what if we could bring midwestern coffee culture to Salt Lake City and cultivate authentic relationships at the same time?

We combined Maddy’s entrepreneurial spirit with Steven’s experience in digital marketing to create a business plan we couldn’t stop thinking about. We would launch as a coffee cart company with the intention of one day opening a coffee shop. In 2022 we served coffee at our first event – the Climbing World Cup in Salt Lake City. We soon had the privilege of serving at events like Sundance Film Festival and the NBA All Star game, as well as collaborating with some of the world’s most influential companies such as Adobe, Fortune, American Express, Hyatt Regency, Sotheby’s, Chevron, LinkedIn, Acura, and many more.

Opening Our First Coffee Shop

In February of 2024 we opened the doors of our first coffee shop in West Jordan, UT. We offer many drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, americanos, macchiatos, and more. Our emphasis is on specialty coffee. We put so much time and thought into selecting the right beans, equipment, glassware, and even a water filtration system to ensure that your coffee tastes fantastic every time you stop in. We believe that West Jordan deserves excellent coffee, and we are thankful that we get to be a part of that story.

We are so excited to be a part of this community, and we are deeply grateful to everyone who has been a part of the Canyons Coffee story! We invite you to join us for specialty coffee and authentic community.

We consider it an honor to bring the luxurious experience of specialty coffee to our guests.

With gratitude,

Steven and Maddy Swank
