Prismatic Coffee

Tertia Gillett was crucial to the opening of Prismatic Coffee, one of Albuquerque's most beloved local roasteries. Her B.S. in microbiology and her eclectic work history give her a unique take on third-wave craft coffee culture and its role in Albuquerque's future. Here, Tertia shared a bit about Prismatic with Visit Albuquerque, and dished on some of her favorite coffee shops in ABQ.

Why Prismatic Coffee Chose Albuquerque

Why Albuqerque? Tertia and her business partners chose the city for a reason, she says: “Lots of the coastal cities like San Francisco and Portland and places like that have all had craft coffee for quite a long time. Now it’s growing throughout the country, but Albuquerque and New Mexico didn't really have much as far as the third-wave craft coffee roasting companies. 

My co-founder Loren and I had lived here before and knew that there was a niche to be filled here doing that. Loren really loved
Albuquerque and I thought it would be a great place to move back to.”

“The weather's great. A lot about the city is great, and there was an opening here.
The rent is affordable, and it's a very friendly city to local businesses and
entrepreneurs. 

So we moved out here and started the company with a man named Gray who also grew up in Albuquerque.”

Prismatic’s Sawmill Location

“Prismatic is actually in the Sawmill area, and there's a ton of new hip little markets going in with little boutiques and local restaurants and things like that. It feels like it is a really great area to put a roasting company in.”
