Downtown Billings Montana

Mazevo, pronounced muh-ZAY-vo, means “gather” in Greek, and that’s just what owner Damion Taylor wants his patrons to do. Mazevo is open from 6 am to 9 pm Monday through Thursday and Damion plans to stay open until 3 am on Friday and Saturday nights to catch the nightlife crowd. He’s also featuring local artists’ work in the space and will take part in the next ArtWalk Downtown Billings.

The location features a table for two, a couple of comfy leather chairs and two bars with seating. It’s cozy and inviting, two things that made this patron want to hang around for a while.

Which brings me to the coffee — Mazevo offers the traditional lattes, mochas, and espressos, but also a few unique things, including affogato, a bowl of ice cream with espresso (YUM!) and even an espresso milkshake. There are several blended offerings (vanilla bean and salted caramel caught my eye), along with filtered coffee, and my favorite-named portion of the menu – “Not Coffee.” Damion says their coffee is single-origin, meaning the beans come from the same farm and/or the same region of the world. For instance, his espresso is Ethiopian.

Mazevo’s coffee is air roasted in-house and is pretty well-known around Billings. The coffee is created under the name LiveHisLove and is used in several coffee houses in churches in Billings, including Faith Chapel. Damion says that business is a ministry to help several causes like My Fight, which seeks to fight extreme poverty. LiveHisLove coffee can now be purchased at Mazevo.

Another fun offering is Mazevo’s baked goods. They’re made in-house (except for the bagels) and include breakfast sandwiches (one of which is on a honey wheat English muffin) and their cinnamon and caramel rolls.

With in-house coffee roasting and baked goods, Mazevo is a wonderful spot to stop in for a cup of coffee and a treat, or grab one to-go on your way through downtown Billings.

Mazevo Coffee Roasters is located at 2719 1st Ave. N.
