Best Atlanta Coffee Shops
Atlanta: home of the 2016 SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America) Conference. For those of you coffee aficionados who will be out there to attend, we’ve curated a list of where to find the best coffee in Atlanta…outside the convention, that is.
145 Auburn Ave NE STE A,
Atlanta, GA 30305
Condesa is a unique shop; the espresso bar is tucked away in the corner and the menu features content ratio visuals for ordering guidance. These baristas pull beautiful shots of Counter Culture Coffee on a La Marzocco GB5 and are knowledgeable about, not only coffee, but their simple pastry menu as well.
Dancing Goats Coffee Bar
650 North Avenue NE
Atlanta, GA 30308
Can’t choose if you want to enjoy your coffee inside or outside? Well, at Dancing Goats Coffee Bar, you don’t have to choose! This unique corner shop curates an ideal blend of natural light, simple design, indoor + outdoor seating, and, of course, great coffee. You’ll find Batdorf & Bronson Coffee brewed in a variety of different methods here; which will you choose?
510 Flat Shoals Ave SE,
Atlanta, GA 30305
Joe’s fosters the second-wave coffee spirit while serving coffee made with third-wave brew precision and bean quality (thank you, Intelligentsia). The shop features a horseshoe bar and exposed brick; the vibe is tops. If you find yourself in East Atlanta, you best not miss Joe’s.
Revelator Coffee Company
691 14th St NW,
Atlanta, GA 30316
Revelator Coffee Co has established in a handful of shops in the Southeast, all of which serve coffee from their very own Revelator Coffee Co beans. The minimalism and cleanliness of the space allows the coffee to be the focal point of the experience. If you’re looking for the best coffee in Atlanta, Revelator is a stop you must make.
West Egg Café
1100 Howell Mill Rd,
Atlanta, GA 30318
West Egg Café is far more than just a coffee shop; they’re a café, bar, restaurant, and bakery all-in-one. They serve Batdorf & Bronson Coffee (which we know and love) and as a bonus for our list, this spot doubles as a recommended dinner spot! Stop by West Egg for, well, really any gustatory desire.
