If you’re one of those folks who just can’t function until you’ve had your first (or fifth) cup of coffee than you’ll fit right in here in Durham, NC. A recent poll named Durham the United States’ “Most Caffeinated City,” beating out perennial perky favorites such as Portland and Seattle. It’s no surprise that Durham has a deep love for the coffee bean as we have two local roasters that make brews you’ll want to have every morning. Joe Van Gogh roasts in Hillsborough but you can grab a mug of joe made from their delicious beans here in Durham. Another roaster, Counter Culture Coffee, not only roasts their beans in the area but also offers a coffee education program and coffee cuppings every Friday at their training centers.
|Whether it takes black coffee, a cappuccino,|
or something even stronger to get you
going, Durham has it!
At our luxury Durham bed and breakfast we will start your morning off right with a gourmet breakfast (with bottomless coffee refills!) but if you’re like the rest of us in Durham you’ll need another cup before noon and maybe another after! Here are some of our favorite places to get your fix:
Scratch Bakery: The ideal spot to grab a cappuccino and pastry, this downtown bakery features Intelligentsia Coffee
Intrepid Life: This coffee shop near Duke’s east campus is a non-profit operation where you can use your love of caffeine to support programs and services that help veterans transition to civilian life
Cocoa Cinnamon: For something a little different check out the espresso drinks at this funky spot which also features single-origin sipping chocolate
