Cozy up from the blast of cold at one of these unique places to grab a cup of joe. Here’s five places to espresso your love for the bean in the Mountain State.
At Hot Cup Coffee in Logan, Michael Cline and his crew serve up coffee and culture—every stripe of music, poetry, comedy, and more. They just celebrated its eighth anniversary last month with an Avengers skit, complete with fireworks and soundtrack (304.752.6500).
Australian native Brendan Finn and his Grindstone Coffeeology truck Bonnie have been a big hit in the region. Finn set up a brick and mortar spot on 8th Street in 2018—Grindstone Central, and just completed an eye-popping shipping container build-out at the cafe this fall. Try a Flat White with Coconut Milk in this unique and cozy, contemporary space (606.369.7529).
She’s Lori, he’s Joe and together the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania-native couple are the dynamic duo behind Lori’s Cup of Joe. This unique spot is a cute, log cabin, drive-through that serves up coffee, pastries, lunch, and now in season, daily hot soups (304.775.4059).
A coffee roaster and a potter met at a beard contest and the rest is history. At this co-op, you can grab house-roasted coffee, breakfast, and lunch. Enjoy a brew—coffee or craft beers—while hand-building or wheel-throwing pottery at Joe N’ Throw Co-Op (304.816.4390).
Since May 2006, the Dolan’s Wild Bean has been serving up “darn good coffee for darn good people.” Get a cup of “Mud,” which is dark and strong, locally roasted Red Rooster Coffee with breakfast or lunch. Both of which come locally sourced and with many vegetarian options. Stay for the nightlife as regional and national act bands play the Bean (304.675-3738).
