Drink Up: Savannah’s Coffee Culture


By Charity Hayes | Folks in Savannah take their coffee very seriously. You’ll find a variety of quaint shops throughout the city offering organic roast, lattes, rich espresso, cold brews or just a good ole cup of joe.

Our Savannah coffee houses have also been recognized nationally. The Paris Market Cafe was named “The Most Beautiful Coffee Shop in Georgia” by Architectural Digest. Other shops have been recognized for their outstanding customer service, such as Bitty & Beau’s Cafe. Bitty & Beau’s employs people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We have to say, we’ve never experienced better customer service.

Whatever your poison is, you’re sure to find it in Savannah.

These Savannah coffee roasters are in the heart of the city. They source their coffee in season so you’re getting a pure, fresh tasting brew.

Black Rifle Coffee Shop

Coffee and shopping! What could be better? Serving up excellent brews and lattes, k-cups and a variety of coffee to take home, they are also home to the infamous Nine Line Apparel.

The Sentient Bean

Often referred to as The Bean by the locals serves up fair-trade organic coffee, as is most produce and most of the staple ingredients in their prepared food are organic. Committed to using locally grown ingredients as much as possible, don’t fry anything, and make most of the food from scratch.

We hope you’ll check out some of these great spots for yourself while in town, or for you locals, go check one out today! All serve up delicious coffee, lattes, teas and a variety of treats as you can see. They each have their own vibe going also.
