How do you start your day? Many of us start our day, struggling to get out of bed, getting ready for the day and then heading to our favorite coffee shop. Once we leave that coffee shop, we’re ready to take on the day. But sometimes, switching things up is nice and while we don’t need to lose the coffee, we should try different coffee shops. There are plenty of coffee shops in Orange County that are loved by many and you can become one of them.
Try one of the many different coffee shops in Orange County, especially the ones you haven’t tried before so you can learn what good coffee really is like.
Hooper & Burr | Santa Ana
Becoming a popular coffee shop is more difficult as it may sound. Not only is location important but so is the actual coffee and other offerings available. Hooper & Burr has amazing coffee but also great offerings like avocado toast. The menu is simple when it comes to coffee but that’s because coffee is simply amazing without all the fancy names.
Hidden House Coffee | San Juan Capistrano
What makes some places popular is the effort that goes into everything on the menu. At Hidden House Coffee, you’re getting gourmet coffee but you’re also getting freshly made in house pastries. But you know that a coffee shop is good when they wholesale out their blends and you can find it at hotels, businesses and other locations.
Coffee Nature | Costa Mesa
A successful business knows the true meaning of “the customer is always right.” While that doesn’t mean that the customer is literally always right, it does mean that learning from your customer base is important. Coffee Nature started in 2014 with the idea of giving people what they want and doing it in a way that is right for coffee. One example is the 8-hour process they use for cold brewing or the pour over technique. At the beginning of your day, Coffee Nature is where you want to start.
Kean Coffee | Tustin
Coffee is made in different ways all around the world and the best versions can be found at Kean Coffee. There is a variety of artisan blends from all around the world from espresso arts to teas and everything in between. The menu at Kean Coffee may be scary at first but that’s part of the fun. There are so many different things to try and who knows how many will become your favorite.
Bear Coast Coffee | San Clemente
Start with the lavender infused caramel in your coffee. You will be happy that you did. But what’s really cool about Bear Coast Coffee is that all of the flavorings and sauces are made in-house. The reason they make their own sauces and flavorings is because the goal is to not overpower the coffee, just compliment it. This goal is hard to achieve when your flavors come shipped from headquarters warehouses across the country or up north in Seattle.
Kona Loa Coffee | Mission Viejo
Have you ever heard of K
The Coffee Tale | Huntington Beach
Welcome to the place where friendship is started over a cup of coffee. Here, at The Coffee Tale in Huntington Beach, the goal is to provide you with organic coffee and tea. While you will find some old favorites on the menu, there are some special offerings available as well. Try the cold brew coffee and pair it with macaroons or the Turkish coffee with a plate of Turkish delights.
Rosetta Coffee Brewing Company | Laguna Niguel
One thing you won’t find at Rosetta Coffee Brewing Company is fanfare. The goal here is to provide you with and to shine a spotlight on the already amazing flavors of coffee. Leave the frappe and the syrup behind with natural flavors of coffee paired with handmade pastries.
Coffee Tomo | Irvine
Have you ever had a cup of hand dripped coffee? Hand dripped means that the coffee is made using a kettle and hot water by hand. This process of coffee making was made popular in Korea, China, and Japan. Hand drip allows you to control the flavor of the coffee as it is poured and it takes a lot of practice to perfect. Luckily, you won’t have to because the baristas at Coffee Tomo in Irvine already have the process perfected.
