Atlanta, GA - Coffee shops play a vital role in the everyday lives of busy Atlanta people, whether it's ordering that all-important first cup of the morning, grabbing a lunchtime while taking advantage of an hour of free WiFi, or seeing a buddy for lattes.

Everyone has a preference for their coffee and Atlanta offers a variety of excellent coffee places that you must taste especially if you're a visitor.

Here are some of the best places to get an espresso, cappuccino, or a cup of black coffee.

  • Bellwood Coffee

Bellwood Coffee, a new Westside coffee shop and roaster, is located in a modest retail and office building in the Bolton neighborhood of northwest Atlanta. Bellwood sells its locally roasted beans and now provides local delivery and a subscription service in addition to coffee, espresso, mochas, and lattes.

  • Portrait Coffee

Portrait Coffee, an Atlanta-based roastery, has launched its first permanent shop in the West End. The new coffee shop will be located in the Lottie Watkins Building on Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard. Founders John Onwuchekwa, Marcus Hollinger, Khalid Smith, Shawndra Onwuchekwa, Aaron Fender, and Erin Fender strive to improve and expand Atlanta's specialty coffee industry as a Black-owned coffee company.

  • Brash Coffee

Brash works closely with coffee growers in El Salvador to ensure that beans are supplied fairly and ethically. Brash, which is built in a recycled shipping container in the Westside Provisions District, serves everything from pour-overs to drip coffee, and Emerald City Bagels selections in the morning. A second Brash is within the rebuilt Atlanta History Center in Buckhead, across from Souper Jenny, and a third is on Peachtree Road in Midtown.

  • Urban Grind

This long-running Marietta Street coffee shop first opened its door in 2007 and has been a popular spot for locals, students from Georgia Tech and Georgia State. Urban Grind sells paninis, cakes, and pastries in addition to coffee and coffee drinks. Open mic nights including comedians, music, and poetry are held here. The shop is temporarily limiting the number of people who can enter.

  • East Pole Coffee Co.

Since its opening in 2017, this Atlanta coffee shop has quickly become a favorite among caffeine enthusiasts. The bright and spacious business in the Armour and Piedmont Heights districts has lots of seating, including a terrace out front and floor-to-ceiling bleachers in the complex's lobby. Public tastings and cuppings are also available at East Pole.
