Best coffee in OrlandoHow do these rankings work?
With three locations in Orlando, our fave is the original CREDO headquarters in College Park, which feels like someone dropped a direct-trade espresso bar into your living room.
They operate an interesting name-your-price model, where you decide how much to pay for the coffee. They also source direct-trade coffee from smaller farms, which is roasted locally.
They are “set on sharing our love of coffee with our community” which is a great start when it comes to coffee. You can see that love in every single cup they serve.
They are passionate about each coffee they source, roast, and serve, and telling the stories behind them. Not sure what to drink or want to dry something new? Just ask one of their super passionate and helpful baristas.
From the second you walk into this store you know you are going to have a serious coffee experience.
It feels like walking into an Apple store with everything beautifully designed and sparkling white. The machines themselves will be like coffee porn to anybody in the industry. One not to be missed for the serious coffee lovers when in Orlando.
Their daily goal is to create drinks and experiences that engage your senses and intellect to the fullest extent – to encourage you to experience coffee beverages in new, unexpected, and flavourful ways.
They also focus on the coffee store being a community, where you can meet people and engage in meaningful conversations over one of the best cups of Orlando coffee.
Founded only two short years ago by Alex K. Tchekmeian and Iain Yeakle, Foxtail just opened its 10th store in the Orlando area, with many more stores on the horizon.
Their coffee is super consistent and their loyal band of fans have been flocking to the stores and staying with them since they opened. Their iced drinks are probably the best in the city and essential on a hot day.
Craft & Common is a welcoming neighbourhood space serving specialty coffee, craft beer, wine, session cocktails, and food. What’s not to love about a venue that is coffee shop by day and wine bar by night?
A group of seriously talented baristas who present every single drink as if it were a piece of art work (as do the chefs with the food).
They’ve been going strong since 2008 and you can definitely pick up on the eclectic and cozy European vibes when walking into the cafe. This place is something different but in the best possible way. Plus, most of the paintings & other artwork on the walls are for sale by local artists, which gives a nice artsy vibe.
