2. Merit Coffee 

Merit Coffee has two sleek Austin stores that are ideal for a pick-me-up. All of their beans are roasted in their San Antonio warehouse, with their specialty beans coming from a single farm or even from a specific area on the farm (micro-terroir), so they are limited in quantity and superior in quality.

3. Greater Goods Coffee Roasting Co.

Greater Goods serves a carefully curated selection of specialty coffees from around the world, from Columbia to Kenya. Their unique single origins and laid-back blends are perfectly roasted in small batches in order to get the most flavour from the beans.

4. Little Brother 

From the same highly skilled team behind Better Half (listed above), this retro-styled coffee and cocktail bar is the place to be for both early mornings and late nights. It might only fit about eight people, but the coffees are so good you won’t mind the squish. Take it to-go if the four seater bar is full.
