Coffee Beans

I admit, I drink way too much coffee even though I drink less now that I once did.  At one time I was putting down 8 cups a day of sock juice (brewed coffee) since it was entirely too convenient. I could fill the french press and drink away and not even realize I was on that sixth cup before I had my eighth. I am also somewhat of an artsy-fartsy coffee connoisseur. I make soy lattes throughout the day, though I cut myself off at about 5pm, and occasionally douse them with this flavoring or that syrup.

There are those days when I’m not home and occasionally feel I like throwing down $4 on a cup of coffee. Those days don’t come often as I am pretty tight with my cash. I have been working on a list of coffee houses around Nashville to get your fix and all of those on the list include soymilk in their milk selections and one, DrinkHaus, also offers rice milk and sometimes almond milk.

I always prefer the local coffee houses. To me it always tastes better and I like not knowing exactly what to expect. I always search out a local coffee house when I travel and usually take home a pound from the places I like. Of course Starbucks is on every street but why go to the corporate bean when you can get your swill from a local coffee joint?

If your favorite coffee isn’t on the list let me know and tell me why it’s your favorite.

  2. Denise in TN says:

    the new Flatrock Cafe on Nolensville Rd near I 440 .. so don’t have the correct address..
    They just open up this week 11/16…
    Its a great get together place for folks here in South Nashville!

    Cafe CoCo by the new La Paz location and only a few seconds from Centennial Park…if you enjoy taking part in musical improv and jamming along with college hipsters, it’s your place. I know I do. They cater to a plethora of students and locals with dietary restrictions i.e. veganism or vegetarianism.

    Just found this post. have you tried Roast Inc. in crieve hall? They make, in my opinion, the best cup of coffee in nashville, and they’ve only been open for about a year.

      I tried a Chemex coffee from them while at the Franklin Farmers Market one day. It was a good roast. I haven’t been to their store yet but plan on making it by there soon.
