If you’re one of those people who can’t get through the day without their morning cup of coffee – and perhaps one to power you through the afternoon, too – then you’re in luck. Irvine is home to plenty of delicious options for your cup of Joe. Here are some local favorites.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Freshly roasted coffee beans in small batches is what you’ll find at this coffee shop. Customers rave about their cold brew coffee, made with beans from Bali and Ethiopia, as well as a fusion of chicory, and steeped for 20 hours to get as much flavor out of the beans as possible. You’ll also want to try their Cafe Latte, with fresh espresso and steamed milk, or a classic Americano. And if you need a break from coffee, try one of their many varieties of tea.
Kona Loa Coffee
Stewarded by founders who have a deep love and respect for Hawaiian coffee, cuisine, and culture, this coffee shop features coffee from Kona, widely recognized as some of the best coffee in the entire world, thanks to the rich, volcanic soil from which it grows. Some of their most popular drinks include the classic Iced Caramel Macchiato, the Toasted S’more Latte, and the Crème Brûlée drink.
The Lost Bean
This company’s mission is to provide customers with the best and most sustainable coffee experience possible. Their “plastic” products, for instance, are made from corn and biodegrade in 45-60 days. And all the classic coffee drinks you have come to love are organic, which means healthier for you and the environment.
