The calendar might be declaring that it’s spring, but Mother Nature seems to have other plans. While we are certainly hoping for some warmer weather soon, you never know when the “last snow” is actually the last snow of the season. We’ve compiled a list of a few of Minneapolis’ top coffee spots that will warm you up on the inside while you wait for it to warm up outside.
Five Watt Coffee
Calling all coffee nerds. Let’s be honest, if you haven’t heard of Five Watt Coffee you don’t even deserve to call yourself a coffee nerd. This local coffee house will turn even the darkest of cups to their specialty cup ways. Five Watt Coffee approaches each cup they make like a finely crafted cocktail. We suggest trying the Kingfield made with vanilla, big watt coriander bitters, espresso, milk and black Hawaiian sea salt, or the Busy Beaver made with maple syrup, blackstrap bitters, cinnamon, molasses drizzle, cracked pepper, espresso and milk. For those who still insist on a plain cuppa joe, Five Watt has you covered too. Simply pick your favorite bean from their rotating selection, sit back and enjoy.
When Mary Hogan Bard opened her coffee shop in 2011, she set out to share her love of coffee with the city using beans from all over the world, but roasting them right here in the Midwest. Claddagh Coffee has received a significant amout of press since opening its doors. Click here to see a list of their recent press mentions. Stop on in and try the shop’s namesake, The Claddagh made with espresso, Irish cream, dark chocolate and steamed milk, or the Drop Kick Murphy, made with espresso, Coca-cola and cream served over ice and tell Mary we said hi.
Dogwood Coffee Bar
If you are looking for a quick in-and-out cup of joe, Dogwood is probably not the place for you. Dogwood prides itself on finding the right farmers to buy their beans from and taking the time to learn about and craft the perfect roasting process for each bean. Each cup of coffee made to order, and while it might take a bit longer, your wait will be rewarded with one of the smoothest cups in town. Check out their website for home brewing guides or stop by and taste for yourself.
