In Reno Tahoe, coffee isn’t just another drink, it’s a way of life. Our local coffee shops add a personalized spin to lattes and cappuccinos, creating unique and incredible beverages. Everything from espresso shots to French press coffee and pour over techniques make up the caffeine choices in our community. Check out these trendy coffee spots you have to try while in town.
Lighthouse Coffee began with one location in Sparks, but have expanded three locations in the Reno-Sparks area. Their second location brought a specialty coffee shop to south Reno, which was craving a local coffee shop, and their third spot overlooks the Sparks Marina. The south Reno store offers French press, pour overs and reverse siphon, each of which gives a different flavor, texture and coffee drinking experience. Their coffee is freshly roasted and you can even buy beans to enjoy at home.
Located inside one of Reno’s newest hangouts, The Basement, Global Coffee is reinventing what it means to enjoy a cup of joe, while creating a culture of collaboration with their neighboring local merchants. Friendly baristas make and serve heartwarming drinks with cool names such as The Winnemocha and The American-WOAH. Discover your new favorite warm beverage!
Whether you find yourself craving a hot brewed coffee in the colder months, or an iced one to enjoy on the patio on a warm day, Höma’ge can make it happen. No two drinks will ever be the same thanks to the shop’s innovative coffee making techniques. Try their Latte Miel with an eye-catching design or their Iced Dirty Chai Latte (meaning it has a double shot of espresso) to keep you feeling awake all day long.
Dedicated to the pursuit of all things coffee, Old World’s caffeinated drinks range from specialty drinks to hand-brewed items tailored to your liking. Try their perfect combination of milk and espresso with a simple but delicious cappuccino, or experience the Vanilla Lavender Latte for a flavor unlike any other you’ve tasted before. Purchase their brand coffee in store or by visiting their site.
This undeniably cute spot is a favorite for Reno locals. The Purple Bean adds a little something special to classic caffeinated drinks while still giving a nod to the cozy coffee drinking feel. The best part about this coffeehouse is it has drive-thru and if you bring your dog, he or she will get a complimentary treat just for coming along! Add an extra shot of espresso, soy or even protein to your drink to make it all your own. All drinks are available hot or iced.
Reno’s coffee scene is experiencing a serious jolt in growth, with many local shops roasting their own coffee beans. Some area roasteries include Hub Coffee Roasters, Old World Coffee Lab, Magpie Coffee Roasters and Wood-Fire Roasted Coffee Company.
