Looking for the best cup of coffee in Spartanburg? We asked our readers where the best cup of joe is served and our readers had a clear favorite! Kidding Around’s Melanie had to go check some of these out for herself.

The Grind

Tired parents have been depending on coffee for getting them through the day since the 15th century. This life sustaining elixir is easy to make at home, but don’t things always taste better when someone else makes them for us? Our readers feel very strongly about this lifeline beverage and they wasted no time letting us know where they love to go for their coffee. 

I admire people who can make it through a long day without a shot of coffee. I can remember my first cup of coffee like it was yesterday. It was also the best cup I’ve ever had, although I’ll admit I might be romanticizing it’s memory. It was on a flight out of the country and I was only twelve. That first sip, later bloomed into a love of all things coffee, specifically a coffee made to perfection.

I just happend to find that perfect cup in the kichen of a friend. Whenever I go to visit her, she makes me the most awesome iced coffee drinks imaginable. It’s probably good she lives in Atlanta, or we’d have a problem.

Since not everyone is lucky enough to have a Dori in their lives, we bring you the next best thing. Here is a list of coffee bars that made the grade In Spartanburg.
