Venturing Off My Coffee Routine In Marietta

Marietta Coffee Company, 1598 Roswell Rd, Marietta, GA.

I have been a Starbucks Gold Member since they started their star rewards program. If you don’t know what that is, a Gold Member receives Starbucks perks. You earn a free drink, food item or merchandise by collecting stars based on your purchases. With three of them near my home in Marietta, Georgia it’s pretty easy to get Starbucks any time. When I travel though I rarely get coffee at a Starbucks. I like trying the local coffee shops because I can discover a little about the culture of a city sitting amongst its people, drinking the local brew. Since I made a resolution to live this year with more intention, I decided to intentionally venture off my normal coffee routine in my hometown. In doing, so I have found some pretty special coffee shops right around the corner.

If you too are coffee lover, and want to branch out of your daily Starbucks run. Then check out these local coffee shops in Marietta. Don’t see your favorite Marietta coffee shop? Give it a shout out in the comments.

Cool Beans coffee roaster.

Cool Beans Coffee Roasters is a local treasure on the historic Marietta Square. Cross the tracks at Mill Street, and you might smell the aroma of roasting coffee beans as Cool Beans roast all their beans on site. Looking to brew your own coffee. You can bring home coffee beans from around the world with their high-quality selection. Check out another option, a Cool Beans signature non-coffee drink is their Mexican Hot Chocolate. It's a combination of delicious chocolate with a kick cayenne pepper. Try one of their savory almond or chocolate croissants with your drink. Even though it's a popular hangout there is plenty of seating indoors and out, but my favorite seats are the front window nooks.
