    The beans used here are mostly from Africa. The gorgeously landscaped patio with boxwood hedges and outdoor seating is quintessential Charleston.

    The Baristas here are awesome. They don't mind playing the 'create-a-drink' game which has made my stay in Charleston awesome!

    Favorite coffee spot in town. I miss the live bluegrass though. Hazelnut or rasberry iced lattes are my go-tos.

    Cool spot. Sadly, they do not have outlets inside and they have wifi hours, which means their wifi is like happy hour. You can only get the hookup for a few hours during the day.
