Just Love Coffee - A Real Gem in the Boro

If you live in the 'boro like I do, you know our coffee shop options are limited to a couple independents and one major chain. Well friends, that has changed. 

Just Love Coffee is not only a great environment to hang with friends, get some work done, or just waste the day away, but the coffee is actually pretty great. Roasted in house, they have several roasts to choose from and only do the pour over method after 10am - which results in a purer cup of coffee. For those who prefer a more fancy cup of joe - the espresso bar has all the syrups and sweet additions you would expect. 

I prefer my coffee iced and while it took me a couple of tries to find the right roast - the Peruvian is ahhhmazing iced - nutty, smooth and delicious! The baristas were super helpful with my quest, suggesting I try many options before I found the right one. 

The environment is laid back with vinyl records playing in the background....everything from Ray Charles to Patsy Cline. There are quarter arcade games from the 80's in the loft upstairs for the kiddos and kids at heart. Also, there are comfy chairs for loungers and large tables for group meetings. 

Overall, Just Love is for the coffee snob and the coffee novice - a great place for both to meet. And you can feel great every time you visit because with every purchase you make a charitable organization gets part of the proceeds. According to their website, in their first two years of business Just Love has given over $200,000 to adopting families, non-profits, and the arts. 

Just Love Coffee Roasters is located at 129 MTCS Drive and is open Monday through Saturday, 7am to 9pm.
