It’s no secret that Americans love their coffee. The United States coffee culture has been growing for years, but within the past several years, the world of coffee has taken over. Everyone is drinking coffee, and let’s be honest, probably taking a picture for Instagram too. Celebrities are always getting their photos taken, and more often than not, we’re always seeing photos of them carrying around their coffee.
Coffee has become a symbol of pop culture. Certain coffee shops have even developed a “hipster” vibe. Since there are so many coffee shops around the US, coffee shops are having to get creative in order to stand out from the rest. The atmosphere of the coffee shop is crucial to success. Having celebrities visit your coffee shops definitely helps!
Here are seven favorite celebrity coffee places in the US.
When most people think of coffee, they think of Starbucks. Starbucks has become such a well known brand around not just the United States, but the entire world, especially since social media got started. Britney Spears is very well known to frequent Starbucks. In an interview, she mentioned that the strawberry Frappuccino was her usual order.
As coffee culture grows, more unique coffee shops are opening. Urth Caffe was the first organic coffee shop to open in America. This attracted a lot of attention and gave a high quality perception of the shop. Urth Caffe is well known for being in the HBO hit show Entourage. They have used the shop several times throughout the show, so that makes it a cool experience for fans. They have several locations in California, including west Hollywood, downtown, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica. The locals tend to favor the west Hollywood location.
New Yorkers live an upbeat, on-the-go lifestyle, and Mud brews their coffee strong, making it a popular location for locals and celebrities that are always on the go around the city. Mud is known for its signature orange cups. It also doubles as a mobile truck, so it has a unique aspect that caters to an even larger crowd of coffee lovers.
The Frothy Monkey Coffeehouse
The Frothy Monkey is located in a quaint little neighborhood in Nashville, Tennessee, which is Taylor Swift’s hometown. Several boyfriends ago when her and Jake Gyllenhaal were a thing, they made a few appearances there. The Frothy Monkey is known for their locally roasted coffee, and boy is it top quality! Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman, and other country singers have also been seen enjoying the brews here.
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is known for their signature purple straws and large amount of celebrity sightings. This shop has a big celebrity clientele, which also attracts a bigger clientele in general. There are two popular locations in LA, but celebrities tend to favor the Los Feliz location because it is more discreet and free from paprazzi.
Some people consider politicians to be celebrities, some people don’t. Whether you do or do not, the Caribou Coffee shop on Pennsylvania Avenue location has been covered a lot in the media. The Obama administration officials are often seen there and are usually drinking lattes. A “depth charge” is another popular drink for this shop, which is just simply coffee topped with an espresso.
Ninth Street Espresso
This low-key coffee shop in New York City is used to getting some famous traffic. The East Village location draws in quite a large and diverse crowd, ranging from singers to actors to rock-n-rollers. Ninth Street Espresso has been known to be one of the best coffee shops in the United States, and definitely a celebrity favorite. The shop actually has a “use cell phone at a minimum” rule, so if you’re looking for a place to get coffee and check your Facebook feed, try Starbucks. This shop has a relaxing, under-the-radar vibe where celebrities can stay and enjoy instead of just come and go.
