Best Spots for a Great Cup of Coffee in Gainesville

Visit these Local Coffee Shops in Gainesville, Florida

When you move to or visit a new city, one of the best ways to get a feel for the local scene is to visit the coffee houses. Gainesville is home to many unique local coffee shops that focus on providing both quality coffee and inspired atmospheres.

At Sweetwater Organic Coffee, our mission is to change the world, one great cup of coffee at a time. We roast our coffee on Main Street in downtown Gainesville, and have always sourced our beans through sustainable partnerships with international farming cooperatives. We pay higher than Fair Trade established prices to ensure that the cooperatives we work with are paid a price that allows them to develop their communities around their products.

These local partners are proud to support us in our mission. Visit any of the spots on this list to get a taste of Gainesville—our coffee and our vibe!
