Amarillo has been blessed with local coffee shops. So why don't we take advantage of them?

There is something magical about holding a Starbucks cup. Your problems fade away with every sip of that chestnut praline latte. (Which, by the way, is one of Starbucks' most delicious creations)

But there are so many problems with Starbucks. First of all, it's an expensive habit. Most of their drinks are over $5. Second, you're losing the opportunity to support local business when you buy coffee from Starbucks.

Luckily, there are plenty of local options in Amarillo for amazing coffee.

    Evocation is the perfect place for people who are into the science of espresso. They are a micro-roastery, so their coffee is always freshly roasted.

    Marshall Coffee Company

    Marshall might be small, but their coffee packs a big punch. With flavors like coconut cream and golden pecan, you might expect the coffee to be expensive, but it's one of the least expensive options in Amarillo.
