I don’t mean to knock on chain coffee shops or anything – I LOVE a good salted cold foam cold brew, but there is just something about a hometown coffee shop that draws me in.. In college, I was so loyal to my favorite coffee shop that I sat in my graduation ceremony holding a cup of their sugar-free spiced dirty chai with oat milk in one hand, my diploma in the other. There are so many things that make small, local coffee shops special. The people that are always coming and going, that are vastly different but somehow all so familiar. The pride of being loyal to a favorite drink that only that one coffee shop does right – you all have that specific drink in mind right now, I would bet on it. The surge of productivity that only a local coffee shop’s atmosphere can provide. And it’s also the joy you get from being able to support a local business. Hometown coffee shops just feel so personal and intimate. If you’ve been wanting to test out a few new coffee shops in your area but don’t know where to start, here’s a list of some local places in the Sacramento area and a few drink ideas to get you started!
