Outside of being passionate about being the best mortgage company in the entire world, we are pretty passionate about coffee. Sean spent many years as a coffee roaster and Mitch spent many years spending money at coffee shops.

Coffee is a big part of our everyday here at ATL Mortgage. Our ability to close loans at lightning speed is directly related to our consumption of great coffee. Maybe you’re new to the city or maybe you’re tired of the mediocre cups of coffee you’e settled for. Either way, we have come up with a list of our favorite coffee shops in Atlanta.

What makes a good coffee shop? There are a few factors that we considered when finding listing our personal favorites. First and most importantly how is there drip coffee? Is this a shop that you can go to every day, grab a coffee, get in your car, and before your first sip trust that it’s going to be incredible? Second, how is their espresso? Maybe you’re in the mood for a cappuccino or just need a macchiato to get you through a busy Saturday morning. We wanted to find shops that have great espresso and baristas that know how to pull their shots. The final factor we considered was an aesthetic workspace. We love getting out of the office and working from a great coffee shop, so a shop that has attractive places you can post up and crush work is important.

1: Rev Coffee Roasters

Location: 1680 Spring Rd SE B, Smyrna, GA 30080

Rev is our local favorite. You can find us grabbing a great cup of coffee there daily. Incredibly nice staff and has a great environment to work in. If you get hungry there are plenty of great snack and food options. Rev sponsors local community events, so it is a great way to get connected to Smyrna.

2: East Pole Coffee

Location: 255 Ottley Drive, Ste. 105, Atlanta, GA 30324

East Pole’s blend of modern and industrial vibes is an aesthetic dream. Their coffee and espresso taste as wonderful as their environment is beautiful. They were voted best in Georgia by Food & Wine.

3: Chrome Yellow Trading Company

Location:501 Edgewood Ave SE, Atlanta, Ga. 30312

A coffee and retail hybrid that is perfect for grabbing a great cup of coffee in a cool part of town. Retail brands include Rogue Territory, Raleigh Workshop Denim, 3sixteen, Tanner Goods, Hackwith Design, Ali Golden, Marisa Mason, Prospector Co., Mazama ceramics, Poketo notebooks and more.

4: Spiller Park

Location: 2929 N. Druid Hills Rd. Atlanta, Ga. 30329

Spiller Park offers great coffee, great food, great service, and has a great workspace. Toco Hills is Spiller Park’s second location and you can find us there working regularly. Their avocado egg toast is top notch and is an absolute must for a productive morning!

5: The Ice Kitchen

Location: 840 Ernest W Barrett Pkwy NW, Ste 300, Kennesaw, GA 30144

If you are up North of Atlanta you should definitely hit up The Ice Kitchen. Their espresso is great and you can’t top the combination of rolled ice cream and coffee. It’s a great place to spend an evening getting work completed.
