Our Favorite Coffee Pit Stops - Texas

Posted by Miranda Haney on

It's true what they say: everything is bigger in Texas, especially the amount of time it'll take you to drive from one major city to the next. Whether you're making the trek up to Texarkana or just to the Hill Country for the weekend, you don't have to settle for Buc-ee's coffee (not that we don't love Buc-ee's - it's just, they're not known for their cappuccinos, per se). 

Here are our favorite coffee pit stops around the Lone Star state and what to order. 

P.S. - If you know of a cute little Texas cafe that could use a coffee glow up, please refer them to our wholesale program! Good beans go a long way when it comes to crafting delicious beverages, and Greater Goods is known for having the best beans around.
