Calling all coffee lovers, there’s a trending coffee shop here in the desert! Koffi has three locations throughout the valley, two in Palm Springs and one in Rancho Mirage. According their website, “Koffi has a full menu of pastries, bagels, sandwiches, and specialty foods.”
The menu includes coffee house classics like muffins, cinnamon rolls and breakfast bagels. They bring a new element to the classic coffee house with low calorie, gluten free and sugar free options to suit the needs of any coffee lover.
This locally owned and operated coffee house is comparable to coffee favorites like Starbucks and the Coffee Bean. The average price for a large coffee is around $4. The Rancho Mirage location is just a short drive from campus, located on Highway 111 across from the Audi and Range Rover dealership. This shop has espresso, teas, hot, iced and frozen drinks available. The staff is friendly and helpful in helping new customers find what drink they want. In-house roasting and certified organic brews give their brand a sweet unique taste.
The food and beverages have a wide variety range for a good price. From muffins to salads, everything is under ten dollars. Whether studying, eating or just relaxing after class, Koffi is a great environment for students.
The calm atmosphere and enjoyable beverages make this small coffee shop stand out. The small wait time beats most larger chain coffee houses, perfect for anyone in a hurry. Put a twist on your normal order by getting an organic cold brew. For people who don’t like coffee, try one of the hot chocolates or teas. Hot chocolates come in a variety of flavors including traditional, Belgian, or coconut.
Don’t let the name Koffi mislead, they have a large selection of teas, both iced and hot. Black, green and more exotic flavors like hibiscus and yerba mate are only a few of the choices.
Let this cute coffee shop be your next stop for coffee, tea or that afternoon pick me up after class.
