Discover Your New Favorite Coffee in Kingsport

There’s just something about coffee that makes a chilly winter morning so much better. The comforting aroma, the warmth of a cup in your hands, the first delicious sip … if you’re a coffee drinker, you know all about that glorious feeling.

But while hot coffee is the most widely consumed format, iced coffee is rapidly rising in popularity, especially among younger generations. So, if you’re one of the 52% of Americans* who are more likely to skip a shower than your morning cup of coffee, hot or cold, we have good news for you. Kingsport has dozens of places where you can get your coffee fix, and many are independently owned, meaning you can feel good about supporting small businesses at the same time. Here are 5 local coffee shops we love:

Hibbert-Davis Urban Brews

Whether it’s a simply delicious Americano or a lightly refreshing coffee soda, Hibbert-Davis offers a variety of hot and cold coffee options. All their coffees and espressos are 100% certified organic. For coffee aficionados, the shop offers a barista bar where you can watch an expert grind and handcraft your brew while you wait.

Must try: Organic Lavender Latte

For a unique twist on a classic, try the Organic Lavender Latte from Hibbert-Davis. Lavender simple syrup adds a bit of sweetness and a lovely floral aroma to espresso and your choice of steamed milk.

Early Bird’s Coffee Company

Early Bird’s is an espresso cart and mobile coffee shop that travels around to schools and businesses throughout Kingsport. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram to see their schedule.

You can get some of Early Bird’s menu items at several locations around town, such as Downtown Plant Bar, Bagel Exchange, and Sweet Spoon in the Fort Henry Mall. Early Bird’s also caters events like weddings, festivals, and fairs, and is often a vendor at trade shows.

The owners expect to have a few semi-permanent locations by the end of this summer for drive-through or walk-up service, complemented by a café-style mobile trailer where guests can sit down and enjoy their drinks in comfort.

Must try: Cold Brew Macchiato

This caramel vanilla cold brew coffee blended with whole milk offers great flavor with a smooth, mild feel and is one of Early Bird’s most popular menu items.

Wheeler's Bagels

Some of the best places to get coffee aren’t “coffee shops” in the most literal sense. For example, Wheeler’s Bagels is known for their delicious homemade bagels made from artisan mill flours, but they also offer an impressive espresso bar. Enjoy a breve (espresso, steamed half and half, foam), Cubano (espresso, brown sugar, half and half), frappe, chai, latte, cappuccino, or an iced coffee made with coffee ice cubes. Wheeler’s coffee drinks are made with locally roasted, custom-blended beans.

Must try: Caramel Macchiato

Hot, bold espresso flavored with vanilla and caramel syrup gets a smooth, creamy finish with steamed milk.

Must try: Bulletproof Coffee

Similar in flavor and texture to a creamy latte, Bulletproof Coffee is made with unsalted butter, making it a favorite of those following a keto or low-carb diet.
