Get Your Coffee Fix in Hilton Head

Hilton Head Island vacation rentalsAny old morning, but especially a chilly one, coffee is the first order of business. Whether we make it ourselves or head out to a coffee shop, drinking coffee is not just a routine, it’s a must.

Vacationers will be happy to know Hilton Head is home to several independently owned cafés, as well as several internationally known coffee shops. There’s even a coffee roaster on the island!

Independent coffee shops include Java Joe’s in Coligny Plaza. Java Joe’s calls itself a unique coffee shop offering patrons a quiet and relaxed atmosphere “ideal for serious coffee drinking, earnest conversation or intense consultation with laptops.” It offers coffee, tea, smoothies and a selection of food items. (843-686-5282)

If you need coffee and something sweet, consider stopping by Ronnie’s Bakery at Coligny Plaza (843-686-4900). Ronnie’s serves breakfast and baked items throughout the day. In the afternoon, you could stop by Wholly Cow at Shelter Cove (843-345-6789) for some coffee and ice cream. Wholly Cow is a Charleston-based company that serves all natural ice cream made with milk that is free of growth hormones.

Most coffee houses also sell bags of coffee under their own name so you can buy a bag to make in your vacation rental, or take it back home.

Bars, Cigars & Brew takes home brewing a step further by selling coffee that is roasted locally. Judge Java Roasting Co. roasts coffee to order and has created blends such as the Bluffton Brew, which is a bold roast using 100% organic coffee beans; and the Heritage Blend, which is a bold gourmet French roast. Choose from whole bean or ground coffee.

Interested in trying your hand at roasting coffee at home? Bars, Cigars & Brew also sells green coffee beans and roasting machines. For all of these items, check out Bars, Cigars & Brew’s retail store at 154 Beach City Road, or online at (843-689-3336) If you go online, check out the Coffee Encyclopedia and impress fellow coffee drinkers with your knowledge. We sure learned a thing or two!
