Coffee is big in Missoula.  In-fact you will find several locally owned shops or kiosks on nearly every main street intersection.  With each shop creating it’s own personality and take on drinks, there is a variety of choices for all levels of coffee appreciation.

Some local shops have become known for certain drinks or goodies.  Sure everyone has a cup of coffee, and they can all whip up a latte like you would expect but the local flavors and drinks are where things get interesting.   This is what sets some of the Missoula coffee shops apart from the others.
