Java, java, java! It’s the elixir of the gods according to a large swath of the population. (Wonder what would win out on a national poll: coffee or beer?) At last count, there were approximately 60 Tahoe restaurants in this area that would qualify as a Lake Tahoe coffee shop. That’s a lot of coffee options per capita, right? That should also mean that, with so much competition, you can expect the coffee game to be at high levels here. Meaning, you might ask? Well, cold drip, nitrous, French press, espresso, Aeropress and more, and, of course, beans roasted in-house. Not every coffeehouse will offer all options, but with so many Lake Tahoe coffee shops to choose from, you’ll soon find your favorite. And, yes, you can still get just a plain old cup of coffee out of a hot pot. Pass the creamer, please. Oh, and the lemon rind and cinnamon and half & half and exotic flavorings too. If you want to stick with Lake Tahoe coffee shops whose names are already familiar to you, you’ll find those here too. But our advice is to experience Tahoe to its fullest. You can always go back to the familiar when you leave.
