Independent Coffee Shop Owners Declare their Dependence on YOU!


As we prepare for the Fourth of July with all that the Declaration of Independence, patriotism, and freedom means for everyone, independent coffee shop owners and local roasters proclaim their dependence on your uniqueness and they want to recognize you.

Ready at the counter to make your cup of coffee the freedom of your expression, these baristas will stop at nothing to make your drink the way you want it. Each independent coffee shop has all their own unique coffee blends and lattes and smoothies that are fun to experience; and if you want to be really independent ask the barista or the coffee shop owner to make you the greatest cup of coffee they know how. Let them ask you what you want, what you like, what your in the mood for. The real joy and challenge every independent coffee shop entrepreneur has, is to create YOUR perfect drink. Try an independent coffee shop this week, or the Fourth of July weekend, and put them to the test.

Here is a sampling of some of the independent coffee shop locations in the Treasure Valley. There is one on your way to work, on your way home from work, on your way to a friends house, or nearby your particular holiday get away. This Fourth of July declare your dependence on an independent coffee shop and order something you really want to satisfy your personal coffee need, bakery desire, or whatever. They’ll be glad you stopped by and so will you.
