PALM SPRINGS

Koffi: At all three welcoming locations in Palm Springs, sip a damn fine cup of coffee (or coffee-tinged concoction) that was roasted right here in the Coachella Valley. The coffeehouse sells a variety of collaboration coffee bean blends, including one produced with Palm Springs Life.

DESERT HOT SPRINGS

Azure Palm Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa Oasis: An oasis of relaxation, this property specializes in boutique luxury. Beyond the spa offerings, restorative cleanses, wellness classes, and mineral water, discover unique gifts and souvenirs at the curated shop and recharge with organic coffee at the on-site café.

CATHEDRAL CITY

Sunshine Café: Welcoming the morning with a mug of joe at this rustic café feels homey, but don’t stop there. Order the biscuits and gravy and make the most of it.

RANCHO MIRAGE

Koffi: The popular local coffee chain roasts its sustainably sourced beans at this Rancho Mirage location. Craft the drinks your way with a choice of dark or light roast and plenty of milk alternatives.

PALM DESERT

IW Coffee & Chai Bar: A caffeine lover’s paradise, this Palm Desert hangout serves house-roasted coffee beans sourced from the women-led coffee brand Café Feminino alongside seven varieties of chai tea.

INDIAN WELLS

IW Coffee: Serving java from Joshua Tree Coffee Company, the industrial-chic coffee shop features ample communal seating and mountain views from an outdoor patio. Feeling peckish? Choose from a variety of sandwiches and pastries.

LA QUINTA

Main Street Coffee Company: Whether you’re in the mood for an espresso drink, a bite to eat, or a community atmosphere, you’ll find your fix at this coffee shop in Old Town La Quinta. Fresh-baked muffins, scones, and vegan sweet rolls are an easy pick-me-up. They also whip up items like avocado toast and breakfast burritos with turkey chorizo.

Everbloom Coffee: This modish coffee shop serves delicious caffeinated beverages such as oat milk honey-lavender lattes and matcha, as well as ½-gallon bottles of cold brew and chai that you can take home for later.

COACHELLA

Sixth Street Coffee: If you’re into specialty lattes, you’ll dig Sixth Street’s Mexican-influenced options. Popular picks include a well-spiced horchata latte and honey con canela. Sandwiches, bagels, and toasts are also available.
