9 Coffee Shops We Love

Here are a few of our favorite places to get a good buzz.

Fair trade coffee at Roots & Vines

Roots and Vines @ Trade Roots

This buzz will make you feel warm and fuzzy in more ways than one. Trade Roots, Westover’s favorite fair-trade gift shop, has a cozy inhouse café that’s decked out in colorful tapestries and pillows. As you’d expect, the daytime drink of choice here is fair-trade coffee (Ethiopian, Tanzanian, Bolivian, Colombian), sold by the cup or by the pound, from fair-trade purveyors such as Level Ground Trading and Equal Exchange. Brewed coffee and espresso drinks are served in hand-hewn mugs by local potter Scott Kaye, who has a studio at the Lee Arts Center.

5852 Washington Blvd., Arlington (Westover)
