The Perfect Start to Any Road Trip is a Hot Cup of Coffee



Published:

Sometimes, the best part of an adventure is the road trip - and not all road trips are created equal.

Sometimes we hit the road at 4am, and sometimes we accidentally leave during rush hour traffic… But the great equalizer of any road trip is an extra-large, freshly brewed cup of coffee.

Whether you’re driving to visit Savannah or heading out of the city to explore for the day, Friendship Coffee Company is the perfect stop to experience locally brewed coffee before a long day on the open road. Friendship Coffee had been just a wholesale coffee distributor up until this February when they decided to expand and open their own coffee house and retail shop. Come into Friendship Coffee this summer located at 205 Johnny Mercer Blvd between 6:30 am and 6:00 pmto cool off from the Savannah heat with their locally brewed cold brew coffee!

Friendship Coffee is a coffee house and wholesale distributor that is native to Savannah – locally owned, brewed, and sold. They have a large variety of blends and drinks to choose from, but one of the all time favorites is their frozen drink, ALMOND JOY. Come try this drink to satisfy your sweet tooth or order a Columbia blend for a more balanced, mild cup of coffee.

They’ve got food and friendship to share, so remember to be a good friend and buy a round of sustainable, fair trade coffee for your trip-mates - ‘because good friends deserve great coffee and delicious food’!

Friendship Coffee is located at 205 Johnny Mercer Blvd and is open from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm.
