more about bluff city coffee

Established in 2006 based on Italian espresso basics, Bluff City Coffee continues to provide high quality espresso beverages.  There’s no brewed coffee, just espresso-based drinks. 

The difference lies in the way the coffee is made. An espresso shot is brewed by forcing very hot water under high pressure through coffee that has been finely ground. If you order an “Americano” at Bluff City, you’ll still get a cup of espresso and water. It’s a fresh cup of coffee as opposed to a pot sitting there for 30 minutes.  Additionally, there is a wide selection of teas and smoothies.  A drink for every palette. 

Our beverages are augmented by a variety of fresh pastries and sweet offerings. Join us for lunch and enjoy a variety of freshly prepared sandwiches.  Each ingredient in our products has been carefully selected to offer the finest for our customers.  Additionally, we strive for excellence in customer service.

Then there is the atmosphere.  Bluff City Coffee is located in the South Main Historic District.  This means that trolleys pass just outside the windows at a slow speed.  You will see the occasional horse drawn buggy as well.  Yes, there are cars and parallel parking just like all metro areas.

Finally, we offer FREE WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS for our customers.
