Whenever I return to my hometown for a weekend or family holiday, the first thing I do is grab a few of my closest friends and roll up to this coffee shop. Always.
A Cup of Common Wealth's mission is practically stated in the name it bears. With an incredibly genuine staff, locally crafted drinks (they recently began working with Lexington's Magic Bean Coffee Roasters), and pay-it-forward initiative, this place is loyal to their community through-and-through.
Pictured are a few of my favorite concoctions: cold brew, pomegranate Ale-8 (a soda produced only in Kentucky), and an iced matcha latte.
