Panther Coffee, in the ultra-cool Wynwood Art District and two other Miami locations, makes all drinks and brews to order, specializing in cortaditos, espressos, and roasting their own beans. It’s a hip spot with a Pacific Northwest vibe matched with a nod to the bike culture in South Florida. Local artists, musicians, writers, and other Miami residents flock to their happy hours, poetry readings, and music events.
“Not only did these guys bring the Pacific Northwest coffee-shop vibe to Miami, but they make a killer espresso. Panther has a few locations, but this one’s my favorite, because there’s never a line of hipsters waiting for their macadamia-nut-milk lattes.”—Giorgio Rapicavoli
Miami is the land of Cuban coffee and frankly, just between you and me, it's not very good. A few years ago a talented, Portland-born coffee roaster was convinced by his lovely Miami-born wife to open a third-wave espresso bar and cafe in Miami's ultra cool Wynwood Arts District. And we thank the coffee gods for that.
