5 Spots to Grab Coffee in MD

Tired of getting coffee from fast-food places? You’re in luck. Maryland is home to lots of coffee shops and roasters, places that you may have heard of but never stopped in. So why not give one a try today? Bring your friends, a date, or your laptop -- whatever works for you. Here are some of the best coffees you can get here in MD:

1 Artifact Coffee

If you live in Maryland, you’ve probably heard of Artifact. This Baltimore mainstay serves up food like soup, sandwiches, and breakfast essentials, but what you’re really there for are the drinks. You can grab hot coffee as well as tea, Japanese cold brew, and even cocktails and wine. We can’t think of any reason to leave (well, besides the fact that they do close at night). 

2 Rise Up Coffee

This spot is the definition of a small-town success! Rise Up Coffee was born in St. Michaels on the Eastern Shore, and now you can find them in Easton, Salisbury, and Ocean City, as well as locations in Annapolis and Edgewater. Whether you’re in a hurry and you hit the drive-thru or you want to stay and relax awhile, you’ll find what you need at Rise Up. Grab a seasonal blend or an organic Maryland bag of beans!

3 Rooster Moon Coffeehouse

Looking for a chill spot to hang out with your friends, family, or even your dog? If you’re in western MD, you’ve got Rooster Moon right in your neighborhood. This Hagerstown hang has plenty of art and snacks for sale, but you won’t be disappointed with the variety of drinks, either. Treat yourself to a smoothie, tea, and of course coffees of all kinds. 

4 Zeke’s Coffee

We technically share Zeke’s with D.C. and Pittsburgh, but it’s too good to leave off the list, especially since it’s based here! There’s a Baltimore roastery on Montebello Terrace and a cafe on Harford road, so you can enjoy the small-batch coffee at home or on the go. They’ve been at it since 2005 and there’s no sign of them slowing down. Try the Charm City blend, the Gundpowder Espresso or the Tell Tale Dark for a taste of Baltimore. 

5 Ceremony Coffeehouse and Roaster

Want to elevate your coffee tasting experience? Ceremony is the place to go. With locations in Annapolis, Baltimore, and Bethesda you’re never too far from this expertly-made coffee that’s created from the finest ingredients. Try coffee from Kenya, Ethiopia, Mexico, and more, all without leaving the Old Line State.
