In this blog post, we will take a look at the 5 most popular coffee shop drinks in North Carolina!


Of course, hot coffee is the most popular drink in North Carolina, and is typically enjoyed year round. Your favorite coffee shop will have a variety of beans sourced from farmers around the world. There are many different ways to enjoy coffee, and there are coffee shops all over the state that serve up some amazing brews.

If you’re looking for something refreshing and caffeinated, iced coffee is the drink for you! North Carolina has some amazing iced coffees, and there are coffee shops all over the state that serve them up. You can choose from a variety of flavors and toppings, so you’re sure to find the perfect iced coffee for your taste buds.

Whether you like your coffee hot or cold, black or with cream and sugar, there is a perfect cup of coffee waiting for you somewhere in North Carolina!


A latte is a great choice if you want something creamy and sweet. This drink is made with espresso and steamed milk, and it usually has a frothy top. Lattes can be customized with all sorts of flavors and toppings, so you can create the perfect drink for your taste buds. Some popular choices include vanilla, hazelnut, caramel, as well as any sugar-free flavors your favorite shop has!

A mocha is another great choice if you want something sweet, creamy and full of deliciousness. This drink combines espresso with steamed milk and chocolate sauce to create adelicious cup of coffee that will satisfy any sweet tooth! You can also add other flavors such as vanilla, cinnamon, or cayenne pepper for an extra kick of flavor (BAM!). If you’re feeling adventurous try adding some whipped cream on top with chocolate drizzle! Even more amazingly, this drink can be created as a Hot, Iced, or Frozen (frappe) beverage that can be enjoyed year round! It makes this decadent treat even better. The best part about the Mocha? It tastes just like hot chocolate but with caffeine in it so you get all of those cozy feelings without being jittery after drinking one too many cups at night time before bed (trust us). That’s why we love this delicious drink so much!

An Americano is a great choice if you want something less sweet. This drink combines espresso and hot water to create a strong cup of coffee that will wake you up in no time! It’s also the perfect option for anyone who doesn’t like milk because there are no dairy products used when making an Americano. You can add cream or sugar if desired but this classic recipe calls only for espresso beans and water (some people prefer it black). We recommend adding some cinnamon powder on top for a calorie-free way to tweak your favorite beverage!

Nitro Cold Brew

This drink is relatively new to the coffee scene, but it’s been gaining popularity quickly! A Nitro Cold Brew is made by steeping cold brew coffee for an extended period of time. This results in a smooth and creamy beverage that has a slightly sweet flavor. Nitro Cold Brews are served on tap and poured into glasses similar to beer. They often have a thick head on them and can be carbonated like soda. If you’re looking for something unique and different, we recommend trying out a Nitro Cold Brew the next time you find yourself at your favorite coffee shop!

We hope you enjoyed this list of the five most popular coffee shop drinks in North Carolina! No matter what your taste, next time you’re in our beautiful state, be sure to stop by a local coffee shop and try one of these delicious drinks!
