Port City Java

Globally grown, Carolina roasted.

1052 William Moore Dr, Raleigh, NC 27695, USA

What started as a small coffeehouse in Wilmington, NC, has grown to be a favorite of coffee drinkers from around the world. As we grow, we continue to take pride in the art of coffee. We give each step our unwavering attention; from handpicking specialty green coffee beans to roasting each bean to the highest standard and hand packaging all orders. We are hands-on through the entire process.

What Others Are Saying

Poor customer service! The Grubhub system is new to all of us, so we are learning it together. There was no option to add whip cream to my drink on the menu, so I put it under instructions. As I entered the building, the lady yelled at me in front of other customers. Her request almost made me feel like I shouldn't enter. Such disrespect! I have been a regular customer for almost 6 years. I won't step foot in this place again.

What Others Are Saying

Raleigh's Global Village Coffee is a gem! As someone who drinks a lot of coffee, I've tried many places in the Triangle area, but Global Village is the best in terms of quality, taste, service, and consistency. Similarly, I like the food, although some are better than others. There is no way to go wrong with the panini they serve here! Likewise, I've tried their ground coffee and it tastes great!

Dilworth Coffee

Sip as it suits you.

4320 Delta Lake Dr, Raleigh, NC 27612, USA

Firmly committed to coffee that makes you feel good. Whatever that means in your world. Thirty years as global nomad has revealed two truths: The "perfect coffee" takes many, many forms and faces. And there's no wrong place or time to enjoy a cup.

What Others Are Saying

Since I'm always looking for new coffee shops, I was going to try this one out. The hours of their weekend hours are unknown to me. In my opinion, they would be going out more during that period since they are more likely to be available. So far, I haven't tried it. Due to my distance, I never visit the area during the weekdays. Therefore, I was disappointed that this coffee shop was closed on weekends.

What Others Are Saying

Since I'm always looking for new coffee shops, I was going to try this one out. They may be open on weekends, but I never checked. This is when I would expect to see more people going out because it is when I would think there would be more people. So far, I haven't tried it. I am never in the area during the weekdays since I live about an hour and a half away. Therefore, I was disappointed that this coffee shop was closed on weekends.

Bean Traders

Have a laugh and Drink some bean.

105 W Nc 54 Hwy #249, Durham, NC 27713, United States

When Bean Traders first opened, most local independent coffee shops did not roast their own beans. Our name was chosen in part to let our customers know that we had more to do with our coffee than just store and brew. We took our bean from farm to cup, and had a hand in all the processes in between.

What Others Are Saying

There is no better place to drink coffee than here. On-site roasting of beans. That extra fifty cent is well worth it. Despite opening across the street, Starbucks closed its doors after a year. That's how good it is

Larry's Coffee

What Others Are Saying

Coffee of such high quality. You can find the best coffee there based on your preferences because the staff is very knowledgeable. Additionally, they are dog-friendly. We love coming here to get coffee because we get to taste some of the coffee, learn about the notes, and learn about the seasonal offerings.

What Others Are Saying

I find that counter culture coffee always tastes delicious when it is warm, but once the temperature drops, the flavor disappears and the coffee becomes sour. I have tried five different coffees from you guys and they all taste the same. I have experienced intense tartness and sharpness when I have had espresso.

It has a range of excellent coffees you won't find anywhere else. There needs to be the same level of quality for the pastries. Both the cranberry scones and chickpea tartines had too much fun dough compared to the amount of cranberries and chickpeas inside. The outdoor seating area is great.
