Local Coffee Shops near me

The ultimate staple of the college experience: the coffee shop. Maybe you like one that has a bit of a darker, cozier ambiance or you prefer one that feels light and open. Or maybe, you just have never found the right place to really hone your focus in. 

Like many of the students at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) you probably haven’t found yourself on campus in a little over a year, no worries. Whether you’re in the mood for some iced coffee, some horchata and donuts, or maybe just some good ol’ coffee shop vibes– the Minero magazine team has compiled a list of local coffee shops near campus for you to check out.
