The big name coffee shops made their mark on Americans for years with their fancy brews, fast working baristas and quick service. But now, what are sweeping the nation (especially the hottest cities in the nation) are local, prideful coffee roasters and artisans. Instead of spending several dollars on a mass produced product, you have got to try one that has been expertly sourced, lovingly prepared and the difference is life changing!
3 of the BEST local coffee houses on the scene in Jupiter are these:
Oceana Coffee in Tequesta
A buzzingly popular java spot is Oceana Coffee in Tequesta. Oceana Coffee serves delightfully good coffees that have been roasted in small batches and hand selected for the perfect cup of coffee. They offer everything from lattes to cold brews and even sell their award winning coffee to be taken home and brewed by you. The atmosphere is relaxed, with oversized leather couches and light blue walls. Local art for sale hangs around the shop offering a great communal vibe. Oceana Coffee is one of the original artisanal coffee shops in Jupiter/Tequesta and has continued its success for years.

Pumphouse Coffee Roasters in Jupiter
An ingenious and passion driven duo of brothers, Alex and Christian LeClainche focused their goals of a better coffee when they created Pumphouse Coffee Roasters. With coffee in their heritage, the brothers rooted their business after their experiences of visiting their family’s coffee plantation in Jamaica. “In our approach to roasting specialty coffee, the marriage between quality and taste is paramount,” Le Clainche says. “It is critical to us that our customers are served a quality cup of coffee with a high degree of consistency.” Their approach has been proven successful. Pumphouse Coffee Roasters have a storefront where you can buy their coffees and cold brews as well as bags of the small batch, roasted beans to brew at home.

Perk Coffee House in Tequesta
A little gem, with a rustic design, Perk Coffee House is tucked away in the Gallery Square South of Tequesta. The owners are an LA native couple with three girls that relocated to South Florida with a passion to deliver healthy, wholesome fare. Perk offers breakfast and lunch with intentions to open in the evenings soon. The earlier hours of the day, you can find delicious coffees, nutritional drinks like juices and tonics and amazing eats. Currently, Perk's hours are 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekends, but the coffee house will be starting evening hours Thursday through Saturday in the coming weeks. The shop also plans to host themed dinners, such as vegetarian and tapas nights, someday soon.
